Gadgets 3

Here is my little fleet of wood clamps awaiting their first task: the gluing of an endliner  at the stern end of the lute. I enjoyed making them, and I tried to make them well; they are meant to last the distance Рwhatever that may be.

To my prejudiced eye they look quite charming and companionable….but apart from that, I am hoping they can actually do the job.

  1. I have genius neighbour who makes his own tools if it can’t be bought–and some jobs require special adaptions for a specific job. He can fix anything and has high standard like you Chris..

    1. Thankyou Richard. Sometimes the high standards are a little too high for comfort. But I greatly admire fellows like your neighbor, who can invent, improvise and adapt: totally undaunted. They are the companions to have on a long journey.

  2. Its not a little fleet, but almost an armada!

    1. Well done Ian. I hope you enjoy that massage.

      As for the wooden clamps: I will probably need a few more….

    1. Greetings Sally.

      If the little wood clamps turn out to be ‘non-functional’, I can always assemble them (as in the photos) to create an Installation….
