Today I HAD to build a milking stand for a nigerian dwarf goat. I found a plan online, then I went to the Home Depot and I bought lumber and screws.
Then I measured and asked my husband how to make the saw go. He suggested that he do the cutting.
Then I measured some more and he wandered off and I didn't want to wait, so I decided to cut. With the saw. Really, I have pictures.
So after he came in and chastised me about missing fingers and horrible disfigurements. I nodded and said things like, "Hmmm." and "Okay dear." and cut some more.
After which he came in, threw up his hands and then left me alone. Sooo, I measured and cut and drilled and used the instructions (except when they didn't make sense, and then I just looked at the picture)
And it actually started to look like what it was supposed to!
And then I finished it and am rather proud of myself.
Now all I need is a nigerian dwarf doe in milk, but I'm ready.
