Off to Castine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Here are a few photos of all that is going with to Castine, I finished a tilt-top candlestand yesterday that I started a few weeks ago and I quickly built a roombox yesterday and this morning to display the furniture in.



Casey, this one is specially for you, the seats were needle pointed.



The fire screen is also finished.



The screen can slide up and down and stay in position.

American Fire Screen: Almost Done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Well, my fire screen is almost finished, it just needs a final sanding, stain and a finish. Two of the corners of the frame will only be glued once the stain and finish has been put on if you are wondering about the gap.



I am quite pleased that the frame can slide up and down and stay in position, I was worried that it would want to fall down to the bottom.



Well, the drawers what can I say, except that it was quite a job, the drawes are only 3/32" (2,4mm) high. I am really happy at how it turned out. Only 4 days left till I leave for Castine!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PS: I really need some photographing lessons!!!!
