After coffee and a bit of a chat we went upstairs. Bert was going to teach me how to make a piano and in order to do so I was going to use various machines. I love working with wood, which was one of the reasons I had chosen this workshop.
|The parts laid out|
Bert had laid out all the parts of the piano and we made a start. I won’t bore you with all the details, but I got to use the table saw, jig saw and router with router table to make and fit the various parts. When a piece of wood was a bit too thick I also had the use of the cutest little thicknesser I have ever seen in my life. I would just love to own this little toy!
|Small size thicknesser|
It works just the same as the full size one, like every other machine does, but too me it looked just so special…
Lunch wasn’t forgotten and since it was again a lovely sunny day we had it outside and chatted away amicably. After lunch I still had to work very hard to get it all done. I seemed to be a bit slow, because I had problems getting the fence of the table saw set to the right measurements and when working in mms it is of course most important. Anyway, I got there steadily:

For us it was a quick bite to eat on the way home and a short evening till it was time to go to bed. An end to another very satisfying day…
Bye the way, all my workshop items I will eventually show of course. I just don't get the time right now to finish everything.
