...well, not really.
BUT, fish and i finally agreed on a plan we both love.
cost : about $80.
today, fish got out of work unexpectedly early...
...and had time to make all the cuts!
(( ...on the work bench he made! ))
...including two of these fancy-shmancy guys:
they'll be the staircase sides.
here's the pretty pile of wood, ready to be sanded, stained...
the wood will be sitting here awhile though...we now have to wait for that rare, rare occurence: fish to have time off.
