Boxes Are In

With graduations, weddings, operations and plays going on we had a few students cancel this week but we still got a lot done. First and foremost we have to take a look at Cheryl's peacock window which is now 100% complete! I knew it was going to look great with some light behind it and I wasn't wrong. This is a large window measuring in at 44" x 25". We may see another version of this window soon...

With some spare time to kill while in class Cheryl decided to make a small beveled box. I think it took her about an hour and a half to start this and then take it home at the end of the day with her. These are great quick gifts that anyone would appreciate.

Speaking of boxes, Christine continued working on the box top that she started last week but got a bit sidetracked because she needed to start another box that she's making as a graduation gift. This is the rose and it's clear background that she started last week.

And this is the graduation box that she's working on. She still needs to grind the background and then add the border but the most of the hard work is done. I suspect we'll be working on the box bottom next week and have it set to go home then.

Gerald was back again this week and he got all his pieces wrapped. Next week he'll be bringing in the door this will be set in so we can make sure it fits. with only background left to cut this large window should actually be finished fairly quickly now. All the students for day classes have been eyeing this pattern up...

And lastly we have a look at Michael's window. She cut all the remaining background pieces and even got the zinc channel on it before class was finished. Next week she'll start soldering it so we should see this finished very soon now.

That wraps it up here for the first week of May. Look for some more boxes to be started here next week.
