Emergency Exit

As most entertainers know, you never “really” get around to repairs until you have company. David Dodde stayed with us a few days over the holiday break and I knew he’d call me out on a big hole that I never fixed on our back door. The previous owners of our home had some crazy deadbolt rig that they must have removed and “patched” using the foil cap from a wine bottle. I’m no better…I blew off the repair until last Friday. As I scrambled the day before David and Jen rolled up the driveway, I remembered a thin maple Girard Slab exit arrow we prototyped a few years ago that was just waiting to be glued over the hole.
