    Default Building a hobbit hideyhole playhouse

    Started building a hobbit hidey hole for my little girl... Thought I'd post progress photos as I do work on it.... Plans are all in my head and features pulled from photos seen online. To buy one online is about 600 so thought I'd try it myself. Got little wood work skills but happy so far

    You never know when you might need to sleep in that yourself when you roll up home at 4 am after too many jars.

    Tried making a massive castle in a similar fashion to this once and you must have some sort of natural skill, mine looked like I built it in the hall of mirrors.

    Looking good mate
    You know he grew up as a little shitspark from the old shitflint and then he turned into a shitbonfire and driven by the winds of his monumental ignorance he turned into a raging shitfirestorm. If I get to be married to Barb I'll have total control of Sunnyvale and then I can unleash the shitnami tidal wave that will engulf Ricky and extinguish his shitflames forever. And with any luck he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shitwaves.

    The camshaft was from an old rover v8.

    The other lamp... The curvy one was made from main crankshaft bearings from a MaK marine ship engine.

    Off to sea tomorrow and taking these with me to paint up... Little picket fence for the hobbit house

    I'm an engineer on the ship.

    Nice work, does the captain know that your making a mess of his engine room?
