    Heat it up with a blow torch and then blind it with sharp sand for a key. Anything you put on top of it will take forever and a day to dry out though.

    honestly get yourself an Airfix model or something off of ebay. I was drawing plans to make a Cesna out of some scraps of 4mm ply last week. Also started whittling cos something popped up on my Facebook feed so now have a set of wood carving knives on order cos I reckon the Stanley knife I've...

    She would more than likely have to work up here unless you were going to be doing the move totally debt free i.e. Buy up here for cash and money in the bank. yes there are cheap houses but there's no shortage of million plus houses in the North East either.

    There is money to be made but, obviously it would take time to build up the contacts \ customer base.
