Did you request diamonds and pearls, or maybe a big box of candy this year? Those are the normal things girls ask for on Valentine’s Day but not this girl. Nope not me I wanted my very own Miter Saw.
There’s so many times I
want NO NEED to do a project when our nice big expensive miter saw is either on hubby’s truck, at a job site, or in a job trailer and I have to wait patiently, which I’m not good at, to complete my brilliant idea.
So I made mention to hubby that I would like my very own to keep in the house along with the other tools I have (I have to hide my own stash, not to mention any names but others that live in this house use them and they never end up back in my toolbox). Just saying a girl needs her own tools sometimes. Hubby must have been paying attention because he went out and purchased me a Miter Saw.
I did make it clear that I wanted something I could lift on my own and inexpensive; it’s not much good if I have to wait for a man to be around to haul it around for me and I don’t need a top of the line model. I was so anxious to give it a go that I did my first project right on the dining room table. I hooked my vacuum up to the sawdust discharge port and turned it on in hopes it would collect most of the dust. Note to self, NOT such a brilliant idea. I still had a mess to clean up. Next time I will have to use it outside for sure.
Here’s a sneak peek of what I built, and if you come back on Sunday you can see the reveal. So tell me are you a tool girl like me or do you like the fancy stuff for Valentine’s Day?
