The summer has finally arrived here in the fjord, and this is us enjoying the late evening sunshine Friday night.
Work has progressed incredibly well, come the weekend, "there is nothing left in the tank".
Raphael Beil managed to cut the large flowing form out in a single cutting session over 2 days, using a small 5inch angle grinder. What looks like just some messy work is decades of cutting experience, and in my view is on par with brain surgery, it is really that difficult to do.
This side has 2 large cut outs, and it is very difficult to reach the deeper parts with any kind of tools.
I call it valley of pain and dirt...
