yesterday Jesse and I tried to put up a fingerboard. Fingerboards are strange little devices that mimic rock formations so that you can strengthen your fingers for rock climbing. We wanted to put it in the foyer. Here’s a simple “how to” for putting up fingerboards.

Step 1:Find studs in wall by drilling 47 holes wherever you think there might be a stud.
I wonder how many people will count to see if there are actually 47 holes in this picture
Step 2: Get frustrated and buy a stud finder
Step 3: Use stud finder to find actual studs
Step 4: Discover that there aren’t actually any studs because it’s an I-Beam
Step 5: Cut backing plate out of wood that stretches across jousts along top and bottom of I-Beam
Step 6: Mount fingerboard to backing plate
Step 7: Realize your screws aren’t long enough to mount the backing plate and postpone the project ’till later

Other than that, the weekend was a success.

    As I told my sister, I don’t want to win by cheating. But clicking on the link and telling your friends isn’t cheating. so just do that. click the links and tell your friends to click the link.

    Heh. No wonder you didn’t find any studs. There’s no studs in your house, my friend. None at all.
