Not Dry Yet...

 I feel like I spend a LOT of time waiting for glue to dry.

I cut out all of the pieces for the toilet and sink between yesterday and this morning.  I channeled out the places where I wanted the false doors to be. 

I forgot the shelf in the sink.  I had better do that before everything dries!

These were much rougher to put together than the shelving unit.  That had gentile curves.  These did not.  Much more difficult to get them to stay in place...

Now that they are glued and taped, they aren't going anywhere for 24 hours.

So... To fill in the time, I am working on the lace collar.  I have almost finished the cording thread around the edges of each leaf and flower.

I am hoping to get that part finished today.  If I do, then I can go back to the fun part.  The actual lace.

I am going back now and try to finish the cording..

Please excuse me for now.  I will see you tomorrow.

You make such lovely things. You have what the women in my family call magic, blessed hands.

And a strong, luminous spirit. Thank you for sharing them with us, Casey.

You make such interesting items Casey
I was wondering what timber you use to make your furniture I need to make a few pieces for my Tudor and not sure what is the best

Demi, I used plain old basswood for these. They will be painted. When I carve beds and such, I use walnut or cherry most of the time.
