Okay, so remember the bits of wood that were teetering on the brink between reuse and restore? Recall the might-be-Mahonia that we started the month with? Recall asking about tips on wedge-making? And most vital of all as it turned out, yesterday's Elizabethan name-calling? Add an hour or so of w'shop time carved from somewhere (i.e. I was in too much of a hurry), and you get this mash-up of a result.

I can't do wedges. I just can't. They always look like manure, especially when I manage to split off bits of them and have to wing some kind of alternative design*. But there, it's kinda functional, which is a step up from being two bits of wood, and I got to make some shavings, which is a step up from forgetting where the w'shop is.

*By "design", I do not mean a well thought-out solution to a problem. I mean a bodge. Just in case you were in any doubt.
