After seven weeks of piles of key work, this afternoon I could finally say that there are no keys in the shop. And that's for the duration of a holiday weekend! We shipped off a set late today and there are no more expected until mid-week. It does seem a bit odd. The new sets coming next week include a rebushing, a keytop job and a major key wood rebuilding/tops and fronts/ bushings/re-leading.
So I just had to keep busy with something!
Here you see the test assembly for the vacation Bible school 'mini' float.
The blue canvas will be the backdrop for a jungle scene surround. The second shot shows the interior (back panel not installed). I'll take more pictures as the scenery is completed. And of course a photo of the finished product.
(Oh...and we've got the neighbor's barking dog problem again. Nice weather, windows open, dog has been barking since before 7 p.m. and it's now almost 9:30 p.m. I've called the dog officer 3 times in the last couple of weeks. I'm going to call again tonight...or in the morning. The neighbors aren't home. Whenever they aren't home the dog barks. Last Friday it didn't quit until they arrived home at 10:15 p.m. - from 4 in the afternoon!)
