95% done

Doors are just about done. Don't have hinges now but will put them on soon. I also still have to buy doorknobs. There goes my budget! Pics added to my SPINXVONGO page.

Getting there.

One more door to go and it's for certain that they are looking better and better as I go on. The question is, shall I redo my first ones? The front door will be done much later.

3 down - 4 to go


Getting easier to make the doors. It helps of course to have the right tools. Also, the frame and doors will be nothing without the eventual paint, shining, hinges and handles.

Well being stuck with somewhat uneven doors, I am going to have to create each door separately to ensure the frame is a good fit. Struggling without a place where I can get the correct wood, so I will make due with what I have until I can get to Gauteng. 7 doors here I come.

Thanx to Linky from Port Shepstone Framers for the matboard you gave me for my doors.

2012-2014 > My old blog

My first blog was created in 2012, but after Google took it over, I had no choice but to rename it. This was due to the fact that my old email doesn't exist anymore and Google will not allow me to log in to amend my blog, so I had no choice. Here are the postings of then. 



I promised pics of my music room, but due to an accident and subsequent hospitilasation, this will have to wait for the new year.

It is a nice feeling to know that there is always someone who will extend a favour to you, no matter what. Due to circumstances I have missed 3 great mini workshops wherein we were to build a music room and some gadgets to decorate it like a floor.

On Saturday we completed the Spinet and today ... Sunday .... Maryna gave up her day to help me build my musicroom. 2 classes in one day!

Thank you Maryna ... now I am up to date. And I am going to tackle the chandeliers soon.



Music Room - the final stage ... well almost!

My music room is almost done. I am busy with the parquet floor but I have the feeling that I will be making a few idea-changes about the floors. So far the lightning is up and running but somewhat dark, although there are up to 10 bulbs burning. 

My chandelier (I only had the one and never made it to making my own), is now hanging in front of the fireplace, but if you are a 12 inch human ... that will not matter! I hope to post photos soon ...

Well at last my spinet is completed. 

This little old fashioned piano sports a painting of the painter John Constable named "The White Horse".

I enjoyed making this little piano and thank Maryna for all her patience and help!
