There was an episode planned for December but as there has been such a delay between the last episode and the proposed December one I’ve decided to cancel it and end this season of the podcast. The new season will start once the set has been completed so I’m looking at an April launch of Season 4. Anyone interested in taking part as a co-host please check out this page. As there is now (or will be) a set, people local to Derby/Nottingham might want to make a physical appearance on the podcast. By all means, inquire.
Shed Build: Treat wood above freezing point!
As you can see from the photo’s above the shed construction is coming along quite nicely. No problems were encountered during the build but we do have a point to note. Don’t expect to be able to treat wood in temperatures below freezing. It just doesn’t work, so wait for a temperature of above 5 degrees C.
Outstanding items at this stage of the build happen to be quite important… we haven’t done the floor yet. The reason for this is that we are in and out of the shed with mucky footwear so rather than make a right mess of the floor we’re doing that last. This will likely be done after the Christmas and New Year holidays.
So, what will the set look like?
That’s a very good question. I’ve sketched a rather rubbish image of what I see the set looking like. It will be a spaceship bridge with your classic 5 crew stations and captain seat to enable Artemis and other gameplay activities. Maybe if you have any ideas you could sketch something that would fit the shed and send it in? Dimensions are 2.5m x 3.5m with a height of 2.5m.
Once the principal woodworking has been done it will be finished with EVA foam elements to give it all a great sci-fi look! At least, that’s the plan!
