Reliquary Project: Cuts and Sanding

Back on Friday I cut out the side panel windows.

Telephone books are handy for drilling surfaces!

This was as far as I went before heading to Eugene. Ready for sanding.

Positive progress was made today. Spent the entire day  sanding down the window spaces. The downstairs is now covered with a fine dusting of walnut. Might have to bring out the air filter!

Nigel felt he had to be involved. Four times he plopped down on the work table, used his tail as a duster and added cat hair to the mix.  Glad I wasn’t gluing yet! Equally happy he was not out in the rain. Wet cat paws, wet hair and sawdust…

Nigel the helper

Here is the basic look w/ windows and the unfinished lid.

Gluing, lid and base construction tomorrow.

    1. Nigel is such a good supervisor. He even brings in live squeaky entertainment for all to enjoy!
      Squeak! Squeak!
