Today it was time to get cracking and make cob – lots of it. Lyra might only be two, but between us we used nearly a ton of sand in the mix, and yet we aren’t half way yet.
Lyra is particularly keen on working with her trowel, and is genuinely quite good at laying and smoothing cob.
One thing we’ve discovered is that now the ducting is trying to dry out a ton of wet cob, the fire is harder to keep going well, but this should improve again with time.
The end of the day, and the bench is 2/3 done. Still loads more to go on around the barrel.
