After all this time, you should be able to understand that sisters just do not seem to understand wood and
that if they give you part of a project, brother you are supposed to be able to understand the whole darn
thing immediately and tell her exactly how to fix the darn thing and then proceed to do it for her. I do not
think that sisters have changed that much over the years. Looking at the stringer, I imagine the treads should
be included in the project. Price subject to the usual family negotiation with the wife included. With two
females against one male, you know how this is going to end. Thank you for sharing.

Well, it shows that you’re a very helpful brother.

It’s always nice to help out a sister, I’m sure she will be really grateful. Besides, it gets you up from the sofa and and excuse to play in the shop.

Good for you and well done
