Look Before You Leap!
See the window? I should have thought of that before I put the walls together!
It was a bit of a job getting it cut out. Then I had to decide how to do the trim.
It would have been a lot easier on a flat wall, not attached to the other one and the base.
I did get it done, but it's not the prettiest window that I have ever made. I just wanted to see if it could be done with string. It can.
I traced the inside of the window on a sheet of hard plastic.
Then I went and dug up some string from Walmart. It is #20 bamboo cord, sold in the jewelry making section, if you are interested.
I didn't really measure anything. I just did it on the fly. You know. Hold up the string next to the window and cut a chunk off. It worked! I did the string inside and out. Carefully matching the places that I put the string, so that it didn't peek out on the other side of the glass.
I now have all of the pieces cut for the walls of the kit and all of the pieces for the outside of the bookcase that I am going to put on the wall.
I will give measurements and directions when I start the actual building of the furniture.
Wish me luck. Here I go again. Flying by the seat of my pants. See you tomorrow.
