First up is a description (that's on the previous page) and then a prologue of sorts (opening, introduction, that type of thing - that's this page), followed by a pictorial summary, the plan drawings, the material and shopping list, and then the clear step-by-step instructions.

A project abroad
I did this project while travelling in England - so I had to adapt to one or two unfamiliarities with local woods, terminologies, idiosyncrasies, etc. Also I had no tools with me (as you usually don't when travelling), so I had to start from scratch in that department which meant buying the bare minimum tools required to get the job done. Never-the-less, the show went on. I drew up some plans of my intended project in order to work out the material quantities, then I trekked down to the local building supply store to see and order the required building materials and tools. I had them delivered the next day. I could have done it all online but I preferred to see the wood I was buying, especially in a new environment.
