Nothing done on the study today - went to Clitheroe instead. Mooched around charity shops with Charlotte, bought some books and plates, together with wood dye and hinges.
Here are a few pictures of the ship kit I'm building instead. It's an Airfix 1:180 model of the Cutty Sark, bought on eBay for £3.95 + £3.25 p&p. These are just the main deck fittings. I'll write more about this remarkable ship in the future.
