Carpentry is a real man’s skill. Something I only partially learned from my Dad during my teen-age years. But came the corporate life, and a busy social life – and the old-school skill was lost.
But it doesn’t have to stay ‘lost’ forever. There was a time that I found it ‘painful’ to see wood scraps from my friend’s home project. After decades of not handling a hammer or saw, I just worked on it – intent of removing the scrap from sight – and producing something useful.
Alas, my first in the series of small DIY from-scrap projects – a small giraffe-themed short foyer table (that looks like a bench) of some sort.
|My Giraffe table. I only used angular to connect the 'legs' (back then I have not learned using wood glue), all parts were scrap plywood. +5 years and still alive, recently as our home's Christmas tree stand.|
