This is largely due to the fact that we're teaching in Indiana on the weekend, and we needed to be at a certain point before we can leave.
The trimming and clean-up, and edge sanding took a REALLY long time! One of the unsung heroes on this has been little Jody! She has sanded, and cleaned up every single tube, bracket, pipe, holder and cabinet involved in these jobs. We certainly wouldn't be where we are without her behind the scenes efforts!
I needed 2 holes, perfectly aligned, to mate to the brackets to the main support tubes. These will eventually hold up the whole slide.
And just for something to do, we rolled a styrofoam ball down the top half! John suggested a donut, but that might make it hard to paint after!
On a side note...........
