Small world - Big ideas.

Malcolm & Graham Pinch came for the first of two stool making days and made the legs which will have to dry before we can fit them to the seat.

As you can see they're twins which made it slightly confusing trying to remember which was which.
The day before we had a visit from our old friend Itzik Henig who now lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan USA. He used to work for Ford Research & Development at Dunton until he moved to the States. When Malcolm and Graham arrived we got chatting and it turned out that they had both worked for Ford at the same place and knew Itzik really well! Small world ?
In this recession when cars aren't selling Itzik was made redundant from Ford and has developed a solar powered water purifier for some of the 1.6 billion inhabitants of the planet who have no access to clean water or electricity. Have a look at his new website.


Saturday we were at Ely Apple Day, an event I always look forward to. One of my stalkers, Jon Warwicker, showed up with another John and took an active part in my demo. He shaped an ash seat rung for a chair we have to repair and reseat. Thanks Jon.
