    So, I have several projects to choose from – the finished one will be going to the local private high school my daughter went to before she went off to college this fall.

    The alumni newsletter came out while I was trying to decide what to do and it listed several things in there that they need that I could build (or at least die trying 🙂

    I’m meeting with them on Thursday morning to get measurements and discuss which one I will put together a plan and a piece for.
