A new Pavise

Here is my lastest pavise. So far, my best yet i think. Now i've got accustomed to working with the elm i'm quite loving it thought it is hard going. I haven't done much work on it for a week or two but should be resuming on tuesday.

It is roughly 110x65cm made from 22mm Elm boards. Made with a fairly standard construction of one board over two others. No fanciness here.

Still need to make the beak which will be piece from a few slabs of elm. Unfortunately i can't find elm in thick enough fully dried pieces to make it from one piece. A bit annoying but i'll cope.

The timber is from the fantastic British Hardwoods over Keighley way. Paul bennet put me onto them after hearing my woes about finding wide Elm boards.

Anyway, this is it so far:
