Tomorrow we head over to our friends' place to have cushion covers made:) The timing is just right as I made good progress on the dining/sleeping area today. The Lagun table top was completed a couple of weeks ago and this week I made the extension top if there are more than just Angela and I eating. I had previously made some aluminum pieces for the key lock on the extension leg base but because the flooring vinyl we bought is so thick, those aluminum pieces wouldn't work. I ended up making a new one out of 3/16th steel which perfectly matches the vinyl plank we have.
Calvin here - after spending almost 33 years in education as a high school teacher, elementary teacher, and elementary administrator, it was time to retire! I did so happily and with no regrets; it was a terrific and fulfilling career. I do enjoy building projects as the design and building process is very therapeutic and you see a completed functional product in the end. Now to combine the build with another of Angela's and my passions - travel - is something we're really looking forward to.
