    Default A certain Sign for the times ?

    Took a quick picture of this sign in a genuine Boatyard where Craft are still crafted from timber, there is still the sound of Timber cutting saws being used, planners etc etc, plus of course those aromas from the opened paint pots and freshly painted surfaces, oh a joy to behold, again

    I haven't got a photo, but Frank Knights Shipwrights in Woodbridge, Suffolk, used to have a sign hanging on the handsaw rack:
