A New Friend Found
Leafing through my new yard sale How-To-Build-Furniture book my Bride said to me, "You know I would Like some chairs to put under our big maple in the back yard."
"There are some plans for Adirondack chairs in here."
"Well, I saw, on a show, the other night where they used Arts and Crafts style chairs outside and it looked real nice."
For those of you not married let me translate that statement: 'I want Arts and Crafts chairs and nothing else will do.' There were no Arts and Crafts style chairs in this book. Another twentyfive cents wasted.
At times I really believe that HGTV is a tool of the devil.
