New Project

Yesterday I set foot in a foreign world. The natives call it “Jo-Ann Fabrics.” Being the only male in the store, I proceeded to immediately ask for assistance. “What can I do for you today?” “I'm building a poker table.” That's right fair reader, I have embarked on a new project. I will be constructing my very own poker table. It won't be anything fancy at first but I'm leaving room for improvement later. The basics are a suede surface, a padded rail, and folding table legs for easy storage. I don't know how many times this thing will actually get used, but I found some extra wood in the garage so this seemed like a good way to use it up. Plus it was an excuse to go to Home Depot and buy some toys. I picked up a power sander and an electric staple gun. I'll be taking pictures of the whole thing and writing up a project guide just like I have done for my other projects. I don't see this project taking more than a couple weeks to finish, but then again who knows what I'll run into. Theoretically this will all culminate in poker night at my house so every can take revenge on me for my win a couple weeks ago.
