I’m SO happy to be working on projects again, but there’s an odd process to finding my “voice” again since I can’t hold anything -normally- . Example—
I just needed to renew my passport. A lot of paperwork to fill out and it’s really tough to write—my mother obliged me, I just needed to sign my name. But my signature LOOKS LIKE A FORGERY. An extra form needed to be sent to explain why it IS legit.
but I find it’s like trying to work without the right tools. You might be able to do it, but it’s w·a·y harder!
So I’ll be working my way back to the “big ideas.”
I thought I’d tackle framing out the new kitchen chalkboard. Ordinarily the simplest of jobs. Now an awkward task AND keep safe!
◊ I wanted to router a picture frame profile to the inside, and just soften/round over the outside edge.
◊ I also needed to run the boards through the table saw creating a thin rabbet enough to lay over the chalk board, with the rest to lay flat on the wall.
Hopefully this helps make sense of things—
~I pre-primed and it’s up—now I just need to lightly sand, putty any little gaps, then paint.
What’s next is to hang coved molding across the top for that extra finish, and create a chair rail for the bottom (over the brick). And THAT will actually tie into another project to come.
