Stacks of stiles

Most of the stiles, panels and muntins stacked, ready to start joining, when I get back from a trip to the north country i.e. East Riding of Yorkshire this weekend.

Going to see family and hopefully visit Star Carr, a mesolithic site from 11,000 years ago, which has the earliest evidence of carpentry in Europe, and not just carpentry, but riven carpentry! The earliest record of my family comes from less than two miles from this site. There's a bit of a gap from 11,000 years ago to 1670 so I'm not claiming direct descent from the people who wore masks made from deer antlers and fashioned wooden jetties there, but you never know.
