First off this is how Loiosh spent his birthday. I gave thought to doing the same but I’m glad I didn’t, cos I finally got outside to work on Tyrava again for the first time since Estrella.
I am very glad that my sawzall still works even though I left it out in the rain in January. While it was still plugged in. I AM LUCKY, I KNOW.
I am HELLA out of practice & also my shoulder has been iffy lately so I only took apart half a pallet, but it was enough.
I’m also out of practice with remembering to take enough pictures! I took this one partway through, but I had to take boards off all the way up to the window to put in the denim insulation.
I am REALLY happy with the denim. I wanted the styrofoam for the floor because it’s waterproof, & it made sense to use the rest up on the front wall, but the denim insulates just about as well & is made from old jeans. I’ll use recycled stuff over new-made stuff any day, & the part where I don’t shed small bits of styrofoam all over the back yard every time I cut is nice too.
After probably working longer than was really a good idea (I’m REALLY out of practice & out of shape) I got the front wall done!
Well it’s. Not DONE done.
But I’m leaving the arches for LATER.
I had fun piecing wood together. I used different widths, lengths, thicknesses. It’s anything but smooth, but it looks cool.
The very last piece. I AM A REBEL.
I’d love to find a way to fill in some of the tiny gaps with, like, resin? With sparkly nail polish mixed in it? or something? Like they do with cutting boards & tables & stuff.. But the only way I can think of to do that involves either turning Tyrava so she’s face-down or sticking her in a kiln, so. I’ll think of something.
But it was a good day’s work, & I’m glad to be back at it.
This was posted originally to, a little over a week ago.
If you want to see these posts sooner, & not incidentally help support me & my cats in our travels & such, the way to do that is tofor as little as a buck a month.
I’d REALLY like that.
