WALDORF, MD — Promised not to repeat the same mistakes of years past, sources confirmed Wednesday that the Stanchfield family was saving time this Thanksgiving by making their oak dining table the day before. “Grandma insists the fresh is better, but going ahead this year will save a lot of stress,” said Kevin Stanchield, who recalled the anxiety and pressure he faced every year when he woke up to cut the wood. holes to be drilled, fasten screws, cut and trim the aprons and fasten the legs. “Usually I’m so tired of standing on my feet all day that I can barely hold a hammer at the end. With all that sanding and staining, it’s sometimes 7, 8pm before we’re even ready to sit down. Not to mention how frustrating it is when you’re in a rush and a seat turns out to be wrong.” At the time of going to press, the family had resigned to pick up a cheap table at Boston Market after realizing theirs had been destroyed beyond repair.
