    Another member of the family joins the spinny club

    Linden (youngest Grandson) decides making a mess in the shed is good fun.


    No WIP pictures as Grandad was in sole charge and too busy bonding etc.

    EDIT:
    Now I have a bit more time to myself, a couple of close-ups.

    Lindon,

    Your efforts brought out the beauty of that piece of wood.

    Well done!
