Well, you will have realised by now that I work in fits & starts - and the past week has been fairly light on opportunities to disappear loftwards. However this evening has been one of solitude, so after I'd been up the Moor to maiden a f*@my and then half an hour of repairing (don't ask), I set to with the Ajax fuz.....

The real bane has been 3/32" strips which vary in thickness...I know that is why all you Masters strip your own wood, but let me tell you - if I did it it would have been worse..!!!

Because the lower longeron has quite a severe curve in it, I am still concerned that there may be some stresses built in, and I am still worried that when I lift it from the board it may go 'Sproingggg!!!!' and one half will have the nose half an inch lower than the other. I have painted copious water onto the wood whilst pinned to the plan three times to try and combat this. It'll be fingers crossed during the Grand Unpinning Ceremony tomorrow night...
