Topic London Skittles

Ten skittlers lined up for the "world" championship on Saturday 26th April 2014. After a preliminary round to select the quarter finalists, the knockout stage culminated in a final between Ellis Sabey-Tunnicliffe and Steve Barnes. Ellis just scraped his way into the quarter finals but then proceded to knock out top seed Steve Hutchinson. After defeating Paul Robinson in the semis, he ended the day a worthy runner up to Steve Barnes.

Each of the finalists scored an eight pin:

Topic The new frame

I've set the saw up to cut the apron

Well it worked and just needs to be planed up

A very deep cut is needed on the maple

The finished angle planed and roughly sanded

The mitres are cut and it looks good

Heavily bolted so it won't come apart

Ready to be fitted to the frame

Now it looks like a skittles frame

Topic The new frame

Biscuited together as well as the threaded rods for extra strength

That's both the base layers done

Finally got all the maple machine drilled
