Meanwhile the hinges it was decided, would be sliced thinner on a table saw! I cringed at the thought and prayed nobody lost any digits in the process. Surely for safety sake some sort of jig would be used. The other tricky part was cutting the vinyl faux stone ‘skin’ to fit around the curves of the arch. The vinyl had a tendency to want to crack and therefore the volunteers were instructed to take their time and not rush things. I mentioned that if any cracks should occur an exterior caulk in charcoal grey tones would hide any problems. That stone veneer is expensive and the beautiful effect was evident when I dropped by the construction site on my way home from work a few days later. There was a tarp covering the front to protect the stain from UV rays until varnish could be applied. But the doors were on! I couldn't resist a peek!
Many thanks to Ron Noteworthy for assembling us all. It was an honour to be part of such a creative team and a really fun project. The results are a complete success in my view.
I can’t wait to hear what the organizers think! This is going to make a souvenir shop you won't want to miss visiting! Be sure to come see the plays during the festival and stop by the souvenir shop for a memento of your visit to Prescott!
