So I'm getting tired of asking for things to get built, and then nothing gets done. I want to learn how to use the "big girl" tools so I can do my own projects the way I had them planned. I'll ask my stepfather, but he never follows my drawings, and does it in the most inconvenient way possible so that it only benefits him. He also locks "His" garage and hides the key so that no one can get in and use the tools. My mom won't let me use electric tools (I'm 21 by the way, and took metal and wood shop in high school). Shes nervous I'm going to cut my fingers off. She wants me to hire a handyman do get the smallest little things done. I want to learn how to do it myself, but I have no help. My mom does not know how the use the tools, and my stepfather and I do not have a relationship, so I will not ask him. I'm really just trying to convince her to get the key, and let me use the power tools on my own. I have been asking every summer for the past 2 years, but it is always no. I want to build a low waste hay feed fer the goats, and maybe redesign the inside for the chicken house if I have time. I'm just looking for some ideas to convince her.
