    Well done!

  6. Great work Derek - lovely tone on the woodwork and the door furniture!

  7. A door. But not just any door. A special door, by special request, built by an obviously special granddad. It looks great!

  8. Ooh, I like this. “I asked her why but she wouldn’t tell me”. The mystery is killing me.

    Just fantastic.
