Drew up all the plans, spent a LOT of time trying to work out measurements and drew out all the shapes to cut out in MDF wood over this weekend.
then my partner Graham helped me cut out some of the pieces today – I pick up a saw, make a pathetic attempt at cutting in a straight line, and he gets all alpha male and takes the saw away and cuts the pieces – hooray!
unfortunately for me, I measured half of the pieces wrongly!!! I had to allow 6mm for the depth of the wood, so the side pieces had to be cut 6mm shorter. I’m sat there subtracting 6 from all the sides, and I subtracted CENTIMETRES not millimetres DUHHHHHH
so need to get some more wood on Tuesday because all the sides are too small. Anyone who knows me will not be surprised – numbers are NOT my strong point.
