100 Days: Porch Progress
Porch progress. I cut out another layer of the porch from 1/8" plywood using a utility knife (lower right).
I had a thrill when I discovered the joys of hole bits for my power drill. I had been wondering how the heck I was going to make the holes in this for the pole supports.
I screwed cross pieces through both top layers to secure it all together and then filled in any gaps with stainable wood glue, wiping away excess with damp towel (lower left).
Once dry, I darkened the whole thing with dilute cocoa brown fabric dye.
