Wood Show

If you read this in time and, you’re not too far away then, there’s still time to visit the Yandles Autumn Woodworking Show down in Martock, Somerset, today. I spent a bit of time there yesterday afternoon (my van was making strange noises by the time I left the M5, which I suspect indicates an issue with a wheel bearing – first time I’d heard it in almost seven-months though). I had a good look around without seeing too much that interested me or, too many recognisable faces (usually, there are a few) but, I really went for the 15% discount on timber! 😉

To be honest, it is only during their shows that I do buy timber from Yandles. They’re not quite as cheap as some of the other suppliers I know of but then, you do get to pick out your own boards; each one is priced up and marked individually and, they even prepare (plane) one face for you, so that you can pretty much see what you’re buying.
