... and then when you can't find timber that's the height you need for your base, find something a little too low and glue MDF on top. Clamp tight, leave overnight and presto!
Hrm, but MDF should be cut outside, and it's pouring out there. Will have to cut tomorrow. Damn. No printing tonight.
But wait! My delightful fiancee just suggested using two sheets of thick card that we've got lying around for tonight. This way, I can actually print something, which is fantastic because I'm getting sick of not being about to print anything.
So tonight, dodgy job that might work. Tomorrow, make the real deal. I've got enough to make 6 wood blocks, 185 x 110mm. Is this finally the last hurdle conquered??
