Just a quick one. My Dad Tom gave us a lawn roller last year but it needed a new handle. I turned one from some rough sawn oak that came with the OAH in the form of shelves. I turned it on a Shopsmith which I am liking more and more.
Five years ago we decided to take the plunge and buy our first house, we found a fixer-upper in South Central Wisconsin. We became the owners of the Old Arnold House, as it is known to everyone in our Village of 1500 people. My husband is as handy as they come and convinced me that it was a great idea to turn the house around together. Along the way we've learned a lot about home improvement, each other, and the Arnolds. It seems that everyone has a crazy story about the Arnold family.
We've had a lot of help along the way (THANK YOU everyone!) and want to share our continued progress with them and provide a cautionary tale to those of you who dare to fancy yourselves handy!
