<snip> What I need is a new technique which is quiet so as not to
disturb the baby and the wife. Normally I work with power tools, so I
thought about working with hand tools. Saws are OK but banging on a
chisel is out. <snip>
You tiptoe around the kid, then every little noise is gonna wake
her up. Granted, you don't want to crank up a really loud tool when she
is asleep, but "normal tools", don't worry about, including banging on
chisels. May wake the kid up the first time or so, but in no time
she'll be sleeping thru it all.
We were finishing the inside of your home just after the second son
was born. Drywall, hammering, all that. Finished the back bedroom off
first, including carpet. Lay the kid on the floor, wait a couple of
minutes, then go out and start pounding. No prob. You obviously
wouldn't want to pound on somehting right next the kid's ear, but don't
worry about being overly quiet. We learned with the first kid, any
little noise would wake him up. Not fun.
