Picture of greenhouse my brother convinced my parents to build. This is to show that my brother is good at persuading my parents to build things that they never use, as evidenced by the empty planters.
My brother convinced my dad that it would be a good idea to convert a section of one barn into a woodshop because my brother wanted to learn woodworking. My dad is very handy, but woodworking has never been one of his hobbies. In this picture there is a professional grade band saw, table saw, and router table. Since this picture was taken, my brother has convinced my dad to buy a professional grade planer, jointer, and miter saw, all of which were picked out by my brother Chas but paid for by my Dad. The only time I am aware of my dad using this equipment is when one of his son’s (me included) comes to the farm with a project to work on.
