The Week in Renovation: Wednesday

Can you make me

a chair that looks

like this chair?

I don't have

that kind of wood.

If I get it for you,

will you make me

the chair?

I don't have

that kind of tool.

If I get it for you,

will you make it

for me?

I haven't made

a chair in years.

I saw you making

a chair this morning.

If you think you saw me

making a chair,

you didn't see anything.
