Default carly in the shop 2

so last week CG and i were sitting on the bed browsing the doll sites and i said i'm bored no one is posting any stories or nice pictures. CG said i'm bored also, he rumaged around in the plans he printed out from a CD he has and found a good project to make. he told me i could help but since we were working with metal i could only be in charge of the plans and hardware (nuts,bolts and washers). i put on my coveralls and we went to the basement shop to start working.



i have the plans so i can tell CG were to drill the holes and what size they are, after he cuts the pieces up and sands them smooth.



i have all the small parts ready also.



it took a few days to cut all the pieces and sand them smooth now we need to epoxy the bolts in place so i put on some gloves to mix the epoxy.

Default part two

i'm ready to mix the glue



the bolts are all glued now we need to wait an hour for the glue to set.



they are all assembled.



from left to right we made a set of dividers, a compass, outside calipers and inside calipers.



they look golden in the picture but are made of steel must be the lighting, wonder what we will do next time.

They look really nice Carly, and you are lucky Girl to have a Guy who can put his hands to most jobs and make things.

Yes even I do know what they are for

Maybe they are for the next job your Guy has in mind ?
Holly

Oh and thank you for showing the pics here on the site
