On Saturday Patty and I went to Mount Carroll and took the panels with the Lazertran prints on them to the workshop. There, I oversaw my team as they slid the panels into the frames, drilled holes into the lids, and fitted the solar lights into the lids. Here is a short slideshow of the whole process, which only took just over an hour to complete:
Ryan, who is the extremely talented wood craftsman who constructed the frames for the luminaries, is recovering from a recent bout of flu, so it was a sterling effort on his part to drag himself out of bed on Saturday. His skill in getting the frames ready meant that the panels eased into the grooves in the frames in a matter of seconds, and in no time at all we had the first luminary ready to go. The local press is starting to publish articles about the project, and I'll post copies of them as they appear.
