That’s an Impressive Tool.

Yesterday Manda came over to my parents’ house and we spent the day improving the craft fair booth structure and trying to make it more stable.

Check out the humongous pipe-cutting tool that Manda is wielding. We were trying to decide whether or not this would be a worthy investment…AND IT WAS. IT’S OUR NEW FAVORITE THING. It makes cutting our pipe so much easier than with a PVC saw. It’s kind of scary, and you could probably cut your hand off, BUT WE LOVE IT. When we were looking at it at Home Depot, this big muscle-y dude walked by and was like, “That’s impressive. That even impresses ME.” SOLD.

Also while in Home Depot, I was walking through an aisle and saw some random monitor/screen turn into a camera displaying video of me walking, so then I started jumping and dancing in front of it in case someone was monitoring it, and then I kept walking and noticed an old man staring at me, disturbed.

Thanks so much to a friendly stranger on Facebook for  messaging me with ideas for making our structure less wobbly! It’s awesome!

We now have 4 days to complete this thing. It seems impossible to me, but we’re going to keep trying!

    Hooray for you guys! I hope everything goes well with your booth and you enjoy the fair! By the way, LOVE Manda’s new (well…new to me) hair. It looks awesome!

    After seeing this I really want to go and make my own instead of buying one of those ugly tent things.

      There have been many moments when I thought I should have just bought something readymade! But I didn’t want a roof on my structure. We’ll see if this all actually works in the end!

  3. That is pretty epic. I won’t show this to my little jewelry wire cutters… they’ll feel inadequate!!

    I especially appreciate that this most hardcore of bolt cutters looks rather like a parrot. And the frame is fahhhhbulous dahlink, absolutely awesome 😉 You might even have a following for that alone after the fact!

  5. YAAAAAAY! It’s looking great! Tools make all the difference! Im confident you will succeed in time! Cant wait to peep the finished structure!

  6. I can’t wait to see what it looks like once it’s all set up to use.

    It’s looking fantastic so far! Good job! Funny…yours is the second PVC project that’s popped up on my feed in a couple of days. The other was a similar structure that the parents attached water misters to for their kids.

    I’m coming by to see you Saturday. Talked 2 girlfriends into making the trip to SF for the craft show. Looks like a lot of fun.

        Built by cute chicks with big tools, I’m sure it will be ridiculous (in a good way) no matter what.
