      I finally found a wooden project that seems simple enough for me to attempt. It will require few materials: boards, hinges, hasps, and handles. It will require tools: a saw (which I don't need, because the Home Depot cut the boards for me); a sander; a small hammer; a screwdriver.

      Best of all, I can gradually spirit the funds for each item away from the grocery budget, and Akim won't realize what's going on until I show him the finished product and sing out, "Surprise!"

      Problem: I have everything I need to get started, except one crucial thing: I don't have a wood shop. I never thought I'd need one, and my apartment building/complex has nowhere that I could put one anyway, so I never worried about it. The thing is, I can't use the sander without somewhere to plug it in. I can't do it inside, because the sawdust will get everywhere, becoming problematic for me and for Akim, not to mention my poor cats. I can't do it outside, because there are no outdoor outlets. Not even my storage room, where the bikes live, has an outlet anywhere!

      What do you do, you woodworkers? Do you all have wood shops in which to work your woody magic, or is there some sort of secret that should've been passed down from my grandfather, except that I'm a girl and what I got from him was pretty haircuts (he was a barber)?

                    Yes. I have… *counts*… maybe 20 boards to sand? And while I appreciate elbow grease, I really think my arms might fall off, plus I might start to hate the project, if I sanded all of them by hand.
