No, now just relax. I know how to use a tape measure,
but it is step one.
There are my two marks. Now I need to make a straight line
so my little husband can cut.
Here is the tool. It has a lip on the leg that is pointing up.
This is to lock it onto the 2x securely...not as you
see it in this photo.
See the lip? If I hook it over the 2x, the line will not be straight.
That is the problem. Just look at all the ways this tool
can be used incorrectly...
Still not gonna get those two marks hooked together.
Still not right...so many ways to turn this thing....
Yes! It is lined up with the marks and I can make a straight line.
So, there you have it. The combination square used correctly.
And of course, my little husband just lays it down right
without even thinking every time!
I'm learning from a pro.
Good news is I got much better. Hardly ever have to flip it about by the end of the day.
Excitement for the day=photo of me looking out one of the bedroom windows!
Ah. News flash...that thing is HEAVY. I am holding on
and praying it doesn't fall down! Oh, and it goes on the other end
of the house with the other two walls, but we had more room on this end.
We had two of our neighbors and another friend visit today. Crissy and William even brought homemade popsicles with the icy cold drinks! Yummy again! I was a little late for Zumba, but it is always worth the effort.
