My dad, who lives a block away, actually has all the tools I'd need but you don't understand the big picture. He's a master woodworker and perfectionist. He's going to want to know what I am building and, when I show him the various designs, he's going to bad mouth them all and take over the project or tell me not to build it. He's also very difficult to work with on projects. Metal ones can be found online for $100.
