There is very little furniture in the house that I have not made, including the kitchen. Don’t get me wrong, I really do enjoy making most of it, I just didn’t know the list was that long – a bit of a surprise.

Ladders bother me, if I am to use one outside to the roof, it is screwed down to the deck – had one go out from under me once for a 2 story drop – that was not a good day. In the house, I use a Little Giant, it is heavy but it is safer.

Some of the pieces I have made were not exactly what she had in mind, so I had to make new ones. For the most part, she designs what she wants me to make and I build it. It seems that for every piece I make, the list gets longer. I have been trying to change her furniture style a bit, just to make some that are more interesting and challenging but for her, simple is better, functional is great.

I was wondering how all of you deal with this, I have work for years to come.
