Base Boards

Miter Box

More cutting up of popsicle (lolly) sticks…these cuts needed to be quite exact, so we first tried using a quilting ruler and a craft knife. We got a nice clean angle but it was very tedious and made holes in our craft mat…Favourite photographer loaned us his miter box which worked quite well.

Arianell clamped the stick in place…

…and Vanilla had a go with the saw.

The girls helped as much as they could but then they got distracted by the off-cuts!

look!

Vanilla and Arianell made hearts…

Hearts!

…while the humans finished the cuts, glued the baseboards down, and used wood-filler on the gaps.

Lovely

We are glad of the help – it makes the construction project very entertaining, and the girls are learning lots!

  1. Those girls are just the sweetest! So lovely that they are interested in learning woodworking skills and helping out with this exciting project. I hope they come up with a plan for using those cute little wooden hearts,

    • Thank you so much – we love our very small projects, they take concentration but only for short periods…(although I am suprised again at how much mess a small project can engender!)

  2. So exciting to see your projects and they way you accomplish them. So nice that this is a whole family project…it makes it that much more special.
