If you have a home workshop during these troubled times you are very fortunate. What better place could there be to self isolate or practise social distancing. The hours and days can fly by when you are engaged in the act of making.
.
To all those around the world being asked to isolate and social distance please do what you can. The science clearly shows that it will save lives and help reduce the pressure on health services.
.
To all those on the front line fighting against this cruel virus you are heroes.
