A true craftsman on all levels. He really puts into perspective why many of us create what we do, and why todays education system doesn’t allow peoples full potential to be explored. I can really relate to this as someone who didn’t fit the system, who preferred that after work shower… A must watch
The larch log shed is complete(ish).
I forgot to take a final photo when it was done.
All the timber is from the woods where I used to work. Transported and worked by ourselves .A total of 1 1/2 miles from tree to shed.
Abandoned farmhouse, Derbyshire, UK.
A small farm with a courtyard. In an amazing spot, with an incredible view. Damn creepy though.
We’re going go back with a better camera soon..

The makings of a larch log shed.
Unfortunately flat doesn’t exist I this part of Derbyshire so over its 12ft span there’s a good few feet difference.
More pictures when it’s finished next week.
So it’s Well Dressing this weekend in my home town of Wirksworth.
Every year community groups and schools decorate clay covered wooden frames (wells) with petals, seeds and leaves. Originally thought to be a pagan tradition, It is said that it would help bring purity to wells. Primarily utilised during the Black Death. It’s a tradition that is said to have started in a village called Tissington not to far from here in 1349.
Now it just seems like a good excuse for a party!
