Look! We Made a Windowsill

It was girls’ shed day today.  The only boy around was Joel, who was a bit crestfallen to find no Doug and no Damian to play with.  Instead, like Ninette de Valois, he put us into contorted positions in order to perform… SAWING.

We were making a windowsill, which involved all sorts of new skills which I’m not sure we really wanted.  After Joel left, we were left to our own methods which were a bit on the botching side – a lot of remedial work with a chisel.   But we ended up with a magnificent windowsill and we felt great.
