Up till now everything shown has been work done without electric or mechanized power, except for some material transportation. The reason first of all is no electricity available, with machines sitting idle stored up. Well, I have with mixed feelings begun to plug m’self back into the grid, at least for now.
Some old and new work together. To the left, stacked on the raised section behind the timbered walls, a stack of planks, edge jointed without machine help, about a day’s work. At the right a similar amount of the same work done with help from the table saw pictured centrally, about an hour’s work in a straight across comparison – hardly a valid one I might add.
