The adage that money can't buy happiness maybe true in some instances, but it definitely CAN'T buy skill so I wonder wha'ts in the box.

Posty card led me to collect this box earlier today.



Maybe a timber stump jumper by John Ellis.

Yep but no ordinary timber stumpy - a special, a VERY special stumpy.

Turn the clock back a few aeons...

I purchased this very sad and shagged number 7 that had seen better days and had been desecrated with felt pen re decoration.. 




I carefully sanded back to hopefully include a nude/ raw blank in my collection but as you can see, the original blank was far from 'pretty'...




What to do....Hmmmm

A pleading and near begging telephone call to Qld saw old number 7 heading north for initial restoration with possible surgery on the cards.

Resto done


Now back to today's mail and the mystery box is opened to reveal..



YES the MASTER himself... Mr Chris Sinclair has worked his sensational magic...

Enjoy the following 2 images.....





I don't need to suggest you suss out the details as his work speaks volumes..

Well done Chris and thank you thank you thank you

Wadey the ecstatic
