For the past week I have been working on building a tea cart for the play Running in the Red from scratch. All I started with were a picture and a set of the fancy showy 15 inch wheels. Thats all. So in the last week I have gone from nothing to something. I figured that in total I have 24+ hours into this cart and I am now finished constructing it for the most part. I have to put a handle on it yet and of course paint the thing. It has two or three different shades of blue intermingled with brown, black, bare wood, green, and tan. Those are the only ones I can think of off the top of my head. Anywho I am going to borrow Matt's digital camera Tuesday and get some pictures of my master piece. The craziest thing about this cart is that it has to withstand people riding in it and toted on it. Yes this all has to be done on a 32 inch high by 21 in. wide by 36 in. long cart. That is why it is made up of 3/4 inch plywood, 6 1x1 spindles, 3 4inch heavy duty casters, 2 2inch casters, and tons of 1x4 white pine. So until tomorrow and pictures use your imagination. Oh as a side note, I have yet to weigh it but I am guessing it will be between 30 and 50 pounds.

Dude thats cool man! How do you get involved with the set building and stuff? That's something I've done before and would be interested in doing.
