Still fiddling around with the coving but my hands are all of a do-dah this week (been eating too much carbohydrate – it always fills my joints with gleck) so not so good at holding wood or knives at the moment. Used it as an excuse to try to figure out a work-around using some other material than the ¼ round wooden coving I bought in for the occasion.
So far I’ve looked at:
- the inner workings ie the foam bit of dense foamboard – which might work quite well but there’s a lot of dusty sanding necessary
- placing various other easier to work mouldings either singly or in combo
- and not having a coving of any type at all.
After those I’ve gone back to the troubles with the wooden coving and am giving it another go but a very little bit at a time 😉
Meanwhile I took receipt of a very pretty Art Deco button today which I have in mind to use as a mirror either in a bedroom or at the foot of the stairs.
