Touching up around the conservatory

Well here we are, at last we Dave can get on the difficult task of restoring the mahogany rail, to it’s former glory. It’s been water damaged in places due to the leaky old back cabin this is where a wooden support at the back used to be. But isn’t anymore. (Each side’s the same).
 
Crying out for care and attention…

Doing the whole thing, not just the grotty bits…

The new conservatory literally STUCK up out the way. But not quite how it’s intended to be me thinks…

Other side too, anything to save time…

With the back bit rolled up we both said it looks a bit like a market stall that we could use to serve food to passing neighbours on the pier. We could do fruit and veg, or even various boating items. All incomings going towards the cost of the Conservatory, so it should only take us about 20 - 30 years to balance the books…
