I am now firmly established in my new home. I have repaired, put up shelving, painted, bought rugs, adjusted furniture, set up my computer system, wired speakers, and established a working space in my garage to drill all my innumerable holes.
You may remember the design I had planned for my next project. Well, this is how
it gets printed out and used as a template to drill the plastic. Since my printer can only print paper 13″ wide, for a pattern 24″ square I have to print each of the 4 corners and then tape them all together. I add the rough red lines and orientation arrows to make sure they match up correctly. I am, after all, only printing out a lot of dots.
The template is taped onto the protective paper around the plexiglass with double sided tape. Then I drill through the dots.
I would send you a shot of my doing that, except no one was there to take the photo.
So here is a shot of the drilled plexiglass. I would have taped in the screws and started picking out the colors, except I did not have enough 3″ screws, so I am waiting for a delivery and you will have to wait for more photos.
I wish you all a truly lovely holiday season, a snowy white one if you are in those areas of the world, but definitely peaceful in this turbulent time.
