Dollhouse Flooring

I'm working on my new hardwood floors in the living room. I'm using skinny sticks. Here you see the sticks acclimating to the room. They just may have to acclimate for a while longer.

The sticks have rounded ends that need to be cut off. So far I've done about 70. Here's what my finger looks like now. OUCH! I also have a blister on my thumb from using the scissors.

I don't know who will give out first, me or the scissors? I've got about 80 more to cut.

Does this qualify as an excuse to purchase a Micro Mark saw? I think so.

Think I'll go try dipping some candles or something... Thanks Katie at Katie's Clay Corner!

Sweet Dreams, Kathi

Kathi you really need to buy an 'Easy Cutter' they're not that expensive, don't know where you buy one from where you live maybe someone else will be able to tell you. It will make your mini life so much easier!

I use cutters as well and a small saw. It does not completely prevents fom blister and bruises but it helps a lot Hugs Rosanna

Definitely qualities as an excuse! At least to get one of those MiniChopper II's if not a saw.

AWWWWWW! Look at your dented finger! Oh my goodness. Well, if it's any consolation, your flooring looks fantastic so far! Take your time with the rest. Good things take time and patience.
