It is all about putting ideas together, and seeing it through. Carpentry work is my other passion. Who need 20,000 dollar equipment set to assemble wood and nail tight for a rough garden table. Just a saw, a hammer, a crowbar, a T-square, a pencil, a measuring tape, nails, and definitely some pieces of wood. The end product may not look commercial like ikea/parkson/giant/court mammoth/house of deco/ version, but it sure is useful to put pots, scoops, garden scissors, fertiliser, pails.... It is a garden bench with trademark bangchik
When I set it out, it will be done in a day..... with lot of nail banging, and ocassionally kakdah had to come out to hold wood, or whatever when my two hands were occupied. She is so used to it, but I wonder what neighbours thought of loud nail banging........
The other day, the contractor came to set up iron T posts and cloth lines.
I persuaded him to get a few wooden pallets from the construction site nearby.
He drove his van and brought back 5 wooden pallets.
A sketch, a few hours work, loud nail banging,
and the carpentry work is ready
|wooden pallet is something like this|
|how i wish it to be known as bangchik's design|
|garden bench, lower shelf|
I manage to get two garden benches ready.
A little bit rough, but it is alright.
Kakdah had already mentioned about
sloping garden rack for her orchids...
another carpentry adventure.
