And the Beat Goes On....
None of the beings(including Widget) in this photo had anything to do with the work done on the box, since you last saw it.
I whittled down the stairs a bit and then cut all of the veneers that will be the floor of the top space, the stairs and the pit. I simply saved the patterns for the steps and used those to cut the veneers.
That took a while, but I got it done, with my trusty #11 Exacto. Now I have to sand them and varnish before installing.
When I finish, the stucco will enclose everything and the edges will not be visible.
The piece that went on the top floor was about an inch too short lengthwise, but I have more. I do still have to cut that one. Actually, if I left it out, probably no one would ever know...But I would.
I kind of hate to cover all of the oak on the walls, but it has to be done. That's next. Then the bookshelves in the upper level.
While I do the work, the others went through the fabric closets....Oh No!
I can't bring myself to look at what they did.
I told them that I was going to use the leather that they were sitting on for the bench cushion. That is a given.
Then I let them have at it.
Zar is leaning towards the pile on the left, all of which I have used before...Some of my favorites.
Tessie has the reds on the right. I think she has the idea that I will choose those because the original room has a lot of red in it...The tie that she is holding is one of the ones that Jerry Garcia, of the Grateful Dead, designed. He was quite the artist. I like it, but I am still not going for the combination.
Spike is somewhere in the middle. He doesn't really care which I use, as long as he has a place to sleep.
You guessed it...I am on Spike's side about the sleeping accommodations.....But I am on Zar's side for fabric choice...He may just be in the lead for ownership...Sorry Tessie.
See you tomorrow.
