My dad's one of those people that excels at everything he does. When he took the TOEFL (an academic test for students outside the US to test their understanding of English to get into the Universities here)...he scored number one in his Province in China. He graduated Summa Cum Laude in his Ph.D of Electrical Engineering class and when he played soccer in college, he was the number one guy on his team. Until about 10 years ago, he has never picked up a drill or any other tool in his life. When I graduated from college, he wanted to get me a nice bed as a gift. He decided to take a look at Macy's but as he started to look at their prices, he decided that rather than buying me a bed, he can make one for me! Fast forward ten years and countless furniture projects later (including a deck project for our new house)...he brought me this today:
Facing the tv, the drawer is on top and there's a cubby at the bottom for magazines, books, etc.
On the other side, it's also functional. This side, the cubby is up top and the drawer is on the bottom.
And the drawers have a sliding sectioned tray for remotes and other small knick knacks. INGENIOUS!
I love my daddy! He's also in the process of making an extension to our kitchen cabinets, a console table for behind our couch, and cabinets for our laundry room. It'll take a while to get all of these projects done but once they're complete, I'll make sure to blog about it!
