The young lady is my daughter, the absolute LOVE of my life...she's giving a swimming lesson here, because at one time she was one of the fastest of her kind on the face of the planet, and the dolphin would do well to listen carefully...the other is my summer 'hobby'...building Adirondack furniture...and this is not ordinary stuff, folks...I drive to Beaver, Utah (3 hours south...) and have the LOGS sawn up individually and planed to 1" thickness 200 to 300 board feet at a time, then I drive it back up here and hand cut up the lumber and assemble it piece by piece...they're bomb proof, and nearly maintenance free...zinc bolts and coated screws throughout...
Like teaching and raising a daughter...shouldn't do anything half-assed...
And, incidentally (although some of you already know this...), one of the best way to keep stress in check is to do something out of your comfort zone, and preferably with your hands...I taught myself this hobby from the ground up (well, I did take wood shop in junior high school but only managed to build one of those dorky lean-to book shelves, and cut the end of my thumb off)...
