    Post lots and lots of pics and details of the good and bad points of the build. This is really interesting.

    Just realised the photo I posted is last weeks effort, admittedly not much of change hence the reason for posting the wrong photo. Sorry about that. Should have been this one.
    The challenge has to been to rekindle my woodworking skills. This and constantly referring to the plans for interpretation of the drawings makes for very slow construction.
    Hoping to step it up as I get in to the next week.

    Most of us would have started with making a spice rack or something!

    Hi David, I downloaded the 19 .pdf's, is that all that would be needed or are there more3 required? Thanks for your help on this David.

    Some further advice.........
    I downloaded almost all of the photos and comments on each of the web posts. I presume you translated them first.

    As I may have indicated, I spent literally hours studying every detail(the Westminsters are a very complicated design)and to further complicate matters the guy has also included some of the previous measurements from another copy which are clearly wrong(these are the four or five plans he posted before the 19PDF's)
    Sorry it sounds as though I am advising you against starting the build.

    Feel free to PM me if you want advice as you go along.
