My day job.

“I can feel the deer closing in…”


I can feel the heat closing in, feel them out there making their moves, setting up their devil doll stool pigeons, crooning over my spoon and dropper

With apologies to Wm. Burroughs.  They are rather crowding around my workshop though.

Get yours: large; regular; or handbag-sized, all 20 notes a throw.

And another log store

SAMSUNG CSCThese log stores are becoming rather popular – this is my third this year.  A snip at £160!

Here is the one I made earlier for my brother-in-law fully loaded – two off 1 ton builder’s bags.

I have an idea for a few posts over the 12 days of Christmas, entitled “Anatomy of a Forester”, to do this and keep you entertained I will be drafting the posts before Christmas and releasing them daily leading up to Twelfth Day when the Lord of Misrule takes over – watch this space!
