Forthcoming carpentry

After prolonged irritation at the shortage of space for audio-visual equipment in the corner of my living room, I decided (some time ago) to construct a unit to go over the television, providing me with an additional flat surface on top of it.
This unit will fit snugly around the top and two sides of my TV set, and support a CD player and VCR.
I have the materials. I have the tools. I have taken measurements and drawn lines on my materials in pencil. Now I have to wait for one of the following so that I can start sawing:
1. The weather to get better
2. Karen to leave the house so I can use the kitchen table as a workbench, which everyone knows is the right thing to do in this situation.
Excitement. Can’t contain it. Want. To. Saw.

  1. The frame will sit snugly around the wide front bit of the TV. All the ventilation slots are on the narrow-but-chunky bit behind it, so it should be adequately aired.

  2. I already have one. It’s called the-arm-of-the-sofa.

  3. I’m sure Karen would let you saw on the kitchen table if you asked nicely* . . . after all, no one can come between a man and his saw (so I’m told; I’ve never had the urge to saw, or indeed to do any household DIY).
    *as long as you don’t actually saw through the table, of course.

  4. Heh, you have a lot to learn about Karen.

  5. I didn’t know I was so scary. I’m quite pleased.
