The first part of march didn't involve much in the way of holographic goodness. Susan and I spent most of our free time preparing for the North Texas Irish Festival.

Bill McGarvin stopped by Andres' house to drop off the hexcel sheets Andres and I were purchasing from him. We helped unload the box (which was very light for something that contained five sheets of aluminum hexcel) and then took Bill out to the Irish Rover for some beers and conversation.
According to my calculations I should be able to make an extremely rigid and light table with this (I'd put in the numbers but I had a hard drive crash yesterday, I'm writing this on the 14th, and much of today is going to be spent recovering that data).
Earlier in the week I purchased some aluminum and steel rods so that Andres and I could make a bunch of new mounts (base on the mounts by Colin Kaminski)
I set about trying to make the first throwaway (the first almost always is) mount.

Today Andres and I got together to make a bunch of mounts. In four hours time I think we made six or seven mounts. It's a lot of time for so few mounts but so far I'm very happy with their performance.

This evening I took some time to cut the hexcel using a jigsaw with a metal cutoff blade. I've now got three cut pieces that are 3.5x5' and another three that are 3.5x1.5' for a total of four layers of hexcel. Next week I'll start assembling the table top.
