Hello guys

Here is the start on the build that will happen for a few days here at home. The prosess take its time as Petri has 100 theory's and I have 200 and to mix them is wonderful mind work. It is a fact that none of us, Petri or I, we do not have the language specially designed for this sort of thing. It create a "interesting" work on the minds.
Here is the humble start.

Great friends, from two countries, brought together by this forum and the love of steam working together side by side. How good is that, eh?

Thanks guys
As the basics of the table foundation gets lay out on the floor (photos so far only show part of it), the dimensions of it all gets a little bit scary. it will become absolute massive.

Things go slow as we have travels and sightseeing as a priority.
Still we do make progress and what we do not do finish I will finish once Petri has left.




And of course, We also enjoy the weather...
