Woodworking needs to be done outside, it’s too messy to do indoors.
There are three things that limit my woodworking in the English winter:
- Cold: It’s no fun working outside in the cold, and this is a hobby
- Rain: Everything gets wet, even the wood
- Wind: The wind blows the sawdust about, and you end up covered in it
Luckily there were a couple of good days this week and I was able to move forward with this baseboard.
An additional layer of plywood has been added to the main baseboard, with a ‘cut away’ to create raised and lower ground. Plus I’ve built a baseboard for the fiddle yard.
I plan to use cassettes for the fiddle yard. I may even make one from this off cut of ply.
The height of the cassettes will align nicely with the new, raised areas on the main baseboard.
This feels like progress because I can start laying the track now.
Hmmm.. I need to pluck up my courage before I start that job!
