Friends of ours told this family story of theirs.
Diana's dad was a carpenter by trade and, by all accounts, a very good one.
However, he didn't like doing home repairs and had little patience when it came time to do them.
Diana's mom bought a wood burning fireplace and pressed her carpenter husband to install it.
Finally, he agreed to install the fireplace. This involved cutting a hole in the outside wall to install the chimmeny.
So, dad goes outside and finds the place where he has to cut open the wall.
Dad grabs up the reciprocating saw and starts cutting the wall.
The saw's blade is about a foot long.
The wall is...less...than a foot wide.
The blade comes through the wall.
And....into the back of their brand new living room couch.
By all accounts, the hole is still in the couch.
But they now have a nice fireplace.
