drive a normal person screaming into the night.

​Ohh, I dunno but let's see:

2 - sheets particleboard -         $36.00
4​ - 1" x 4" x 8" boards (mall) -    $0.00
1 - Glass (mall)  -                     $0.00
2 - Glove flanges (shop-made) - $0.00 (got the 6" PVC pipe from a friend
who works for the City of Ronan's water/sewer dept.)
​1 - Pair gloves -​                      $30.00
​1​- Jelly Jar light fixture (mall)     $0.00
1 - Switch box and switch (mall) $0.00
1 - Vacuum power cord (mall)     $0.00
1 - Misc. glue, screws                $1.50
1 - Wire mesh screen (mall)        $0.00
1 - 1 1/2" x 48" piano hinge       $14.00 (from Tiffany's)

So, doing the math it comes to  $81.50 and I still get to put it together
AND I have fun.

Still scratching my head wondering where Brian's response went.
