Drilled Octagon Ports, Dado Cuts for Booster Cover Tops

After recovering from my giddiness at receiving my holoprojectors, I got back to work.

First, I drilled the backs of the octagon ports to accommodate screws for attaching a paddle that will hang from the frame on the inside. I cut off the ends of some #4-40 screws and glued them in the holes.

Next, it was time to make dado cuts into the booster cover tops. My friend Kelvin came over to help with those, since they require a change-out of the saw blades, and I don't know what I'm doing when it comes to that (and most everything else). Kelvin did the actual cutting, which was fine with me.

Lots more work to do on these booster covers, but they are coming along slowly but surely.
