i spent the holiday weekend at my parent’s house. in addition to delicious food i also got to make some work. on their lanai, after all this time, sits my first work bench. way back when i was 18 and moved out for the first time my place had a nice screened in porch, perfect to do art on. i mentioned needing a work bench and my roommate’s boyfriend (who was doing construction and had access to lots of scrap wood) built it right up.
