A Modest Proposal – Parts 3.0

Dan’s plan

“Somebody on the night shift changed it over to a sink counter and galley cabinet with a tall hanging locker. I have no idea what might be out there, when I go back after the lunch break. Those elves get pretty creative, when nobody is watching.”

A Modest Proposal – Part 3.0

 

Frankenmockups.

Yesterday, there was gonna’ be a wood stove and galley in the back-right corner.

And, then, poof.

Somebody on the night shift changed it over to a sink counter and galley cabinet with a tall hanging locker. I have no idea what might be out there, when I go back after the lunch break. Those elves get pretty creative, when nobody is watching.

Now, that’s different. Those guys have some pretty off-the-wall notions, some times. I think the plan is to try covering the outsideterior surfaces with Home Depot cotton drop-cloth material set in Titebond II. Then, that gets painted over in some sort of Lucasvarnish (exterior latex.)

This girl will have to spend her days outside in whatever Mother Nature has to offer. Including snow loading and rain and even sunshine. The Maintenance Department has been on my case about all that fussy varnished softwood and tropical hardwood that I normally festoon these frankenbots with. Maybe those guys will finally be happy about this approach. These tryfer patterns are just to let the visual learners in the crowd see what it is that we’re imagineering on at the current nanosecond. That would be me. What ever it turns out to be, will need to be manufactured on a band saw and shaped with a spindle sander and a progression of disc and belt sanders. Can’t get toooooooo fussy.

Now, I gotta’ check the Planning Department message board, and see what might be next. I, certainly, never know.

  1. Dan, the painter’s canvas drop cloth on my “sleeper shell” teardrop trailer is working fine. Its held in place using West System 105/206 epoxy, with house paint covering. It’s been on for two years. I layed down a coating of eloxy, layed on and smoothed the canvas. When tacky, applied a cover coat of epoxy. The paint was put over the cured epoxy. This isn’t a great test because the teardrop spends most of the time in a shed.
