Wife has left me and Son today for a trip to Europe. For the next 3 weeks I have sole charge of my Son. I still haven’t finished the TV cabinet. Or the sports car. And now with a toddler to occupy my attention I will have even less time for DIY.
So I decided to start another project.
Wife will be thrilled!
It came to me that I would have more time to finish my projects if Son could roam the backyard with no fear of him toddling out on to the road. What I need are some gates across the driveway to stop him getting in to trouble. But of course no ordinary gate will do. And besides, I have new tools to break in. So I have decided on double wooden vertical-slat gates on castor wheels with full mortise and tenon joints.
How hard can it be.
But, hang on! Won’t making the gates take time? And don’t I need more time to finish my current projects? Sigh. It’s a bit like buying a wallet with your last cash to keep your cash in…
