rolling again

The next couple of rolls will be partial, because there are creature I would rather work all in one go, and that means a couple of funny little half rolls of the frame. I normally try not to roll too often becuase the frame is really big and awkward to handle – Gareth extended it for me, which means it now has to be bolted into place.

  1. I’ve never worked at a real trestle, but I rather suspect they would, ahem, “enhance” my existing occasional back trouble. Other frames are available!

    • I sort of get the impression that trestles are seen as the “proffesional” option, and a bit of a status symbol (I’m horrified by the prices charged for them – I showed gareth one the other day and as a woodworker he thought they were spectacularly overpirced) but I only use them for living history, I prefer my standing frame
