Ha, I knew it - it shows! I've done a little set design myself, although my profession and degrees are (mostly) in illustration. Kindred soul here.Thank you! I was a theater major once upon a time and learned the basics of modeling for a set design class. I always loved it and was happy for the excuse to break out the foam core and exacto knives again!!
While I am fairly handy with actual construction, I would be intimidated by all the arcs you guys are going to have to cut. I'll be following with interest.This exercise was as much about figuring out my construction methods as much as making something aesthetically pleasing - this is going to be a woodworking project that really stretches me and my husband. I found the model to be extremely helpful to work through construction details from framing to how the heck to hinge that hidden egg door in a round frame.
