My Wife has been utterly pwned for the last three days by a virulent head cold, but today she was able to get up and go out for lunch, so there is improvement. Happy husband! Tomorrow is a knitting-and-coffee session she has been looking forward to, and it looks like she will be able to make it.
The Box, Mark II, has been cut out and assembled (only one serious bad edge, where the saw insisted on pulling left), and I was able to reduce most of the ugly edges with just a little rasp work. For me, this is good. Tomorrow, we shall see if I can make the lid. This time for certain, as Bullwinkle would say.
We were supposed to spend today finishing up painting the troop shed (25x25 base, 15-foot peak), but no one else showed up, so I rolled paint until I ran out of the main color and called it a day's work.
