Friday framing

 Friday March 26

 Found out Rob and Ann were at the club cleaning up again. Washroom is now clean, thanks

 Cliff, Glen and Rob retrieved the last of the 2 x 4 lumber from the trailer. 

 Don and Rick worked on benchwork, as we are running out of lumber, they were pieceing short pieces together.

 Glen, Rob, Donald and I finished the frames for the pensula, after laying it out on the floor. We think it is a good idea to use our 1/4 inch plywood on top of the benchwork to get the outside curve of the peninsula. This curve would be doubled using short 1 x 4s sandwiched between 2 curved plywood arcs.

The idea was hatched that we could add cleats, of scraps of wood, to the back of the benches and set the backdrops on the back of the benchwoek and attach it to the cleats, see picture below. This would raise the top of the backdrop above the 2 x 4 frame about 1 to 2 inches, no big deal.
