So, after several weeks of trying to make SLD’s Rocking Reindeer, I have given up on them entirely. Everything was going fine right up until gluing on the legs and rockers. I finally decided I was going to use toothpicks to stabilize the legs just like the antlers (after repeatedly having to glue the legs back on every time I touched them). I never did manage to get two rockers on a reindeer because the contact points are so small I just couldn’t get them to stay glued, even when taping them for clamping. Tonight, I was going to switch to an epoxy resin to glue them up and I dropped one and smashed it to smithereens. I guess I could try to make two rocking reindeer but right now it’s just too depressing to contemplate. I never thought glue would be my arch nemesis.
