Hack Job

Last week I was crazy busy with illustration work, so I missed my self-imposed deadline of having the Lumbini print finished by Buddha's birthday (May 12). Meanwhile, whenever I've had a few minutes to spare, I've been slowly working on the border block. I don't like working in short bursts because I often make mistakes that way and, sure enough, the other day I accidentally cut deeply into part of the border with a u-gouge. I used Super Glue and some chunks of wood to make a very unprofessional-looking repair:


See??! Obviously this will never grace the pages of Fine Woodworking magazine, but I think I can make it print OK. (And maybe someday I can take a woodworking class.)
