Wednesday, February 1
Work day begins: 7:10 AM We’ve got the start of a beautiful day. Quite cool this morning but headed for a high in the mid 50s. A fire is going in the workshop heat stove, and I’ve checked e-mail. Today will be spent sanding. That’s pretty much it; just sanding. All of the parts we’ve made need to be sanded with 100 grit paper, then sanded again with 150 grit. It’s important to get most of our sanding done now because of all the tight spaces that will make it difficult to do after assembly. It’s also easier to knock the sharp edges off now. So that’s the mission for today. ‘Taint glamorous, but it’s got to be done and done well if are to get a good finish. Workshop closes: 4:45 PM Sanding is complete.
