I had to put the table with the saw, next to the desk. It needed a plug and I didn't want to use an extension cord to use it by the closet...The outlet is behind one of the three 7' tall bookcases...I couldn't tell you which one and I was not about to start unloading all three of them to find out the answer...
I think that this arrangement will work out just fine....Please ignore the messy place, down in the left bottom corner of the photo...That's where the pile starts from the move.
I got tired of messing around with furniture....It's heavy. Even with sliders.
So, I went to work on the foundation for the cottage. I measured the cottage and added a few inches on all sides. Then I cut out a piece of luan 1/8" plywood.
Remember the wood strips that I bought a couple of weeks ago? I used the half inch square for bracing. This house is very light and doesn't need a lot. I mitered the corners and then ran a strip down the center.
I used white glue and small brads to put it together.
I tried it and it fits. I am considering putting the cottage at an angle on the foundation.
That might give it a little more interest than straight on.
After seeing this photo, I think that I need to get out the paints and do some more on the stone work.
The garden bench is just a try out for size.
It's 9:17 AM and I am tuckered out. We got up at 4:30 or so. Walter plays golf early, while it is cool. His group is usually one of the first to tee off when the sun comes up.
I still have to put the bedroom back together and still more to do in the workroom...
I am washing clothes with one hand and cleaning with the other. Wish me luck!
See you tomorrow.
