Are we building a house, or is this really just an excuse for getting an education? Both of us are really enjoying learning carpentry skills from Mike Roberts.
Starting to put the wood cladding inside the cabin. Mike Roberts taught me to use a Router and I am completely taken with this new skill. Needed to carve out a notch from the inside of the board (right most in picture) so that the board could be placed flat while still leaving room for the lead, or rather ‘no lead’ around the window.
The red arrow is pointing to the routed out bit that I did. I DID THAT!!!! All on my own! The blue arrow is the lead, or rather ‘no lead’ that needs covering. OK, it is a bit too long, but BEAUTIFULLY EXECUTED!
This one is the routed edge I did on Sunday. First one, yes it does the job, but it’s not quite as elegant, Call it a bit of practice….
Rightmost board not nailed in place yet, but the cabin is looking great.
