Default My first project in Turkey

Hi Everyone

Just wanted to share with you my first project in Turkey. We are based in UK and bought a holiday home in Turkey which almost immediately burnt down. That was the bad news and I have every expectation that the Turkish courts will eventually pay out the compensation probably to my Great Grand Children ! The good news is that we will end up with a far better house and one in which I am going to be able to my mark upon.

Turkish workmen are lovely people but leave a little to be desired in terms of cleanliness and finishing so the "Boss" told me that a now have to put my woodworking hobby into real construction skills. Turks have been kicked off site and now setting up my new workshop here and what better to start with than a Ron Paulk Bench.Unfortunately I cannot post the URL but he can be found easily on You tube. This turned out to be a simple project to follow from the excellent plans and has produced a really solid base which I can pack away and which is really complimentary to my Triton Work centre.

So here it is waiting for the action - you will see that my outdoor workshop has a wonderful view and no requirements for dust extraction

Gorgeous view and a nice bench. Why would you want to mess it up witha buch of sawdust? I would still go for the dust collection.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I definitely cannot have a workshop in such a location, 'cause the daybed would be my first and last project. It is a lovely view. I like the bench.
Here's wishing you all , all the best.

I work outside in the car port, Alastair, but your view beats mine hand down........
