Well, the first pieces of the Sliding Puzzle of Life are in their proper place and I’ve actually managed to make stuff. A couple of weeks ago I put together 4 of these Heavy Duty Sawhorses I found in a book. While waiting for the tools to arrive, I thought I would hand cut and assemble one, but the mitres defeated me and the hand cut horse is a full 6cm shorter than the others.
As a familiarization exercise for the new tools it was a good one, and combined with the sheet goods I have no place else to store at the moment, they make a mediocre work surface.
I have no illusions as to the quality of the build or their merit as a project, but for my first “I built this” I am pleased enough.
