Past two weeks I’ve been busy making the window frames and the doors for the Atelier. I’m almost finished, I have to make the last half of the door. Obviously this is when I find the crooked thing in the house. It could have been the something on the wall in the back, but it has to be something in front, in plain sight. The grove and the door frame is a full centimeter crooked.  Well I don’t know how yet but I’m going to have to deal with it, or it will be one drafty door. Here is how the smallest window looks. Note that the rope is not to hang myself, my woodworking place doubles as bike repair shop. It is kind of annoying to repair a ball bearing in 2 cm of sawdust.

My son got inspired to embark  his own woodworking project. He stole the iron saw from my dad while he was putting the electrics in the Atelier. He was super concentrated and sawing surprisingly controlled. This is kept him occupied for a while, until frustration kicked in about the lack of progress.

I got inspired too, by these guys. I don’t know if the bandana makes you a better woodworker but it keeps the sweat from running into your eyes and the sun from burning my neck even more.

I also managed to make new horses as support for putting the window frames together. I needed someting straight and strong. Later they’ll be used as table for working, and as a display table when Mariana goes to a market.
