Just finished the frame part of our new outdoor big screen. It’s about 9 feet wide and 5 feet tall. We’ll be stretching the blackout cloth later today.
Then to figure out how to hang/support it outdoors. We need to be able to easily take it up/down because (a) we want to use it often and (b) we can’t just keep it up all the time because of wind. More to come.
I’m glad I didn’t go crazy with the size (I was originally thinking 16 feet wide, 9 feet tall). But that would have been really tough to build and even harder to store.

Been having some issues with cat fighting / aggression. Came up out of the blue, with two of our cats who’ve been together for years. Our lover boy Ari is being a terror. I think that part-Bengal is showing. So, I’m in the shop working on shelves for the cats. Luckily, our dining room has some “lovely” wood paneling, so putting shelves in there will not distract from the ambiance.
A cat climbing tower that we built. It’s about 20″ square and 5′ high.
To keep heat in, wind out, and — most importantly — cats away, Evelyn made this cool cover for the Replicator. She also enclosed the two sides and is working on a front panel.
