I couldn't quite justify throwing out a plank of wood just because it had broken in half. I mean, come on, we all know that's not my style. So usually, I'd put it aside for something else, but I'm having a shortage. I need more wood. So I decided to be brave and adventurous and tackle a woodworking skill I think it's high time I tried:
BOOM! It's definitely not perfect -- yes, there are tiny gaps and spaces where perhaps there wouldn't be if it was not my first time doing butterflies. But I feel very proud of myself, nonetheless. Though, it just about took me forever. Ugh. But time aside, I think I can officially call myself a woodworker now, eh? I'd like to think I just passed some unspoken woodworking test that grants me, oh I dunno, "wood-cred and mad respect yo", right? Right.
So anyway, today was productive and there are now three more, slightly larger than the last, floorboard cheeseboards up in the shop. See?
