What I Need is an Alien...
I can't say that I believe everything they say, but sometimes it makes me wonder how some of those thousand ton stones were put where they were....Surely not with some rope and a couple of logs to roll them on.
Anyway, I put it on sometimes if there is one that I haven't seen running whilst I am working.... I have a couple of dollhouses that I could sure use one of the aliens to help move.
I decided to start the door this morning. I cut it from basswood. Nine pieces of wood and other parts that will come later. I made the door itself from one piece. It is stronger that way than if I cut five strips and tried to hold them together with the other wood.
The hole for the door was 2 1/2" by 7". That made it easy to score. Five planks at 1/2" each.
I also cut the cross planks at 1/2" too. Then I cut the corner pieces with my Exacto. More accurate than the jigsaw.
I stained all of the pieces with Provincial Minwax. Now I have to wait patiently for them to dry....
I have to go watch some more Ancient Aliens build the world... The last one was about them helping Da Vinci send messages with the Mona Lisa and also helped him think up all of his inventions....Did you know that he was a Time traveler that went to the future to figure out how he was going to do things? My question is which came first? Did he invent them and the modern people stole his ideas or did he come to the future and steal their ideas and take them back....Chicken or egg?
I wonder if Daisy has ever run into him in her travels? Maybe she could ask...
While I watch, out of the corner of my eye, I am smoothing down the corners of the house and spackling. That should keep me busy for a few hours. Then I can go back and work on the door some more.
I have to find something else to watch....I feel like I am going around in circles with Da Vinci.
See you tomorrow.
