I bought myself a decent work table for crafting last week. I managed to have it delivered yesterday along with the shelf I bought it with. The good (or bad?) thing about the furniture was that they needed to be assembled first. I was a bit worried but I remember having a bit of experience with following instructions to piece something together.
Despite being already 28 years old, this was going to be my first furniture assembly. Bitch please, I build gunpla kits. Still, I was scared of messing up the wood and laminating layer because this build involved a LOT of screws.
Having a manual on hand made it pretty hard to make mistakes, but I had to redo connects around five times. Most of the missteps were because the panels were facing the wrong way.
I’m not surprised that when I was done, I had the same sense of satisfaction I get when finishing a model kit build. I completely destroyed the wood and thread inlet of one drawer though. Now I have a dedicated work station, I can properly segregate and store my tools. All it needs now is a cutting mat.
I’m gonna try putting up the shelf tonight. I’m gonna need the space for all my upcoming figures.
