Frank shows Michelle two pairs of trash baskets made from some natural fibre, probably rattan or bamboo. They're a trapezoidal shape, and he's putting the bottom one upside down and stacking the other one on top of it right side up. Then he's going to put the wooden tray-type thing on top as a surface and set a tile into that. Frink thinks they look better than he expected them to when Frank mentioned using trash baskets. I'm kind of indifferent, although at least the use of a natural grass fibre evokes something of India, unlike the white painted chest of drawers-cum-TV cabinet.
MPDP voice-overs that Doug is still monopolizing Ty's time. Now it's for a coffee table. Ty shows Doug a sketch he's done, which he describes as a twist on the classic Nelson bench. Ty blathers about making the slats into a maze rather than having them run straight.
As he and Michelle affix trash baskets together, Frank tells Jody that he thinks the new wrought-iron drawer pulls look a lot better than the old gold ones.
Doug's in Sewing World with Chris and Stacey. There are lengths of red wool laid out with odd little squares of yellowy-cream and black fabric placed on them in an apparently arbitrary fashion. The hell? Doug tells Stacey and Chris to cut fabric.
Michelle and Frank finish screwing the trash baskets together. Frank slaps the top on one and Michelle inserts the square black tile. Frank asks if it could be more perfect. The bumper to the commercial is MPDP hiding behind Frank, while they both wave their arms around all Indian goddess-like. They look exactly like Kali.
As Doug and his team sew, he muses about the name he gave the room ("Barrier"). He wonders if maybe he should call it "Racetrack." Stacey thinks that's what the kids will call it. I think the kids are going to call it McD's, but that's probably just me.
Frank and Michelle work on adding some junk to ready-made lampshades Frank's bought. The shade fabric looks like a dark brown colour with some kind of slightly reflective gold print of leaves and stems on it. Frank wants to attach cording, beads, and peacock feathers. Michelle looks less than jazzed. She pretends to consider this seriously.
Doug watches Chris sew. He encourages Chris to put on the safety glasses. I think Doug is just enjoying the sight of these ridiculously large goggles on Chris's face. Chris humours him for a moment and then tosses them aside. Doug picks them up and puts them on, remarking, "Well, no wonder my carpentry never comes out very good. Ty can't see out of these darn things."
