Today progress was made! The casement finally fits the sculpture. This took many hours of increasing the interior dimensions to squeeze the piece in. Lots of sanding & chisel work. Probably would have been easier if I had just gone out and purchased new wood. I also tested the lighting just for fun. Ahh, it’s finally coming together! Don’t forget that it will be up for auction at The Arts Center in Corvallis.
and now lighted!
I actually don’t have the lights afixed to the interior as of yet. Two strips of wood have been cut and stained for aiding the lights. A large ugly hole has been cut in the casement bottom. Time to pull out the router to clean things up. That will be tomorrow. Enough for today’s endeavors.
