MAKIN' BISCUITS or WOODWORKING CLASS, PT. 1
I recently started a woodworking class at El Camino College and am learning SO. MUCH. Students are allowed to make what they choose and my inspiration is this TV stand that is back-ordered till June from bludot. Yesterday I bought some lumber from House of Hardwood in Culver City.
