The Other Side Of The Office
Jan Coates has been a well seasoned temp for many years, working for a few Recruitment Agencies, in Harrogate and Leeds, covering many many assignments and different environments such as Law, Hospitals, Social Services, TV, Hotels, Financial Advisors, Building Contractors, Colleges and Private Hospitals etc.
Observant, witty and good humoured, Jan started a couple of years ago making notes for this book, which all started as she stood on the cold and damp platform awaiting the 8.08 train from Harrogate to Leeds. Most people read on their journey, but Jan was always so absorbed by her fellow passengers, their loud conversations and disgusting habits! These larger than life characters prompted Jan to put pen to paper as a prelude and introduction to her book "the Other Side of the Office" where she started to observe the office environment too as a temp, where there worked the good, the bad and the ugly! Not to mention the lazy!
Easy-to-build Adirondack Furniture
Building Adirondack furniture is a time-honored craft. Sturdy and rustic, this furniture can be a beautiful addition to any indoor decor, although it's most often used to set the scene outdoors. There, the furniture is subjected to a lifetime of abuse. Yearly it moves from somewhere hidden away (probably dark and musty winter storage) to front-and-center on the summer stage. Now, hour after hour it is beaten on by intense UV light, drenched in driving rains, then fried again in the summer sun.
Through it all, the furniture patiently endures--ever handsome, ever inviting, ever lasting. To survive summertime abuse and the semiannual ritual of being dragged into and out of storage, outdoor furniture must be sturdy, rugged, and well built--all qualities that epitomize Adirondack pieces.
This bulletin contains instructions for building an Adirondack chair, matching footstool, companion side table, and Westport chair (an ancestor of the modern-day slatted Adirondack chair). Each project will take the moderately skilled carpenter less than a day to fabricate; for the beginner, maybe a weekend.
Learn how to choose the right lumber and hardware, complete with instructions for table, footstool, and the Westport chair.
