Made sure to cut four pieces of each kind of wood first, of course! ...only to find that they're all about 1/2" too short, and I need to make four more which will be long enough. I managed to get two cut from what I had left but then found that the rectangular section was inexplicably thicker on one end than it had been on the other.
...gave up, put it all away, and came inside. *sigh*

So, I'm tired, which means all I'm going to do is read the comics, and then probably just flop around until my wife gets home.
