(Or, why I should never be allowed near hardware).|
Just spent the last 2-and-a-bit hours building a chest of drawers.
4/6 drawer backs have been routed on the wrong side - which makes them impossible to assemble.
*And* one of the screws for the front decoration is missing...
I'm not going to try and build the wardrobe alone, it's obviously too unwieldy. However I did unpack the bits, and one of the feet is obviously AWOL.
Tomorrow then will involve some very careful drilling so that I can use the drawer backs, backwards, and a hunt for a screw (shush in the peanut gallery).
Not hugely impressed by their QC.
I suppose I should go get the laundry in (oops) and make my bed.
Oh, and as I type I notice I've gained a large hole in the back of my right hand.
Damnit, ESC :w doesn't save LJ entries
