Someone who teaches themselves how to play the piano is called a savant, someone who’s IQ is over 140 is called a genius, a pitcher who can paint the corners of home plate for strikes is called a Rembrandt… me working with tools… that my friends is called a disaster! Yet, for some reason we continue to buy “things” for this house where assembly is required.
Today’s Project: assembling a shelving unit for the man cave (which is also now somehow turning into a mini playroom).
Parts included in the package: 48 – Parts I used to assemble: 36. Parts I lost: 8. Spare parts that didn’t belong to this particular project that were found: 2.
Tools needed: 1 Phillips head screwdriver, 1 small hammer. Tools I used: 2 Phillips head screw drivers, 1 flat head screw driver, small hammer, box cutter, needle nose pliers, 1 container of gorilla glue.
Estimated time of assembly: 45 minutes – Time it took me to assemble on the first try 30 minutes – Time it took me to disassemble and then reassemble after realizing I forgot to use the wooden dowels the first time: 65 minutes.
Over an hour later, with many new words muffled under my breath so Jax wouldn’t hear them and a missed family dinner we finally have our shelf (just don’t put anything on it, it’s really just for looks).
