Inch by Inch, Step by Step....
Then I drilled two holes in each step at the wide edge and painted them black.
I have glued the tree in place. Unfortunately, that's the only way I can be sure that the steps are in the correct position as I work.
Right now, they cover more area than the base for the tree. I plan to smooth that out to a rolling hill shape, instead of a lump.
She did offer to hold the clamp...After everything was partially dry.
I may just tell her to stand there and hold it for an hour or two... Just to keep her out of my hair.
I have to wait until the tree is thoroughly dry before I start gluing the rest of the steps in place.
Hey! With her out of the way, I could probably run into town and get supplies and she would never know I was gone. Especially if I turn the TV to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, before I go. That should keep her happy for a couple of hours. I might even let her have her director's chair to sit in, whilst she holds the clamp...
Anyway, I hope to see you tomorrow with a whole, completed staircase...Wish me luck!
See you tomorrow.
