On Saturday, My daughter Victoria and I went to Lowes to do the little build project for children. We built a sled. I told her, “If you don’t put those sickers on it, you can paint it and give it to Grandma.” She liked the idea of giving Grandma a sled but she wanted a bigger one. I said, “I suppose we can make one.”
Don’t do that!
You might as well spend the time and do a really good one. I could have upholstered a three piece sectional and had it in the house with all the time I spent on this once a year little sled. Despite the fact that I wanted to do this quick, I couldn’t. I still did it in 1/3 the time it should have taken and it shows. Sure – it’s good enough for a craft fair but I’m not into craft fair items.
But – my daughter helped me. That is really cool. She did all the sanding, some of the cutting, some of the routing, some of the upholstery and almost all of the sanding.
All we need in Dasher, and Francer and….
-- Thanks for all the lessons!
