Real Reader Build and Showcase for a DIY Outdoor Sofa Build

A few weeks ago I got a tweet from a reader who shared some amazing pictures of his modified Outdoor Reef Sofa build with me! I absolutely loved seeing the sheer happiness, with what looks like a side of relief that seems totally apparent on his girlfriend as she takes in the moment of the big reveal! This is what I live for my friends… I love to see the look on your children's faces when you make something special just for them, your wives when you surprise them with a handcrafted version of that designer thing you have been refusing to buy for them, your totally shocked but very proud hubbies when you knock it out of the park with a build from this site using their power tools, and now you want a full set of your own… it's sheer and utter happiness for me and I hope you keep them coming! We still have a few kinks to work out for our community pages, but in the next few days it will be up and running and a place for you to chat with all the rest of us as we journey down this DIY path together. It’s fun, exciting, totally screwy sometimes, wonderously frustrating and so completely satisfying. I hope you are patient with us here at TDC while we get all of this amazing functionality we have planned up and running smoothly and please definitely help us test it out by registering, commenting, and trying out the community pages by posting a discussion, or answering a quick poll I posted to see how things are working (and to get your opinions on some very important stuff of course, inquiring minds want to know!). It's been a thrilling and bumpy few months, but you guys make my world go round and I heart you and your amazing craftsmanship so very much! Xx… Rayan
