Drilling the holes

I've had a bit of a lull in progress lately so I thought I'd get on with all the drilling that needs to be done. Last night I drilled out all the individual tea cups and the tea pot ready for the microphones and light detecting diode wires to go through. This was a very slow process as the
tea set is made of something very dense, maybe terra-cotta, and I couldn't afford to break anything from drill pressure or the friction that was generated. While I had the drill out I made the necessary holes in the new sewing box, one for each of the tea cups and pot, one in the bottom of the box for power and another for ventilation of the Mac Mini.
