Most "girls" would not allow power tools to make a mess in their house. I, however, invite them in and give them a glass of tea. I even invited Mr. Old School Saw. The hubs would not have allowed them in the house, but would have made them stay in the garage. They made a pretty big mess, but it was mopping day anyway so, what's a little sawdust? And if you are wondering what I'm doing....I was turning an 8 foot plank table into two tables...I'll show you where they ended up later. It's too dark for pics.
