Yesterday, in the afternoon, I tackled cutting the lumber for a small floating shelf. I did this one all on my own (except for ripping the 8' piece cuz I needed two people for that!)
and because I had already made one with this plan,
it went much smoother this time. (and quicker!)
I have my notes-much like I make when I am 'building' a quilt!
I put a cheat sheet right on the table saw!
Just like I use when I use the rotary cutter!
And then cut my pieces.
I am still using Bill's reclaimed lumber so the next step
is an hour of sanding which I will tackle today.
The shelf box is glued and nailed already--
but the inner frame support is only glued and today it will be dry enough to predrill to screw together.
The shelf I made last week is completed-stained,
buffed and polished!
Later this week it will be screwed to the wall in the church kitchen and ready for use! I hope to have at least one more small one made to be hung also! NO, I am not going into business-
this is definitely a one-off job!
When I got home from quilting group-I tossed the quilt down and headed for the rest room; when I got back, Miss Lena was in full ownership! (see, I did finish the binding!)
But what she really wanted,
was some of this!
She is totally addicted to being brushed!
She practically bowls me over when I head to the studio
so she can get there and beg for a good brushing! lol
I hope you are smiling now!
