Under the Dome...
I drilled pilot holes by using consecutively larger drill bits. That wood was tough.
Then I decided that the hole needed to be bigger. Results? The drilling of three more holes.
I started with my keyhole saw and after about a half inch, I realized that it would take until sometime tomorrow, if I kept going with that.
It didn't take long at all with that. Sawdust everywhere!
Tessie inspected the hole and approved of the larger opening.
I simply used my thick gesso as a glue and a sealer.
I cut the fabric on the bias, so that it would stretch and went to work.
I trimmed each piece as I went
Keep in mind that the edges will have a thick strip along the opening and the bottom edge, so the thin or thickness of the wall of the dome won't show.
Now we are having fun. Back to work.
See you tomorrow.
