I'm getting there!

I had the operation on my right knee on 26th October, and it seems to have done the trick, I had to take it easy for the first two weeks, then I went back for a check-up, without my walking stick! I am now doing DIY therapy on the treadmill and in the swimming pool, and I can feel the strength returning to my knee. I have been told this should last me five hopefully six years, and then I will have to have a knee replacement, but for the time being I am really pleased.

I go this Friday for a second spinal block, which again hopefully will kill the pain in my back, that will just leave my left knee, which will probably be done sometime next year, but I can live with that for the time being.

I have been spending a bit more time in the workshop, I decided that I was not happy with the fonts I used on the wall hangings in my last post, so I started again.

I did four or five of these, but the trouble is that although Marcela is selling them in her shop, people admire them until they ask the price, which is equivalent to £10 each, and Marcela takes 20%, so it's hardly worth the effort, but it kept me occupied for a few days.

I have now got some more work for my neighbour, she wants some menu boards, to clip the menus to, with the Restaurant Logo.

I took the above photo, printed it to the correct size, and then copied it onto tracing paper, I then used 6mm plywood, and cut out an example board, using carbon paper I then transferred the image onto the ply, and started burning:

It took just over an hour to complete the design, but I was happy with the finished product.

So provided the neighbour is happy with the work, I've only got another seven to do! She talked about painting them to the logo colour, but if she wants that she will have to do it herself, I am no artist.
