I've had a very productive week of work, though my studio looks like a tornado has passed through.
The build is done, the furnishings are in, and I've got a good start on the landscaping. After the landscaping is done I've a few accessories to make so that the place looks lived in, but should have no problem finishing up in the seven days I've got left. The only thing I'm fretting about now is taking good pictures.
I learned some new things this week, and remembered some I'd fogotten...
No matter how hard I squeeze a bottle of glue nothing will come out with the cap still on.
Never try to take just a little bit off the sides of a door with a table saw.
It's easier to put acrylic in windows before the trim is glued on.
Don't sneeze while holding a paintbrush full of wood stain next to your building.
A curious cat looks funny with a blue nose.
For every one itty bitty nail I pound in I will lose six.
No matter how many pieces of paper I have in my stash I will never have one the right shade of green.
Best of all...if I leave a corner of my worktable cleaned off sandwiches will magically appear there.
