Teaching with Videos

HOW ISGOOD IS GOING TO MAKE A GOOD THING MUCH BETTER I am just about to begin something that has waited a long time to germinate. The first shoots are out of the soil. Teaching comes naturally to me, and my years of experience with many employees and very large very complex projects has taught me much about how to get an idea across clearly and simply. Now imagine that you have a very large well constructed oak table completely covered with a disassembled automobile, down to the la...

So what I want is:- Nightstand as tall as the bed- Shelf for CPAP machine- Hole in side of stand for CPAP hose- Two drawers- Back behind drawers,but no back behind CPAP (ma...
