Do you watch that UGLY BETTY show?

I don’t. I don’t even have a TV! Well… if they made one completely out of wood, I’D BE THERE!!!!

But… if I did, I would probably not watch that show anyways…. only because I have something BETTER than an Ugly Betty!

I have the UGLY BETSEY!!!! And let me tell ya boyz, she’s SWWWEEEEEEET!!!

Come on in and let me show you how to build the woman of your dreams!

Is it just me or did this video feature a serious Chad?

You know.. I think that serious Chad (if there is such a thing) is funnier than goofy Chad. I like this project. Its a good idea and useful on many levels.

My wife saw this video and my Honey-do list has gained a new project.

Chad -

I always enjoy your videos and your unique ability to combine good information with a solid dose of humor. This post was no exception!

What no dancing? I feel cheated, really, really cheated. OK, gotta go find a life. Bye Bye. PS, the inside tree out is a great tip, thanks.

Again.. and consistently lately. Humor with good content. A different style but hey, why not? You’re pretty cool, no matter what the women may think.. ;-)

I enjoyed it. I’ll watch part two this evening. I don’t think the project it something I’d find all that useful because I alread y have a few small step ladders in my shop, I don’t work outside the shop, and I don’t cut molding; but I was impressed by how many features were rolled into one project. MAybe you should consider selling this on late night infomercials?

And I agree—nice combination of humour and seriousness. (Loved the tea party).

Love the video of Ugly Betsey..very creative presentation and art direction..along with the combination of the special effects. Very capivating and informative at the same time. Good job.
