Messing up with tools.

Make no mistake, there are a lot of things you can wreck with tools.  I have built some ugly, ugly stuff in my time.  But the beauty of it is that you learn from your mistakes. Every crummy thing I’ve done has led to a better job next time.  (Just like in life, huh?)

Some things to think about:   * Know how to find a stud in a wall.  Heavy stuff needs to be drilled into a stud for maximum strength. * Know how to install a wall anchor.  These are for things that need to be installed where you can’t reach a stud.  *Know where your first aid kit is. * Measure, measure, measure.  There’s an old saying, “Measure twice, cut once.”  My personal motto is, “Measure twice, cut once.  Realize you cut wrong grumblegrumblegrumble.  Buy more wood and cut again.)
