Likes Watching the Glue Dry.....
I thought that you would like to see how I managed to get wood trim to bow and fit the curved lid of the one box.
As you can see, once they are all the way dry, they just automatically stay that way.
The test is, to see if you can get the cut piece to pretty much stay in place before painting.
Tessie immediately inspected and said it needs more gobbledygook, her word, not mine. I imagine she is right...It is Victorian, after all.
I dug around and found enough chair rail and other wood that I needed, and finished the half timbers in the dressing room.
Lettice approves of that, as is. Although, after a conference with Tessie, she said it needed more ageing.
I need to separate those two.
So far, it is a very boring box...Gotta work on that.
See you tomorrow.
