Too often I find myself frustrated with people's lack of sensitivity and thoughtfulness towards others...well, I just had to share this!

I have to airbrush a bright red cake tier and a bright blue tier, and was concerned about the paint dust getting everywhere and breathing it in, according to some of the posts on here. So, I read on one of the posts about Earlene's instructions on how to build one. I went and got all of the supplie; Home Depot cut the pieces of wood I needed...I asked a friend if he would cut the rectangular hole out of the center of the one piece of wood for me and to drill the holes. I told him I could do the rest. I took him the pieces this morning and he called me to come on over- he had completed the WHOLE thing!!! I am so grateful I just cannot express in words how grateful I am to him. So, I am now set up to airbrush this cake- I hope my airbrushing skills are as good as his carpenter skills.
Thanks for reading...

I'm glad you have a friend like that. He would be a good husband.

Yes, there still are some good, kind people in this world.
I was talking to a friend early in the week about not knowing how to put up a dog run since I got a new dog. Within minutes her DH came to me & said he would be over the next evening. And sure enough, he & another friend showed up & had the thing up and completed within 2 hours. Believe me I am soooooo grateful!
God is sure good at providing our needs isn't He?

Amen Sister. God is good-often we just don't take the time to appreciate it.
Would you be willing to share a pic your new gadget?

It is 24" x 18"... I have to take the film protector off of the plexiglass and put the filters over the fan yet...

I like to think there are more good people than bad. I thank the Lord every day for providing all I need.
I would love to see a picture of your new toy & an explanation on how it was made. Please tell your friend I think he is wonderful!

Awesome! I can't tell you how badly I need to build an airbrush box. I am sick of blowing rainbow colored snot for three days straight! icon_biggrin.gif

That's great! What kind of fan do you have in there?

I think it is called NuTone- I just got the cheapest bathroom exhaust fan I could find at Home Depot. It was $14.00.

I got the instructions from Earlene's website-

Here is the cake I did that I needed to airbrush- the center worked great!
