It also took extra time to add the bottles and a glass plate, though they’ll make the finished bench look really beautiful. I think the bench was only one batch away from completion, and I hope they’ll finish it today. I was a little disappointed not to see it done yesterday, but I think there’s a certain magic to Dave and Annelies finishing it just the two of them, or with the kids. Maybe I’ll drag my tired body back over to photograph the final bench later this afternoon.
And of course there’s always the plaster to put on in a few weeks!
