Double use board

A couple of posts ago I mentioned the new fiddle yard being built for Edge. This must go on record as the longest it's ever taken me to build a baseboard. This is due to the fact that I've just been doing bits as I've walked past rather than just sitting down for an afternoon and hitting it.
The eagle-eyed will have noticed that there is a suspicious cut out in the front edge not typical of fiddle yard construction and that I've used 4mm ply for the first time since 1990. This is dual purpose land as it seems daft to build a storage yard to just go out once, so it's destined to have a second life. The wine bottles are filled with water to use as weights while the glue goes off. Problem is, I have to take the wine out first.
BTW it's 32" x 8" before I get an email.


  1. So having drunk the wine the cut out is clearly to accommodate your stomach

  2. I said 50:1 not 32"! Steve
