    This guy, https://www.thejoyofwood.com.au/author/greg-miller/ is quite a fan of olive wood. Talking to him occasionally and also when I demo at the wood shows he dries quite a bit of his wood in the microwave. NB: Carving wood needs to be green otherwise it's too hard to carve. Have a read of some of his pages, there seems to be quite a few valuable tips there.

    Using a flooring particle board underneath allows you to get the most cover from your boards on top as there is no need to ensure that the boards join on a joist. Once done you'll never know there is board underneath apart from how solid it will feel. Here in the West and using jarrah we do "end match" the boards so a tongue and groove on the ends to allow joins anywhere. Not sure if that's an option with pine though... Using a termite treated particle is always a great idea too.

    A while ago I had a look at Airtasker, thinking it may be a way to add some additional, using my skills.

Offering $30.00 for both jobs. This sort of thing was quite common, so I moved on.

    16 years or so ago I bought one of this brand, "second hand" but previously uninstalled. https://arrowheaters.com.au/ Fan forced and easily warms our place. In the box it came with new bottom grille, new internal sides and new internal top plate (I think). One of the best features is that you can empty the ash pan without the heater being out. In our place we light at the beginning of winter and it pretty much runs around the clock from then on, barring it accidentally going out. So being...
