Got to play with tools over the weekend. It has been MANY years since I have been able to "play" with tools. This week it is the Miter Saw and a Jig saw. FUN FUN FUN.

We started working on installing the trim for mom, but would have to spend 15 minutes just arranging things in the workshop just to measure something out, then another 15 to re-arrange so we could cut... We said ENOUGH. and decided to spend yesterday straightening things up and see what we had to build a cutting table. Which I guess turned out to be a good thing as we found out that the wood in the rafters that we thought were good 2x4's were not exactly what we had in mind - they were only about 15" long! Which would make for a SHORT table ;) We racked our brains and was in the process of planning a trip to Home Depot or Lowe's when it occurred to my son there were all the leftover posts and 2x4's still in the back from building sister's deck. Woot! SCORE!!!! There were 3 good sized 4x4 posts and several useful lengths of 2x4's. and we found an old 3/4" plywood cabinet door that we can cut in half and use as the top of the table.

So today will be cutting and assembling... along with mopping and laundry :D
