Non Productive Night
After another wid night of wind and torrential rain I was again a little concerned about the build site. There had been some leaks and the floor got quite wet in places, but no damage to anything. More leaves to sweep up though! I spent about half an hour clearing and preparing a space for the Douglas Fir which shoud be arriving tomorrow and then decided to start cutting some ply. I got a sheet of 18mm up on blocks and marked out the the two skeg sections. Unfortunatey my little Exact circular saw only cuts to 14mm so I decided to use the jigsaw. As soon as I started cutting however I realised that the blade was too coarse and it was splintering the edge of the cut badly, I tried the circular saw but that was worse. I then had a brainwave and used the Exact saw first and followed with the jigsaw to cut the last 4mm. The top was fine but the back was splintered. I didn’t want to continue getting rough cuts so I caled it a night. I will try and get some fine jigsaw blades tomorrow. All in all I’m not going to get a lot done this week. The company Christmas Party is on Wednesday night and I am out on the town with mates on Friday night. Still tis the season to be jolly and I’m not going to get stressed just yet.
