Here's a picture to give you an idea of the environment I've been learning/working in. We've been split into groups to design and build something to sit on, so my group is making a star-shaped chair. I'm glad everyone is getting on and just getting it done. I feel a bit useless because I haven't done any technical drawing before and I'm a little out of my depth in that respect, but carrying wood about and chiseling stuff is the most fun.
I'll post more substantially when I have something substantial to show.
And there's a picture of the lad. Sher didn't he only go and quit his job and start this course, what a guy!
