I have always been hopeless with wood, whenever I try to cut or measure it there is a disaster. This usually ends with swearing or bleeding so, not surprisingly, I tend to avoid it. If Gill and I are having a dolls house club day I am very occasionally persuaded to have a go, but Gill usually does all the measuring, and some of the cutting. She knows not to hold wood when I am cutting, the president of my UK dolls house club once did this in an effort to prove I was not hopeless, and finally admitted he was wrong after first aid had been given to his cut fingers!
However I do quite enjoy putting kits together, as long as they are not too complicated, and I can get a decent result. This chair was fine except it fell apart a time or two, all my fault as I used the wrong glue and it did have to travel 1000 miles in the move to Spain.
Lots of big mini hugs to everyone
