Frustrated on the computer, I went out to the workshop to do something – anything – to make me feel better.
I had a new set of wood-turning tools to test drive – and a log I picked up during a ‘walk with the Boyz’ beckoned.
So I unclipped the lathe on the French-cleat wall and set about making some wood chips.
Almost straight away, things started to go wrong.
Spoiler alert – I’m still alive.
But it could have been worse 😉
Make-n-Do is the CONTACT Editor’s personal ‘playlist’ on the CONTACT YouTube Channel, where the philosophy is making do with the tools and materiel I have and making and doing as an escape from the computer (though, ironically, the video editing then ties me to the computer for almost as many hours as I spent Make-n-Do in the shed in the first place )
Also on the CONTACT YouTube Channel…
- Military News – hundreds of military-news videos
- The Making of CONTACT – an editor’s-eye-view of story selection, page layouts and more
- Shots from the Editor’s Desk – infotainment loosely relevant to CONTACT publishing
- Mavic Pro – non-military missions with the CONTACT drone
- Make-n-Do – shots from the editor’s shed
- Personal vlogs – grandkids, holidays, personal time – like a real YouTube vlogger
