Living alone means you're never in someone else's way.
When is a doorway more than a doorway?
In my study I don't have a desk, but I do have a flat file. Using the table saw I made a nice shelf which fits quite securely atop one of the half-extended flat file drawers. The shelf is slotted underneath to fit the top edges of the drawer runners, nice and snug and secure...
just like me. With the morning sun coming through the window at my back and the library close by I have a nice little nook for writing papers and studying.
Now, if I could just figure out a way to write this history paper using power tools.
