No lets be fair apart from the blood stains he does do a good job and I benefit from his offcuts.  No No!!! not bits of fingers... wood.

  Generous to a guy you will never meet.

I spent a day catching up with the rounds 👍but they’re right this time . You should see the amount of shavings 😂

this is the mess with an extraction system as it’s impossible to extract on the rounds /ring fence

Nathan had problems with the first supply of wood for this job and had already cut many of the curved sections. The wood was going to be scrapped and he kindly brought me a supply which I have now converted into a carving board. Still not quite finished but happy so far. I just used the curve Nathan had cut and layered some strips of oak in between.

If you look at the frames Nathan is making they consist of sections cut on a curve. Those are what he dropped off for me. I just had to very slightly run them over a sander to get them to fit side by side. I then put the strips in between and the result was something pretty ergonomic.  The marking out and cutting and fitting he has to do to get these windows all perfect is mind blowing. Yes, I know he has the machinery to do most of the work but the lay out has to be done from human provided meaurements etc.

Wouldn’t it be easier to make the whole square or just cut it out of a bigger round tree 🤔

It boils my brain some days nev . I spent 2-3 days just marking out the curve 🙈. You’ll have to come down the unit and see them soon

I'm astonished that you aren't just feeding the laser plotted dimensions automatically into your CNC machine using a little robot hand (with a few maimed digits for authenticity) 😂

Cnc ? 😂 I wish . 
This wouldn’t be possible with one really how we make it but they would make the pieces . It’s 2.6m long too 👍

That's stunning workmanship and look what excellent work Neville did for me with some of the offcuts. Thank you both.

That board looks stunning dave . I suspect that their is much more skill involved than nev admits to . Top job nev 👍.
