    Sunday afternoon I wanted to watch football, but I also wanted to build doors for the wood shed, well what would you have done?

    I tend to store garbage pails with my wood and this will help keep the raccoons out!

    Nice work Jack Straw. Looks good. Is that pallet wood? Oh, I would have done the doors as early as possible and then tried to watch some football. Which team do you root for?

    We are Giants fans.....I had the radio out there, but I need music when I am trying to be creative. That's hemlock a friend of mine milled.

    I split wood in the rain yesterday :)
    Steelers weren't on TV here.

    I'm with you, the wood shed door was more gratifying :)

    Definitely the door. I'm not a tv person at all. I do watch some football but usually wait until the playoffs. For the last 3 or 4 years that is all I've watched is some playoffs and the super bowl.

    I try to spend as many days as possible outside this time a year, in a few months I'll be spending plenty of time inside.

    I quit watching football when I quit playing football.
    Same for baseball, softball, and basketball.
    I'd rather do something useful and build a door.
    Flame suit on.;lol This is fun.

    Nice doors! I would have worked on the doors as well then later checked the scores on TV or online. Wood working of any kind over TV, hands down but that is just me...

    DVR the game and stay away from anything that will give the score away, then watch the game when the outside work(or play) is done in 1/2 the time FF through all the BS

    Very bad to miss the hole season. Missing the whole season would be another story.
