I am up to the opening in the front of the chair and a few lines of weaving above...
I decided to do some of this every day and work on other things for Daisy's house at the same time. That is a defense mechanism against boredom...
The solution? Since she is a world traveler, I thought that a Japanese Tansu chest would work well.
A tansu is used like stairs in old Japanese homes. It served a dual purpose. storage and stairs in one piece of furniture. Here, it will just be for storage.
First I cut a piece of graph paper in the required size. Tessie stuck it against the wall and Spike approved...
It is a staircase to nowhere in this instance. I just needed a shape that would fit in the area.
Here's a finished drawing of what I plan to do. It is, as always, subject to change as I build, the it is a good starting point.
Daisy lives out of a suitcase when traveling. I am not sure how that works in time travel, but I don't think that she can take a lot of stuff with her.
At least this will give her a place to put things.
I have to move it away from the door. I didn't want to cover up all of the pargeting around the door.
Anyway, That's the latest.
I haven't heard from Daisy. I am sure that I will if she doesn't like the idea. She always seems to know what is happening here. I think that she pops in and out when it is convenient and the house is unoccupied.
I have to go hunt down some wood to make the tansu now. Maybe walnut? I'm not sure what I have in the drawer... Decisions, decisions, decisions.
See you tomorrow.
