Sir and I had some woodworking to do. I do not have a lot of recent experience using bigger power tools, and that is a shame. To the basement!
Sir planned out how to make the things, set the tools up, and let me rip. It was a very user-friendly re-introduction to noisy tools.
Routers are amazing.
As I was finishing up, Sir was working away at the drill press.
“What’s that?” I asked.
“I’m making a thing,” he said, ending the conversation. I went back upstairs. I heard Sir working downstairs for a bit longer.
Once upstairs, Sir directed me to my spot on the floor. I was uncollared for the work day, but we were done. Sir re-collared me and told me to close my eyes.
“Hold out your hands.” I did. He put something lightweight, but broad, in my hands.
“Open your eyes.”
I found out what he was making.
Sir made a paddle for me.
