Clamping down!

Here is a small project I've been working on. For the avoidance of doubt, its a bed I'm making in oak. I'm using locally grown and sourced timber from the saw mill down the road. So far I've made and glued up the head and foot boards. If I get some time tomorrow evening I might join it all together.

My table is about that flattest thing I've got and pretty handy for clamping stuff to.

As usual, webbing straps are brilliant for clamping stuff together! When you're not using them for that you can even tie stuff to your roof bars with them :)

I'm getting the last bits of the inside of the house finished. When I get chance I make big progress but in the words of David Borras "Time is the problem..."
