Well frustration was at its peak by the time i packed it in last night. Linda asked me to make up a pelmet to hold the curtain rails for our bedroom. Now we not in our final destination right now we renting a real old place till we decide on a property. So this place goes back to days of plastered walls etc.
Well relatively new windows but super old trim.
So i measured width at sil level not stopping to think it would be out. .Ok so wrecked first piece of cheap pine i was using.
But duh you think i would have learnt I go measure the top after and then recut but used the bottom measurement again. duh.
I could have slapped myself silly. So not that I like doing a tacky job (which adds to frustration rather than the joy and satisfactkon) but good old stanley flat brackets came in handy and i just joined on a piece.
The customer was happy but i aint but what the heck i am trying to learn to pick my battles.
Woodworking with a bad wing aint fun either and to top it off all my tools and things are still in one huge mess and pile in tha garage.
But hey the ability to set up a couple of saw horses and work outside with the new neighbor having a good ol Italian family get together and not bothering me an ounce was PRICELESS
Hope its sunk in to measure measure measure where i need to.
