It was a great weekend, helped by the excellent weather. The sound of carpenters echoed from behind the wall as saws drills, chisels and planers began a symphony of music. Holger came with a simple plan from which he gave jobs to almost a dozen people who then repeated their jobs over and over again. Tony soon became a ghostly figure, as the white dust from his rip saw began to grow from his beard and face. Claudia was soon carving oar handles with the other three, whose lengthy timbers became an obstacle course for anyone looking to leave. Be it Japanese saws or one of an array of old-fashioned planes, there was a job for everyone. All the while the hum of the planner kept people in tune with music. Tea breaks, lunch breaks, evening breaks, it all continued throughout the weekend. Then as minds collided in a mutual space, glue, screws and tacks had us all playing twister over and back. The currachs began to slowly appear from the laughter and crack. Steamed ribs are on the menu next time but for now its paint and oar making.....thanks so much Holger for imparting your knowledge and skills, and thanks everyone who came along, looking forward to the next weekend...!
