Over the last two weeks he helped create the model box of the set and then presented it to the team.
We are day 2 of rehearsals. Tony tells us what he’s been doing this week:
"I have made the steps and the platform for the section over the door. I was screwing it all together – checking the screws are at the right angles, filling in the screw holes. 156 screws -we have 416 to put in!
I am getting really excited now all the time. I’m really looking forward to painting the set. These steps will be red and yellow maybe with a star in the middle. The platform will be all black with bare wood on the side.
I am really looking forward to explaining to people what I did. I’ll be there at the Q& A after the show on Thursday.
Yesterday I went to the shop and I bought a bird box and table – I can use my new found carpentry skills to make it for my garden."
