This week I pulled the 'pidgeon' hole unit kit out of my box of unmade kits to work on.
Because I needed to do a 'quick and dirty' build so I could have it finished to take photos before I lost the light, I decided to do a little experiment. I figured since the kit only cost $4 in the first place, I could afford to potentially mess it up completely...
Could I cover it with printed paper using my Xyron sticker machine? There was only one way to find out.
But first, my lovely assistant and I had to decide which way round I was going to make it.
(That's massively tall, so horizontal it is.)
I decided on a paper that would work with the burned edges of the wood bits
and began cutting and stickering. (So far, so good.)
And we have success!*
This is a technique I definitely want to use again in the future...
(*Actually, it's only blog finished. I couldn't be bothered faffing around gluing it together then waiting for the glue to dry so the end and top bits are just balanced there...)
