Remember Castle Play Structure? While Barbara and crew were in Southampton last week installing the Long Island Treehouse, the guys were back at the shop in South San Francisco building this large, intricate Castle Play Structure.
The Clubhouse with Big Deck and 9′ long Bridge (left side) were almost finished last week . This week we will build, carve and stain the smaller Princess Tower (right side).
Once the “fit” is confirmed, the guys take the panels apart and bring them back out to the grinding dock.
Where Armando carves heart cut-outs and scallop trim around the doors & windows, while Aubrey finishes up grinding the floors smooth.
Each panel weighs about 80 lbs so teamwork is required.
One panel carved and ready for staining – 3 more panels to go!
Staining bay is already stuffed with parts from the Clubhouse, deck and bridge.
Rudi starts re-arranging the finished pieces to make room for the Princess Tower panels and parts.
Meanwhile, back in the staining bay, Rudi is almost out of color. He’ll take inventory and then start mixing a new batch of color from scratch.
Ember finishes up the under-belly of the 9′ long bridge. Even the undersides have to look good.
Time to start final detailing soon.
