Raise High the Roofbeam...

I cut my first hole with my Dremel Trio.  I have had it for quite a while, but didn't use it because I couldn't find the little wrench that goes with it...

I can't say that it's the best hole I ever cut, but it was fun trying and the edges will be covered anyway...

We now have a skylight in the roof.  I found the cover of the box that my iPad came in.  Perfect size!

I also found another treasure at Goodwill yesterday.

It's a huge Masonite drawing board. 

At first I tried getting the clips off with a pair of pliers.  Didn't work. 

What to do?  Move the cat and cut the end off of the board... or maybe it would be better to leave the cat there and move the board...

Anyway, I think that the size of the board will be just fine if I cut the edge with the clips off.

I will have a couple of inches on each side for landscaping.  That's all I need.

OK.  Next job is cutting.  I think that I had better get old Mr. Dremel out for that job.  I want a straight line.

Back to work.  See you tomorrow!

You could drill out the rivets that hold on the clips instead of cutting the board. If I was around I would do it for you. Choose a drill bit that is barely larger than the diameter of the rivet shaft as it does through the board. Drill from the head end of the rivet to pop it off then knock the rivet shaft on through the board.

One of my problems was, I couldn't locate my drill! Maybe my workroom needs a slight cleaning again?

Hi Casey! I had to catch up on your progress thus far and had a look at the beginnings of the making of the trees and what a Fabulous Result!!!! Even with it still in these early stages, you can see that it is going to be Sensational! :D And the skylight is another Winner! What a creative mind you have which 100% explains the messy workroom! :))
