Wall Unit & My Granddad
was speaking with
Garth, who was a friend of my granddad. Garth is in the funeral home
business and looked after granddad's funeral a few years
earlier. Garth spoke highly of my granddad's sense of humour and
carpenter skills, which brought back a lot
of great memories for me.
recall my granddad was a talented finishing carpenter. As a boy, I spent many
hours in granddad's shop where he showed me
how to use his tools. He still had some of his old hand tools from
the days he apprenticed
London Transport in England a half a
loved wood and taught me a lot about carpentry. He showed me how to tongue and grooved joints and how to dovetail
corners, something you don't see much in modern furniture anymore.
wanted to replace an old wall unit with something a bit nicer and hired me
to do the job because he knew my granddad. The
ceiling was angled and a bit tricky but as you can see from the before and
after pictures, I was able to build Garth's new unit to perfectly fit
was delighted with his new wall unit and I'd like to think granddad would
have been proud of my work.
