Some time ago, a person living nearby had put out some wood with a little sign ‘free firewood’. It seemed no one else was keen, so I went for it! These people had clearly been doing some home improvements. There was skirting board and ceiling joists and flooring. And in the aftermath of the 2019 swamphike, Henco suggested one piece of flooring could easily become a chopping board. I agreed! But you can imagine that making a new chopping board is not something that easily ends up at the top of the to do list. But now about a year later it got there! I cut it to a rectangular shape, sanded it as I feared unpleasant varnish at the surface, and I cut a sort of handhold into it. Done! So now I have a new chopping board. Very nice!
