Tordino – Getting the furniture for the reading room

2nd January 2024 – I rarely buy new furniture, and even less in a shop like Ikea, but for the library there is no other cheap solution. For years I’ve been buying Kallax cabinets and they are easy to mount, always the same model and colour, so whenever I need to extend the storage I can add some more. I bought three of the biggest they have. I hope to be safe again for a year or two…

Tordino – Wood work in the library

1st January 2024 – The conversion has taken to much time. I’m working on several projects and I notice the extension of the library, the reading room, is a bit left behind. I made a deadline: 1st February it should be ready. So I continued working today happy with the result!

Tordino – Working on BBS

4th December 2023 – I made some good progress on the BBS tool, mainly developing and adding old postcards to the database.  It finally all comes together, the postcards, the ships, the skippers… Once the project has all the data being inputted it should become a nice work for the next generations!

I’m not updating every day I do something on BBS, since it would become a boring weblog. But keep in mind, I’m working nearly every evening on it!

Tordino – Library and front light

25th November 2023 – I got some time to work in the library, building the entrance and starting with the ceiling. 


I also finished the front light. Somewhere in June I mounted an empty shell of a light. Now I put a LED bulb in the shell as anchor light. 

Tordino – BBS

9th November 2023 – There have been few updates lately. I’m mainly working on our project to make an inventory of the Belgian inland vessels. Nearly every evening I’m working between 2 and 4 hours on this project: developing the app and adding the data. Thankfully it is becoming winter, so I can’t do much on Tordino or the Stern.
