Wishing you all a Happy Friday night!
I've been busy all week working on orders but hopefully I'll have some new things listed in the shop next week. Maybe :) Also a few peeks at what I've been working on for myself too. I will tell you this, I am SO excited about the new project. I love working on new things. Finally building something with old ideas and gathering inspiration from all of the amazing miniature creators and crafters around the web. My brain goes into overwhelmed mode when I start to see so many beautiful things I'd love to make. Do you do that too? I want to build a roombox for this and one for that.. it never ends.
As for the roombox floors. After we moved we had a bit of an issue finding the same hard wood for the floor boards. Normally they're cut into strips and then those are glued down. Sometimes weighted and clamped, sometimes nailed to get them even. The wood we just found was splintering and it wasn't fun at all. Actually it was a nightmare. So I had to reevaluate for the current seven rooms. I used the Real Good Toys floor as a template and now we're cutting the floor boards directly into the oak or birch floor then staining or painting that. No splintering, no uneven floors etc. I think the end result is going to be better. I hope you will all love it from this point forward.
I got this photo from the RGT website. I think the floors will look great when they're complete. Fingers crossed. The two I did today turned out well and very smooth.
I'm not a drinker, but if I were... this would be my friday song. I do love Roger Miller and it always makes me smile.
