@Nusbacher @AspiringLuddite Thanks. The bezels were marked and centre punched for the three holes. Drilled, then hand cut with metal shears. Hand filed into the disc shape. I made a die and used a rounded punch to get the centre of the bezel to pout deeply enough to house the stone. Then a larger die and punch to get the final conical shape. I cut the quarter detailing with a small triangular needle file. Fixing the bezel with rivets holds the stone.The fleus de lys were a real time hog on this.
@AspiringLuddite you are very welcome. Also as a side note, you are a supremely patient bloke.
@agnes I thought so :)
For food safety reasons, it is important to have multiple cuttings boards, but you don't want to overdo it. In my house, there are two flavours - raw meat and everything else. So if your cake tastes of garlic, now you know why. #cooking
As I walked into this charity shop - http://www.wnda.org.uk/pages/what-we-do/no8-the-old-bookshop.php - the man said, 'Are you the fellow that was in last week and looked at the Terry Pratchett hardbacks.?'
'I am,' I replied.
'Look here,' he said, and as I did he went to see if there were any more in the back.
I'm starting to feel like I belong here;-)
Medievalists and Medieval-adjacent. Sort-of.
