I went for more timber this morning to carry on with my veranda. The problem at the timber yard is that most of the timber is twisted, Chico the owner is a dab hand at cutting and plaining down timber to get the size you want. I wanted 2.5 metre long and 8inchs wide, Chico cut it out of a plank 3 metre long and over a foot wide. At the finish he had cut just what i wanted now for the rest as i wanted 6 lengths of timber, Chico is a master at using his machines and getting just what you want.
It didn't take long and i was home and getting on with my soon to be veranda. As you can see from the pictures i have made a good start today. The frame is now almost complete i have just a couple of pieces left to do and the base is finished.
