Today's Project

Today's project is cutting the base and second floor for the coffee shop. 



I measured and marked my 1/4" plywood.  Then I read about jig saw blades to find out what size to use and started cutting.  I didn't notice that Dylan was asleep under my table!  I have no idea why he didn't move!?

Poor baby!

I can't cut a straight line with a jig saw to save my life! 


I remeasured.  Then I straightened my cuts with a utility knife.  Yes.  If you go slow and use new blades, you can cut thin plywood with a utility knife.  Where there is a will there is a way!


I dry fit the shop together.  So far, so good.  This is the new front door and the crown molding I'm using to attach the second floor.


Here is a peek at the apartment upstairs with one of the skylights.


I still have lots of work to do.  Hope you have a beautiful day!

Cute dog! He has a lot of patience.

I think you should buy him a face mask ;-), my dog is always close by but he wouldn't like being covered in dust!

His expression reminds me of the time my dalmation let the kids puts 4 kittens on his head and back.

The caption should say ,"Really?"
