I went downstairs to ask Nigel if he had a piece of wood that measured 10 x 14 inches and some edging. I was successfully pleased as Nigel had exactly what I was looking for. I went upstairs to Martin’s workshop, so I could measure the edging and mark the exact amount I needed and what excess would need sawing off.
Once the excess was sawn off, I sanded down the edging I intended to use till it had a nice finish. I then assembled the edging onto the wooden board, so I would know what layout I wanted before using gorilla glue to put it in place.
Once the glue sets and it’s safe to maneuver it around, I will start working on drilling holes for the lights, before painting it.
