I just received a lovely set of photos from a meeting of the German carpenters a week ago. Their main discussion was about the construction of the European Pavilion; how to divide down the making of it so different groups could work simultaneously on different parts whilst ensuring it would all fit together at the end of the event. They also had a Skype meeting with the Japanese carpenters ... and with myself of course!
There was also the final push to get all the tools that were being shipped in advance to Japan ready to go. Whilst many new ones have been given by some wonderful sponsors, the others are fine old tools that have been bought for or given to the project. Many of these were in need of a little cleaning and sharpening first and by the looks of the pictures the team thoroughly enjoyed the activity.
