I showed them to Steven.
"What's wrong with some two by fours and a sheet of plywood?"
"You will have to build it."
He went out to the shop to work on the car. I answered a CL ad about a Singer 404. It had a case and I want that case for Genn's machine. I left a message. The seller called back rather quickly and we made arrangements to meet at about one PM.
We met the guy at the designated public place and I bought the machine. That is another story. Since we were right around the corner from Home Depot, we went to look at shelves and I bought some. Not the ones I had been looking at on line. No, these are HEAVY DUTY INDUSTRIAL STRENGTH. To my surprise, as soon as we got home Steven decided we should set them up.
"You clear out where you want to put them and I will start putting them together."
"OK, but Honey, I need you to help me figure out where to put them if you don't want me to put them too close to the stove pipe."
He came into the shop looked around, looked around some more and abruptly left
"I can't take it. You have to decide. It is too gross for me. When you start piling stuff floor to ceiling.....it's just too much."
He did put the shelves together.
I loaded them up.
I admit that this is a very messy corner. Selling the Singer #42 cabinet will help. I will list it on eBay as a local pick up tomorrow. Oh, maybe not. I will have to take the treadle stand off of it so that I can take photos. I think I would rather sew. Or fix the Pfaff.
