I'm great with design, not so much with the building. I hate using the power saw. It's not a complicated design, but it's so much easier to just sketch the schematic than to get all sawdusty, covered in scratches and try to figure out why the whole thing is still wobbly. My husband is taking over my project, which I didn't want to happen at first (b/c he's got so much else to do and this was my pet project) but now I don't see myself as being able to finish it without his help anyways. This is not my first woodworking project, but it is the biggest and the most, um, ... practical. If my computer desk didn't work well, no biggie, but this has to keep my chickies alive, safe and comfortable, so it has to be *right*. Anybody else have a pretty steep learning curve with the building process? Or tried to tackle a coop project that seemed much easier on paper than in reality? I just can't wait for this to be *done*.
