cut to the core!

A day's worth of wing cutting at Simon's gaff. It's a bit parky so
fast work makes for warm hands....

bed head Paul pretends he knows what he's doing; someone
should inform him it ain't so cool to be no jive turkey this close to Christmas!

we're set up and cleared for cutting

templates for a 4 metre plus scalie

the ingenuity of an Englishman in his shed

let the cutting begin; in the subzero conditions it takes the hotwire
about 2 weeks to get up to temperature

 it's a serious business!


a wing is born!

let's celebrate with a little heat to the hands...

and a load more to the toilet area!
