The End of Dovetails?


Ersatz and quick fan storage.

So far, no one who’s viewed my house has made an offer. I know, I know…there’ve been only four showings. Plus, it hasn’t even been on the market for a week.

Tomorrow, there are now three scheduled showings and an open house. Here’s hoping someone falls in love…because this morning, I signed the contingency offer accepted by the owner of the house into which I want to sink tens of thousands of dollars, and gallons of blood, toil, sweat and – no doubt – tears*. It’s a 1915 Arts & Crafts fixer-upper.

Perhaps, it’s all just a massive and expensive justification  to build furniture with through-tenons.; I’m so over dovetails.

* Yes, I know I changed Churchill’s word order; poetic license.

    Fortune favors the bold, or so I hear. Good for you going for your dream. With a steadily improving economy and your feet firmly planted on a brilliant career path, you’ll be fine! Besides if everything does fall apart I’m sure Schwarz has a couch, and just imaging what a great litter box one of his tool chests would make!!
