Remember how I glued everything ahead of time & that was gonna fix everything? HAHAHAHA nope.
So I figured while I was waiting for that to dry TWICE, because I couldn’t glue the broken-off point back on until I’d cut that curve & I couldn’t cut that curve until I’d glued the crack that was threatening to make it fall off, this is a very long sentence & I have lost track of my clauses.
ANYWAY I figured I’d get started on the shutter that’s going over said window. I did this by continuing to take apart the worktable I made last year & basically don’t use.
I managed to get enough pieces off & cut em to the right length, more or less. Voila: most of a shutter!
I even had time to sand a bunch of em. Not gonna put them together until the hinges show up, though, because I’m still waffling on how that part is gonna work. Or how I’m gonna latch it shut, or how I’m gonna prop it open … look, this is all happening as it goes.
Eventually the glue dried! I cut the last bits off, sanded it nice & smooth, took both pieces of side trim inside to paint them because it was windy & I was NO, & eventually took them back outside to put them in place.
& then I had at with the caulk, because have I mentioned I’m not terribly good at precision? It’s all good, it’ll dry clear & I’ll paint over it.
Next up, the rest of that shutter!

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.
