To Stain or Not to Stain....
Zar has a broken leg again.....So I had to do the furniture building. Stupid pipe cleaner bones don't last forever.
I resorted to Exacto knife and metal ruler for accuracy's sake. I always get a better fit that way. My saw and I are only friends when I am not trying for a tight fit. It just isn't as accurate.
After I cut all of the pieces out, I got out my emery boards and sanded everything.
I put double beading under the lip around the top too. Now the whole thing looks more unified. Zar has to decide whether he wants it stained or painted now.
I put it in the workshop to see how it looked. Strangely, Zar was well enough to hobble over and take a look.
Seriously though, I am going to have to stop work on the cupboard to do an emergency operation on Zar....I imagine, after being around Tessie as long as he has, he will want all new clothes too.
How unreasonable of him. I think that it is only going on a year since he last got new bones/clothes. He does way better than Tessie. Of course, he doesn't do half as much flying around on dragons and zapping from one place to another. That could be the difference.
Anyway, I am off to play doctor now.
See you tomorrow.
