Due to (understandable) liability issues, I couldn’t do the wood cutting at the Southeast Portland Tool Library – but a kind volunteer suggested what I could borrow to bring home with me: a jigsaw, an extension cord, a heavy duty clamp (there was only one), a straight edge corner ruler, and two foldable plastic stands.  I already had a drill and sandpaper.  Mikhail was doing his best to be involved (until the jigsaw engine started, of course). I finally swept all the sawdust off my studio apartment floor this morning and I still need a couple more pieces cut. I guess the job interview I had last week was more successful than I thought – I got the position (although the official paperwork has not been filed yet, so I’m keeping what it is a secret until then!).
