Booster Cover 2.2 - the second leg.....

Sanded the wood filler, all over the Booster Cover. And then using my Coping saw, I cut out the centre part of the 'Dog House'. I then bonded it onto the Booster Cover using P40 resin. Once this is dried, I'll file/sand it all smooth and then apply wood filler and then repeat.

Marked and cut out the four vertical grooves at the bottom. Drilled and screwed, from behind, the top section. I then marked the curves and using a coping saw, cut the curve out. I then covered the lot in wood filler & have started sanding......all over. lol.

Booster Cover 2.1 - the second leg.....


Cut the other angle, then marked & cut out the centre section.
Filed surfaces, applied wood filler where needed. A knot in the wood needs seeing to!
Then started on marking & cutting to size the 'Dog House' piece.

Booster Cover 2.0 - the second leg.....


Haven't had much time at home to work on R5 & until I get a chance to cut out the pieces for the second main leg, I'm a bit stuck there too. So thought I'd start on the Booster Cover, as this is something I can do in work on my lunchtime.

Started on cutting the booster cover to size. The top sloped section is a separate piece of wood. This will have the slots added later. As I did on the other Booster Cover, I'll 'build' this up with P40 resin and box off the slots. Next, I cut the sloped side faces.
