Sharing hobbies is a great way to keep a relationship healthy, you are a lucky man to have your wife join in the fun. Of course this could also mean carte blanc as far as remodelling/upgrading the shop.

Wish I could join ya for the BBQ but the commute is a bit much, bon appetite.

Good job Debbie! Look, after next weekend if you are free I could use a little help with a deck I have to rebuild.

Way to go man. Getting the Pretty Mrs. Sandhill into the shop is great. Now all you have to do is to remind her of two things….. #1 Put on some safety glasses when using those power tools, and #2 It’s YOUR SHOP and there you are the BOSS!.. Ok.. Forget #2. Have a great day.

Thanks for the offer, but a bit of a drive for me.

Getting the other half involved with your hobby is great. A few years back I introduced my wife to golf. It has cost me a bunch of money since, but I now always have someone to play with. Not sure if I would want her in the shop though.

That is great that your wife is wanting to do some woodworking. Now when you get a new piece of equipment you can say,”Look what I got for you Dear!” Thanks for posting.

God Bless

Well, Sandhill, it looks like you were too slow on that project. It looks like she is having fun doing it. The only problem I can see is that now you may have to wait on your tools to be able to use them. Or, maybe this is a reason to buy all new tools for you and build a new shop. That way you can have his and hers tools and shops.

Thanks for the steak offer, butI must pass.

You are now married to an official toolbelt Diva. Your shop will never be the same, my friend, now that she is a woodworker. :)

Thanks for the post.

Go Debbie.. Go Debbie
And is she a member, now? So she can post her own projects?

Its nice to share and I am lucky to have a friend to work along side of both in the shop and in life. Her true love (besides me) is Gardening, Quilting and china painting but she likes to experiment in a wide range of crafts but I have a feeling she will be in the shop often from now on.
Thanks everyone
PS I will remind her about the safety glasses.

Well it rained today which means no wood working outside and that is where we would have had to do the finishing and next week we go to Atlants to visit the grand kids, maybe in two weeks we can get back to it.

Try Bush Gardens outside Tampa and stay away from Disney you will save a LOT of money and still have a lot of fun.
