Coffee Bar Update
I ask for very little help around here and it is safe to say that I do the bulk of the work that gets done here. I enjoy working outside after being held captive all winter.
Would I like some help? Why, yes, that would be nice. I don't mind giving very explicit instructions, nor do I mind being asked if one is doing what I wanted BEFORE one simply does whatever he thinks will do.
HeWho swears I will cut my hand off if I use the saw, decided to install the the main shelf of my coffee bar. This is the FRONT right corner where HeWho knows it all, connected it to the leg underneath. There are two screws there, see them? Of course you do, it draws your eye straight to it .... and not in a good way. Plus the holes he left when he realized he was not lined up for the leg. Classy.
This is the other side, same thing here, an attempt and then the actual screw. I was outside all day planting and shoveling rock and painting pots and I came in to see this. It took all my self control not to scream at him, but it was his birthday and he made the sacrifice to do this for me.
You need to know that I held the shelf up and told him where to place the leg on the right side. I also handed him the L brackets that I told him to use so he would not ruin the top. I PUT THEM IN HIS LINE OF VISION and then asked if he needed my help and if he understood what I said.
After I freaked out and almost started crying, he said it was no big deal, he would fix it with wood putty and it wouldn't even be noticable. Yeah, I don't think so. I got in the shower to get ready to go the Rib Country so he cold get a free half rack of ribs for his birthday. I could hear the drill while I dried my hair.
Now there are 6 holes, no screws and he used the L brackets I had originally told him to. Wasn't hard at all, but why couldn't he think before he destroyed my piece of wood. He reminded me that we still had another piece and I reminded him that we still had two shelves to cut. Anyone who knows me, knows how it pains me to waste things. Anything.
I have lost my impetus to finish the project.
