Stepping Up.

About a month ago Jamie came to me with a project request. "We need some steps" was his simple request. He was officiating a marriage and the couple wanted to have the ceremony in our FLC (Family Life Center). Unfortunately, there were no central steps for the couple to use when they walked down the aisle. It wasn't a big request, but it was one that got me back in my shop building something. Normally, my feet and legs would start aching after an hour or so, limiting my activities to smaller projects. For some reason, on this project  they seemed to do much better. Here are some pictures from the 'steps' project:

Jamie came over and helped with the carpeting and then he, Nick and I moved the steps into the FLC the day prior to the wedding.  In all, a great little project!  (Oh, the wedding came came off without incident and the steps worked perfectly). My building services have been requested once again for two additional sets of steps and I am happy to oblige.
