I'm stepping it up!  I used a saw yesterday.  Normally I stick with tools that can't remove limbs or digits, but I'm determined enough to overcome my phobia.  It was actually kind of fun except for the dust part.  (I had to do it indoors because the weather hasn’t been great and I’m on a time crunch.)  I’m making a triple bunk bed for the girls’ birthday.


I made my plans a while ago, but just bought the wood on Thursday.  That was an interesting experience.  I gathered my supplies and ordered wood at the project desk at Lowes.  An older man at the desk asked me who was going to build it.  I told him that I was.  He looked at me and I could almost read the thought, “But you’re a girl!”  It seemed like those I talked to there were surprised that I actually knew what I wanted and had my plans in order.  I don’t have experience, but I do have a good brain, so I’m hoping this will turn out well.  We shall see!

Buloney you have no experience. You designed and built our front porch gate, as well as a pair of wooden benches for our porch. This one has a little more complexity and precision required, but you DO have the skills AND the brain. I married Supermom!
