Angus does the dangerous work

I am making a bench and I’m not allowed to do the dangerous work with the big sharp tools as I would get tangled up in them, and that would blunt the blades.

This is Angus who is helping me with the dangerous bits. he is like my stunt double.

The machine in the background that looks like a pizza oven is actually a thickness planer which is very clever indeed, and made all the pieces exactly the same thickness.- It probably could rub the lumps off a pizza too.
