A few weeks ago the little lady came in from work and said I need for you to make me something. Question: What this time? Answer: I want you to make me a rack where I can put my labels for the parts I made. Ok!!!!!!!!!!! What do you have in mind. Answer. Just a piece of wood with some sticks where I can put my labels. Sticks? You mean dowels. Answer: What ever you call it.
Question: How wide or the labels? Answer: I don’t know.
After a few days I finally got her to bring me a label home. She did and my little pea brain got to thinking what can i do. My first thinking was the piece of wood and sticks. Didn’t like that idea. Changed my mind and starting something else. Didn’t like that either, changed my mind and something else.
After a few days of back and forth this is what I came up with. Didn’t do a good job of planning since I got myself in a fix and needed to drill a few holes and something was in the way. Didn’t sand the wood as I should have, and matter of fact didn’t do a lot of what I should have done.
Nothing to be proud of but it’s done. When she came home from work today I had it sitting on the little table in the kitchen. She looked at it, she looked at me. She didn’t jump up and shout that’s great or anything other than, it’s okay. Think she just wanted something simple and yet i spend more time on this than it’s worth.
So tomorrow morning I will see if she takes it to work or I will have to find something I can do with this thing.
