Newest Member of the Family.

Jeff and I--

we took the plunge last weekend.

We purchased our own, smokin' hot awesome new miter saw.

We had to do it. I regret not buying him a year ago, really.

And we shall call him "Severus", and he shall live next to "Jaws", post-basement project/debacle/catastrophe/affair.

Let us test him out, shall we?

So not funny. Just a little snarkyness there for some certain men who think I've never used a saw ever, and somehow am going to manage decapitating myself.

You know who you are.

And he will be loved.

Very, very loved.

With a full 12'' blade, pullout, and a double bevel. . .

Severus, where have you been all my life?

You.Complete.Me.

That picture of your hand on the saw made me cringe! It reminds me of the time I was chopping wood (which I have done ALL MY LIFE) at girls camp and just about chopped the top of my finger off!!! Luckily I only got the corner of said finger tip and not the entire first knuckle. But man, it bled like a mother trucker and hurt like one, too!!!!

Hey, that's a power tool I've actually used before!

Severus! Best name ever.

I have Severus' older brother at my house. I bought him a couple of years ago when I replaced all the trim/window casings/door casings in my mother-in-law's house. I love my baby.

He may be getting lonely from disuse. I'll have to fire him up this summer and let him play. Glad you have a new toy, er, I mean a new TOOL!

I have to fire up my bad boy too. He's a bit dusty these days....it's been a while since I got a sawdust buzz in my garage. Congrats on adding to your family!

I have had my miter saw for several years. Love it. I wish that I had gotten a sliding saw. I can only cut 6" wide boards.

Cindy said...

Congrats on your new fella! Can't wait to see your creations!

Awesome! I always have to go borrow from my Dad since we don't have one! So jealous! Love your writing style as always. It puts a smile on my face and usually makes me giggle!

Ok see, I've been a loyal fan but now I just might have to let the green jealousy monster take over and hate you!!! Not really, but I am WAY jealous. I have been eyeing my compound miter saw since i was 7 and one day...one day...Rosie will come live with me. I have even dedicated posts to her.
So enjoy Severus, and may be be loved often!!!

Oh my gosh--I have been eyeing Severus' twin for a while. Need to get some cash flow here so I can bring one home!

Emily said...

I can't wait to see the first project you complete with him!

Libby said...

Wow, a mitre saw. Haven't a clue how to use one though. Correctly.
I'm still craving a scroll saw. And coveting your garage. With or without the toys/tools. Enjoy him/her...great name too!

You inspire me with your not-being-afraid-of-power-tools and your I-am-woman-hear-me-miter-saw. I love it!!
