My cat Gus was hit by a car last night and died. Today I had to make a box for his final resting place. It’s not much on short notice, a simple pine box with some trim and plain hardware. Never thought I’d have such a difficult time of picking out hinges in the hardware store. I thought about staining it, but Gus would have been in too much of hurry for finish work. “Hurry up, I gotta go, dad.” He was always the live fast, die young kind of kitty. Nine lives wasn’t enough for his lifestyle. He’s chasing squirrels in heaven now, but at least his body is resting comfortably on some wood shavings, some catnip and his favorite towel to sleep on.
Anyway, I learned more about box making (this is my second ever) and figured out I really need a miter saw cause cutting trim on a table saw is a bit awkward. Thanks for looking.
