This thing is getting covered in more and more layers of masking tape. It won’t do.

So I’ve decided to take it apart, gradually in order to glue the inner/outer skins and the legs together.

Again a gradual process, using viscous Cyanoacrylate.

Until all sides were complete

I minimally taped these together and took apart the top, perching the pieces on the whole.

and I’ve decided to try repairing the central piece of the lid by splicing on a new bit

That really is all for today

Be seeing you.

You have more patience than I. Nice work. This box is going to be very nice when completed.

Keep putting one foot in front of the other and sooner or later you will arrive. I’m in the middle of a long one myself. Patience is definitely a virtue and fortunately, you have it.

Patience most of the time, yes, but when it goes the air turns a very deep shade of blue.

It is coming along nicely. Sometimes set backs are our best teachers. It is smart to walk away for a while when you are fatigued. It is going to be awesome!

What about veneer tape rather than masking tape? Would that work for you? Certainly easier to remove.

Keep up the great work.

I ran out of veneer tape, Kate. Thank you for reminding me to order some more though.
