A few notes before going on

I have written the instructions in the way that I have found to best work for me. The way that I do things may not be the best way for you but if you find a better way or want to try a different method of making something then contact me and let me know.

I have also attempted to provide the instructions to be used as a recipe like in cook books. This will assist in the working out of the tools and equipment needed to produce the item.

Above all, I have tried to make sure that the instructions follow safe procedures to minimise the risk of injuries but working with metal and sharp tools is a risky business - so beware if you don't do things in a safe manner. However, if you do happen to find a practise that I use that you deem to be reasonably unsafe then let me what it is that I am doing that is unsafe and the method I should employ to make sure it is done safely by contacting me.
