Perhaps other ARRSERS share my inability to complete DIY tasks correctly? Confession time, what is the most mongish thing you have done trying to improve your house/car etc? I am sure I have probably done worse, but I recently built a load of flat-pack stuff. 1. I built my new swivel chair and managed to leave all the washers off and then when I realised this, I couldn't be arsed to redo it. (This is fairly embarrassing, as I used to be a supervising aircraft technician) One arm is already falling off. Good luck those in Lynx and Gazelles. 2. I built my beautiful oak veneer bedroom furniture, no problems apart from when I was gently hammering in the wooden dowel things and I accidentally hit too hard and not only ensured the dowel was sufficiently secure in its pre-drilled hole, but managed to knock it right through the entire piece, and had it sticking out through the now effing ruined veneer. Twice. 3. I opened my new dining chair boxes with a knife (even though it specifically instructed me in big letters not to) and managed to slash two of the seat covers. Any other DIY mongs out there? Be honest and share your failures. As with all my threads, posted in full anticipation if it ending up in the hole.
