Progress in small steps

Glueing up the first frame

We have a kettle, and biscuits! Building frame is complete and most pieces cut out and cleaned – ready to be glued and fitted to the frame. The glueing will start tomorrow (Sunday) when an eager work party will yet again descend on the ice palace.

Trinity Academy have started making the wooden clamps. It is great to see S1 and S3 involved in this project and their assistance is greatly appreciated. Each clamp is being individually measured up and cut. Using a template is cheating and does not teach them how to transfer measurements from a drawing to plywood.
