Sick of Staying Indoors...
I decided that I would work on the spiral staircase for a while this morning.
April and Amare are coming over this morning. That will mean a few hours with my favorite mini. So, I am not going to stay on here very long. I need to get a few things done before they show up.
I am trying out the foam core to see how big the stairs have to be.... Obviously larger than the pieces that I cut.
I started out, trying it without a platform at the top. I think that it is going to have to have a landing at the top.
Everything is multi use around here. The sticks holding the steps up are some of the weavers for my magazine baskets... Hey they are free and they work!
I just kept working and mumbled, "Never say never, Tessie."
Spike made it all the way to the top. But then, he is a lot lighter than Tessie. I doubt that she would even make it to the fourth step before the magazine rods would start collapsing.
I am going back now and try to do a bit more, before April and Amare arrive.
See you tomorrow.
