Home Economics 101

Welcome to the Home Ec Section. Matters of the family sometimes bring joy and other times bring grief. But it is never trivial: Family matters! Feel free to discuss topics such as the sanctity of marriage; the awesome responsibility of raising children; the struggles of communication problems; the grief of losing a loved one; or anything else that relates to the home and family. However, due to the more personal nature of this section, I ask that you would be especially thoughtful of the readers' feelings. My earnest hope and prayer is that the discussions in this section will help families grow in the love of Christ.

But remember, always play by the rules: here

  • Bed Disassembly

    I'm finally taking apart the frame of a metal daybed. Thus far, it has involved removing power tools from the bed. Removing bedding. Removing mattress and box spring. Today, it involves a crosscut saw to remove the bamboo and the inch and a half of silicon.

    I'm not kidding.

    Tomorrow, I'll get the hammer and finish off the bamboo - because i can't cut all the way through any one point without it binding like crazy.

    I think Rogue could have supplied you with some disassembly fluid.

      I generally toss a grenade under the thing. Disassemblates real quick. And I don't need to wash the bedding.

      I'm always still in trouble again

        Grenades aren't very effective on things made of bamboo.

        A torch would be good.

          That wouldn't do much more than shred the bedding some. Might poke a hole or three in the frame, but wouldn't disassemblate it.

          The question is, why is she disassembling the bed, and why did she have to remove power tools first?

            I was talking about me. And how I deal with my beds. Given that you shoulda figured that a grenade tossed under it will tend to send off the 10 to 20 lbs. of C-4 stored under it.

            Total annihilation. It's the roguetech way smiley shades.gif

              It came with the house. It's in the dining room which was being used as a bedroom/project/everything room. I removed three vices - not little ones - from the surrounding shelving. The owner who's now in a nursing home was using power tools in the room - evidently, home health found him sleeping with a drill at one point. I found a drill with bit and powered battery near the head of the bed - along with a host of other tools and project bits.

              I'd gotten the mattress/box spring into storage but I'd used the bed for counter space when cleaning out the kitchen ('cleaning' being a relative term here) and then I got sick for 12 weeks so I just hadn't gotten the bed out yet. The actual back to this thing is under another bed in the actual bedroom. To solve the warping issue the bed had from not having the back on bamboo was applied liberally. So was silicon and a number of metal screws.

              I never get normal DIY projects...

                      Down at the Hart Brake Motel
                      My room it was so small,
                      Ever' time I tried to smile
                      My teeth would touch the wall,

                      But I'm a-stayin'
                      And a-payin'.
                      I ain't got room to change my mind.

                      I picked up my telephone.
                      The manager said, "Hello."
                      He said, "What's eatin' you?" I said,
                      "That's what I'd like to know"

                      An' I'm a-itchin'
                      An' a-scratchin'.
                      I'm wearin' out my fingernails.

                      I walked up to the room clerk.
                      He looked at me and said,
                      "You can have a room, but you will have to make your bed."

                      I said, "That's OK, buddy.
                      I learned that from my ma."
                      Then he reached out and handed me a hammer and a saw.

                      And I'm a-nailin' and a-wailin'
                      Here at the Hart Brake Motel.

                      Here at the Hart Brake Motel
                      I got a room with bath.
                      Back home, I only had a room, and it just had a path.

                      This outside plumbin'
                      It's unbecomin'.
                      It's really out of this world.

                      The waiter in the dinin' room
                      He filled my heart with cheer.
                      He said I would enjoy it 'cause I could eat dirt cheap here,

                      And he was so right.
                      That was my last night,
                      And now I'm checkin' out of here.

                        You had to remove power tools? Did it happen to say "No disassemble!" as you approached it?

                          They were on the bed... No, it didn't plead for its life. That would have been easier - I could just have let it go in the woods...
