A Physical Day

Yesterday, my grandmother and aunts have moved to their new house. The actual size is smaller though on drawing it has a bigger floor area. But flats are smaller nowadays. My aunt has a few furniture to give away and since I'm in need of some additional furniture, I chose the cupboard for more space. But I have to make some changes to suit my needs.

Some will think, why alter, just buy another one. No need to waste time and money. It'll be good to learn something and try my hands on making something. Anyway, for guys, its better to be able mend or repair things at home. I met one guy who can't troubleshoot to switch on their aircon at home. He just need to switch on the main switch that's all. That's why, I should try my hand at repairs.

I went to Ikea to search for stuff and hope to brainstorm for ideas on how to alter the cupboard to maximise the space for my "newly acquired" cupboard. With the blueprint already formed up and the materials all in order, I start my alteration. Not having machinery, I'll have to do it manually. Sawing the timber is the hardest part. Almost take all my strength from me. Pictures speak a thousand words.

An empty cupboard with an old computer desk to use of recycling.

The final product after slogging for 6 hours. Now you see it.

Now you don't.
