Today in the Shop

Today in the Shop: I finished the long process of building a form for a new, larger dog pod.  First, I meticulously build a framework that can withstand tremendous external pressure.  Then, I apply the first layer of skin and load the whole thing into the vacuum bag.  There are some tense moments as the vacuum is applied and I wait to see if it can withstand the force of the atmosphere.  Then, it sits in the press for several hours while the glue cures.  I will apply two layers of plywood skin before the form is ready to press its first new pod.
