I couldn’t find the wood that I was looking for in the attic, so I thought the one sure way to make it turn up was to buy some more.
The Jelutong that I use for the stage/base of the theatre has always come from Borecraft Miniatures.
Among other things, they supply all sorts of turned items, like table legs, as well as miniature mouldings and strip wood of various types.
All their things are of reliable high quality – and on top of that they are such nice, sensible, helpful people – and so I went straight to my saved page of their online shop and placed an order.
It was only after I had placed the order, that I thought to look at their home page and there I learned that Alan Borwell had died at the beginning of the year.
He will be a very great loss and so will Borecraft Miniatures as a whole.
I have saved some of their website pages here as a memorial.
