between shifting full-sized bricks and mixing pug
(no cruelty to dogs involved)
As court cupboard top is far smaller side to side than in the painting, I was concerned about just how big an item it might take and therefore what needs to be made and how small. Shoving together what was stored away and holding up a badly crumpled piece of silk, I took a quick image to see if it’s ever going to get vaguely on the tracks I’d like it to be.
Well, lute’s are a bit big, but will ‘do’. Might get some of whatever I can make or buy towards the nautical and other scientific instruments on the top level and at least add a pair of map reading calipers on the bottom. Colouring is not too far off either, I reckon. Might just be able to make something out of this. Not good but can be made better.
Back to the bricks.
