Tessie's Little Helper.....
I drew up plans for an open cupboard for Zar to use in the woodworking shop, downstairs.
By the way, if you look closely, you will see that I left out the over all height measurement. It is 6 1/2" tall. You can also count squares. Each is a quarter inch.
You can easily cut this out of a 3/32" slab of lumber and have lots left over.
I butted all of the pieces against one another. That way there is not much waste in the wood.
That was the dry fitting. I did need to do a bit of sanding here and there.
I helped with the gluing and clamping. There were so many things to hold together at once that we had to resort to extra clamps.
Right now they are fighting over who will get the piece. Tessie wants it to put unspecified "stuff" in for the weaving studio. Zar wants it for unspecified other "stuff" in the woodworking shop...
This could go on for hours. I am not getting in the middle. Neither is Widget. We are both tiptoeing away quietly...We are going to fight over what is for lunch instead.
He wants lobster, I want a Rubin from Arby's.
I am bigger than he is! I win! Rubin it is, as soon as Walter gets home with it.
Hopefully the argument in the other room, that is getting louder by the minute, won't come to blows.
See you tomorrow.
