It is rather an own-goal.

I've always said the best response to the EDL and their like is simply =

You can't help but think they've done the EDL some positive propaganda

A little stop-motion woodwork

Posted by H D <rossi46fan-at-gmail.com> on 30 April 2013 | 0 Comments

I came across this today, a walnut and maple bowl being made all by
stop motion. I thought it was really well done.

So we now have a dozen or so sticks in the kitchen, and I have a recipe for
roast duck breast, with sage, ginger, and rhubarb sauce sitting on the
