Chapter 80 - The Tatami for the Left Side Second Floor Porch, Two Sliding Windows for the Right Porch, a Small Table
Everything in this chapter I had already constructed in the past so I knew it would be fairly quick, or so I thought.
I put the windows together and the small table. Then I painted all the parts that required painting and then varnished the table for a slight shine.
The next part was putting the windows into the porch but I realized that I had mounted the shōji windows backwards and if I now put in these windows, I wasn’t going to be able to finish the shōji properly. Since the last two shōji are in the next chapter, it really doesn’t set me back much. So I put the “glass” into the windows and set them aside till the next chapter where they will be installed.
my previous blog posting that gave a pretty detailed explanation.
