This is the "weetabix" pattern scribed on to a ply board -then on to 19mm ply for final fitting of grating before the teak is cut
Now is the time to introduce the two new crew members....... We have Kamil ("Owen") Janczulewicz(Poland) and Alexander (pronounced with a distinct RUSSIAN accent) ("Hub") Petit ( Colorado,USA).
Comunication has sometimes been strained when Kamil (holding his framework) was yelling at Dave - the OWEN - the OWEN !!! - Dave said...what ARRE you talking about - the OWEN ??.
It was a few minutes when Dave realised that "V"s are pronounced as a "W".
Kam ("Owen"! LOL) has never heard the end of it!! You would think that USA/Brit comunication would be somewhat easier ( apart from some US spelling mistakes ( !!! LOL )but when asked if the one hole in the beautiful work-top he varnished fited the HOB - he said - "HUB ??" what the hell is a "HUB"??? - "HOB" to the rest of us !! ha ha !!
So I hope you all love the "familly portraits !!
