Its so sad to see people confess their sins online, rather than through the appropriate lines of Church authority. Susan M, and some of her readers as well, confess to harboring some serious covetousness when it comes to rugged New England-type men and the rugged New England-type furniture they sequester. Its not like their husbands couldn't stop shaving, put on some flannels, quit their jobs, and then make really cool furniture if they only had a shop in the backyard with half a million dollars in woodworking powertools in it. Any lunkhead man could make great furniture with that setup, it would be impossible not to. Throw a tree in one side and out pops a five piece bedroom set, complete with cherry stain.
