Admire DH's handiwork

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
DH finally got around to ordering the false wood for the railings around our false wood upper deck. It only took him a year (we had wire up for safety) to order the rails. Uh-huh. We got the stuff delivered last weekend but it was raining so he did not do anything. Today is sunny. He works on the rail this pm. He asked me if I liked his "handiwork."

He put up ONE rail! At this rate, I'll be lucky to have it put up before next year!

---- I'm sorry I shouldn't laugh!! But I think our hubby's are alike! LOL, mine finally made me the beautiful dining room table that he's promised me for so long..... but we are sitting on patio chairs at it now! I've put in my request for chairs.... but I've got a long wait in front of me!

I love to watch a man get so frustrated over handywork - it's even funnier when they know that their girlfriend could do the job better! DH got me to patch up the floor in the bathroom a while back because he coudln't work out how to mix the cement. A contractor who was out at a later date said that the work looked like it was done by a pro. DH was fuming!!

Seriously, can YOU go out and help him with the rails. I'm sure its not that hard and your willingness to help and learn will be appreciated by him.

Just say "honey, is there anything I can do to help you with the rails - I'd like to learn how to it and you are a good teacher"

Sorry. Don't feel singled out though..My mom use to say you could tell when my dad had something to do around the house because he was usually heading off to the lake with his fishing rod..

So sorry. I know that can be frustrating. Hang in there. It's so funny how men need their egos stroked for the slightest thing.

Seriously, I would have to have my head examined if I offer my help. A good teacher? Not in the slightest. We'd be separated before the next rail was up.

LOL If my husband was off to the lake to go fishing I would be right there with him!!!!

Last summer I was working at the company my husband works. He would come down to work with me for overtime money. We worked side by side doing Fabrication work, we had our little spats, but I really learned a lot from him!!! Now it is a funny memory! I never used a chop saw, or nail gun in my life before that job, I was scared to death of them. Now I am planning on doing a lot of things around the house!!!!! It opened doors for me

I had to wait 2 years to have shelves put up in my bedroom! Dad kept saying to me "I will do it this weekend" but never got round to it....in the end I pestered that much he done it there and then!

This is for everyone whose dh or family member say that they will get to whatever needs to be done when they get around to it....

This is "A Round Tuit"

DH had that a long time ago on a piece of paper. Its so funny when people say "I'll get a round to it and get it done" - he hands them the "round Tuit".

Neil is planning a big project (supposedly to last last October). got the $800 jointer that was a "must have" for the project. Now he wants to start in the spring-thats my super busy time for work!! Guess he will have to work on it himself.
His plan is from a cover of a Martha Stewart magazine. He like the ceiling so "we" are going to do an approximation of a beadboard ceiling with a complicated trim (hence the jointer).
I'm not holding my breath yet!!
