He's going to try and make me a "Lotus tree" :mrgreen:

Image

I'd asked him where I could find a curved plank to do it and he told me he'd understood the hidden meaning Image and was going to make me one ;) (he loves working on wood and he's veeeery good !).

Just, I musn't be too impatient it's going to take some time :mrgreen: (perhaps for Christmas ?).

I'll let you see the result asap ;).

Lucky you! That's a nice bit of furniture!
There is a technique to bending wood, I forget now how it's done...

We're just getting started on ours which will be a bit more "traditional" but not as fuzzy as the store bought ones. We're hoping to keep the lines as clean as possible.

That's fantastic! I want one! :lol:
We're not that adventurous, although the cat 'run' is in progress. The wood frame is up. :lol:
Keep us posted :mrgreen:

I have hinted to Alex that he could make one like that, but so far he has decided to ignore my comments. :?

You are very lucky AnnC :lol:

You do realise Ann that once you put a picture on here of your new tree then your poor grandad will end up with a full time job of making more of them as we will all want one :lol: :lol:

Bet you can't wait

I also love the lotus one too

Hey Ann

Thats not a problem we have a house in the south of france and there are some good courier companies around. I have recently arranged for a memory foam mattress to be delivered to our house in france as you can't buy them there and it was very cheap to get it delivered.

I was only joking about your grandad making more for everyone..........can you imagine how busy he would become, no we shall wait to see yours and then be green with envy.

:lol: :lol:
