In January of 2007, we started to re-paint and re-decorate my sewing room. I wanted white trim and bead board. This meant Richie needed something unknown to him..."tools". I excitedly bought 3 different styles of trim for the room. He bought an $8.00 plastic miter box with attached saw.... hummmmm....I had doubts. After much strife, a box of bandaids and a few choice swear words, six weeks later the room was mostly done. However, the upper trim was beveled....hence no matter how hard he tried, Richie could not get the corners mitered. We took trips to Home Depot for help, trips to Lowes to check out other saws and finally a cold, late night trip to my Dad's favorite place... "Sears". Here a young teenager took the time to explain to Richard he needed a "different" kind of saw...which we purchased. Still no results other than his frustration, saying the room was just going to have to go without trim. Then in December for his birthday and Christmas, he received several gift certificates to Sears and last weekend.... Voila ! A compound-miter saw was purchased.. nice and shiny red.. once again with instructions from a nice young man on how to make the cuts we needed. So yesterday, the saw came out of the box, the white trim was dug out from the garage where it had been for a year. My excitedness for a finished room returned.... only to have him re-appear from the basement saying "we have to make another trip to Home Depot... I still can't figure it out". "WHAT????" So off we were for yet another lesson from yet another patient young man. Finally, today at 4:30 SUCCESS! ! The trim was up! From the looks of this picture, Richie now needs a tool bench....... don't you agree?
