I've probably mentioned a few dozen times here how badly I need bookcases. Last night I sat down and designed some really simple ones to make out of wood. Nothing fancy - just verticals with horizontals in between.
GOOD: I mentioned my project to my neighbor Ken, hoping he'd give me a good price on some boards. Turns out he gave me the best price of all: FREE! I lugged them home and they're thawing in the kitchen as I write this. Also, I already have the electric drill. I have the drill bits. I even have the screws with the countersunk head.
BAD: Now for a saw....I have several battery-powered saws. I have several batteries. I have several battery chargers. BUT DO YOU THINK I HAVE ONE LOUSY SET OF SAW/BATTERY/CHARGER THAT MATCH? Offffff course not.
I think I may just lose my mind entirely.
