Can I tell you how annoying it was to cut 3/4″ thick foam with a hobby knife? Its not as horrible as hand sanding, but it was pretty obnoxious.
My cuts are not clean or perfectly square because it was all done by hand. Of course, it wasn’t until AFTER I cut everything out that I found out that there was such a thing as hot knives made specifically to cut foam, quickly, and easily, without the pain.
Other than that, the whole process was fairly strait forward; measure, cut, tape together, and step back to see how it looks. The gallery below will show you the plexiglas (which looks “frosted” because it still has the protective film on) and a mini chair for scale.
I will be priming it all with a coat of paint before gluing the pieces together. And I also plan on flooring and wall papering as I build up (my first time to do this, ever), so this should be interesting.
On a side note. I need to finish up the Coventry Cottage ASAP, because it needs to be ready to be sold during this holiday season!
