A"door"ed

Progress on the jPod has been slow since summer & it is tempting to be depressed about that.  The only difference is that I am trying to keep up with teaching in addition to daily life.  Yet, I am happy to have a job even if it distracts me from the build.

A while back, Senior Management began the doors for the jPod.  Then life, for us, got really chaotic and the doors

rebuilt & insulated the bulkhead

where neglected.  Given the months that have passed since our move & my surgery, the original doors warped.  Recently, I have not focused on building parts for the jPod but rather disassembling the doors so I can flatten them out & fix them.  This has taken some time but I think it is almost there.  I have also reworked my original design to keep them more rigid.  Right now, I am waiting for the glue to dry on the internal skeleton on the right door.  If it works, as I hope, then I will do the left door.  However, I will not work on the left door until I am certain the right one is functional.  I am tired to delicately disassembling parts.

While working on the door process, I insulated the inside bulkhead between the galley & the cabin.  I have also purchased Helmsman’s finish that I hope to spray on the inside walls as a sealer & finish once it is above 60 degrees outside.
