Goonhilly Downs

Monday 18th July 2016

After a morning at the beach beside St. Michael’s Mount and an afternoon spent reading at the camp site, I needed something to eat for dinner.

Another short drive in to Mullion and I bought a sausage bap [I hate that word] with chips before driving on towards Goonhilly Downs – the unmistakable site of radio telescopes (dishes) that I’d spotted on the drive down through Cornish countryside.

New Project – Any Guesses?

I’m writing this post to ask whether anyone reading this can guess what I might be making?

Stack-laminating American lime – but for what?

It’s a way to use up my collection of American lime (basswood) offcuts (although, that has little relevance). I’m stack-laminating them in such a way because I do not have anything as substantial available as a stock size. I think I’ve added two more layers since taking this photo but the height or depth is not critical.

Obviously, once I’ve finished laminating, I’m going to have to cut it in some way, if you notice all the overhang…

Thank you for reading. I look forward to reading your suggestions! 😉
