I'm so sorry I've been, once again, so absent. In my last post I talked about my wacky Summer schedule, the driving I've been forced to take not only with my teen daughter, but also with my husband and his bad knee.
Well, things haven't changed much!
I'm still sitting in the passenger's seat each time my daughter wants to drive and I'm still driving my husband to doctor's appointments due to his knee surgery which got worse because it got infected. :(
Yesterday, I almost spent the entire day bringing him to the hospital for yet, another surgery for the surgeon to open and clean the area, since the antibiotics alone were not enough to get rid of the infection.
I'm now crossing my fingers for things to get better.
I've been working on the closet in my son's room but I haven't had the time to upload and edit lots of pictures I have on my phone.
I've got some of the materials, including three of these sheets.
And I've spent a good amount of time in my garage doing smaller cuts besides the ones I requested at Home Depot.
While I upload the pics, I'm only going to share a trick I discovered while cutting a long piece of plywood out of a full sheet.
I don't have a work cutting bench, or saw horses, and I don't like to do the cuts low on the floor.
I use a folding table to work on my projects and it's always hard to cut full sheets of plywood.
I couldn't cut a big piece with my circular saw without someone helping me hold the cut or it would simply fall on the floor!
So, I went all around my house to find something to put on the side of the table to suspend the cut. After a long scavenger hunt for the right height item, I found these guys:
I'm so glad I changed the old seats for the flat wooden circles. And the best part is they can go up and down depending where you're cutting your material!
So, I made the cuts all by myself and the pieces didn't fall flat on the floor!
