Kickstarter 24 hours leftFebruary 9th at roughly 7:15 PM US Pacific will be the end of the enrollment mayhem. Well, and the start of the manufacturing madness, of course! Some of you are asking me if you can join after the end date and the answer is, maybe?! We have 156 artists to date and I simply cannot fit anymore than 160 artists into 8 panels of the print. So if there are spots left, maybe, if there aren't, then, no go! I'm keeping a very close eye on the enrollment right now.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch...There are many tasks going on behind the scenes (even on Sundays) in preparation for the arrival of the wood panels. One challenge of building a large print, is seeing the whole thing at once, preferrably on a raised surface like an easel.
So I built a contraption, an easel of sorts. Here it is supporting the 4 blocks of the Fantastic Garden, our last project. See? It will work just fine!

current print will be double wide

Lightweight, sturdy easel support for our Peace PuzzleSo without further introduction, here are the photos of the construction process.
|Structural 3-ply cardboard and corner protectors|
|A bit (a lot) of wood glue|
|Some screws holding things together and weights to clamp down|
|Half support 5-foot wide, the L moulding is screwed and glued|
supports the bottom and top blocks
|Full support ready for blocks|
4 blocks along bottom, 4 along top
