all about the caulk

Three pieces of plywood meet at the corners. They're held down with wood screws, & the gaps in between are filled with white caulk.

The caulk jokes are inevitable, I’m just goin with it.

Having purchased more caulk, I immediately used an entire tube caulking the rest of the gaps in the plywood floor, then caulked _nearly_ the entire way around the base of the box.

There's a big purple-painted board above, a thin unpainted board below, & a really messy line of caulk in between.

… in a thorough but not very pretty manner. I’m getting there, but it’s not quick.

I think I’m gonna get the clear stuff again next time — all of this will be either painted or covered, but I still like the idea that if I miss some, it won’t be SCREAMING WHITE.

Still, once it’s painted over, it looks pretty good.

There's still two boards & a line of caulk, but it's all been painted purple now.

& with that, the box is complete.

A wide view of the trailer, from the side this time. The purple-painted boards are fastened all around now. It looks kinda pretty good.

Next up will be the shelves that will support the side walls, along with Surprise!Jigsaw.

If you want to see these posts sooner, & not incidentally help support me & my cats in our travels & such, the way to do that is to sign up as one of my Patrons for as little as a buck a month.

I’d REALLY like that.
