New shed, new toy, new skills Answered
I've got a new shed! I am now the proud possessor of two sheds.
The new one is just storage - garden chairs, tents (we have six tents, but there are only four people in the household - how did that happen?), lawnmower etc, which means I now have something novel in my original shed - space to work!
At the same time, I've bought myself a new toy - a scroll saw (or fret saw, if you prefer), a Ferm FFZ-400N, if you're bothered by that kind of thing. It's second hand, and only has one speed and no manual, but it was also only £20.
So, I'm now practising - I bought some cheap ply, and I'm working on a new project, which I hope to post by Wednesday. Unfortunately, there's a bit of a hiatus, since I've managed to snap the only blade I had. What the heck, that's why they come in packs of ten, but I can't get a pack until Monday.
Oh, and the shed:
6x4 foot "lap" shed from B&Q, bought as a kit because I couldn't buy the raw materials anywhere near as cheaply.
Basically, I got what I paid for - I spent as much time fixing the manufacturing faults as I did building it. There are three fixes visible in the shot below, plus three fixes inside, not to mention the six or seven places where you can see daylight through the timber, and the very flexible window that will probably get sucked out by the first storm of winter...
If you need a shed, and can only afford £135, then save up for something better.
