I'm keeping my hubby
I woke up this afternoon to find that he made me this. It's simple but it works, is adjustable AND collapsable.

WOW! What a guy!
He definitely is a keeper, but are you a loaner-outer so the rest of us can have one too???
Well, I just have to show this to my dh, any copyright on his creation?

you can have my dh.... but he doesn't do stuff like that for me... and its not a loan... more like a grant... meaning you don't have to give him back!

but that is special and you're lucky to have such a giving husband ~sniff sniff~ i'm jelsous :crying:

What a great idea! I could have saved much $ by having mine do it, but I'd still be waiting for it to be finished. He would have bought the wood and some new drill bits, but it would all be sitting in the basement!

Kool, there's hope for your hubby. Mine's a computer geek, too.

I was actually pretty surprised to find this waiting for me. We'd talked about them at supper and there was one of those "umbrella" type ones at AC Moore and that was beyond his capabilities without plans. So I knew that we'd have to buy one, but my "fun money" stash was all gone for the month.

Turns out before I woke up yesterday he went searching the web for pictures and/or plans to make one and he found a picture of this type.

I'll never whine about his wood stash again. (OK, I probably will but not for a few weeks heheheh)

I have been known to auction him off in a chat room I hang out with. Once the winning bid was $35 and 10 lbs of boiled peanuts. I sometimes kick myself for not accepting that bid. *laugh*

WOW! That's great!!! Very cool, simple design, love it! Did you say the plans are online? Love to see the link!

My DH will do almost anything for me, but he's allergic to the sawdust so I can't get him to do too much in the woodshop. I've got an old spinning wheel I'm fixing up, and I'm trying to get him to make a new foot pedal for me, and so far no luck. Might have to do it myself this time! If I do it myself, it won't be pretty, because I have little patience for woodworking. LOL
