bird man


Went to visit the birdtable man today, as a couple of friends Need to own one of his one offs.
He lives with his wife and dog in a tiny cottage, we found it by knowing the right area then looking for a garden with one of his tables on show.

He works in his shed down the garden, his wife does patchwork and knits.

They have just had the phone put on so people can phone them, so I can now arrange to take friends down there.
It was lovely to talk with people who also have this insane need to "make" things continuously.

Fantastic - I am so glad you are in touch with him (Do you have "Vincent's room?)- anyway - I do think about his tables and one day, when I have the cash!

these are magic! I love the timber-framed birdhouse. Someone just said that you can tell an englishman by his hobbies. Old car enthusiasts, model railway guys etc but this chap takes the biscuit!
