As a hobby, I work with a lot of wood, building furniture and decorations, using saws and measuring. As I work, I am constantly—out loud occasionally but mainly in my head—explaining every step, cut, and careful measurement to the studio audience and those watching at home. “This leg needs to be thirty-four and one-quarter inches. That’s the thirty-five inches of the height of the table minus the three-quarters thickness of the tabletop. Now I’ll do the same to the other three legs.” I really have to hit the Bostonian pronunciation of “quarter,” lest the audience see through my mask.
