I’m a bit busy right now. Enjoying myself, but a bit busy.

Most of this week has been getting to know the college and what loud and dangerous bits of machinery do which job and how they can hurt you. To date this involved a safety talk on all the interesting ways you can maim and kill yourself and anyone within a few metres of you when using a fast spinning circle saw, before cutting a thick pine plank into little chunks, which is a remarkably unsatisfying if noisy experience. Then we tried to cut straight lines in said pine using a hand saw, which was much more satisfying, and after an hour of sawing I could see a definite improvement: at the very least it was a workout for the arm muscles.

Eight more hours of cutting wood tomorrow, followed by theory lessons later in the week, which is all very well but it’s playing hob with my blogging…
