Hugo: Wow, when you said that you did some woodworking on the weekends, I thought you meant refinishing furniture. But this! This is a real workshop and you’re actually building furniture.
Shawna: Yeah, this is what I’m working on right now. I’m building a dining table and chairs.
Hugo: The grain is beautiful on this piece of hardwood. It certainly looks better than the plywood furniture I have in my house. What is all this?
Shawna: Just some basic tools: saws, chisels, and drills.
Hugo: And what is all this metal for?
Shawna: I’m adding some grillwork for the back of the chairs. I don’t usually do metalwork, but I’m keeping it simple.
Hugo: This doesn’t look simple. These pieces have been welded together, and is that used for soldering?
Shawna: You got it. When all is said and done, I’ll have a new dining room set with a large table and eight chairs.
Hugo: Wow, I’m impressed.
Shawna: Want to try your hand at it?
Hugo: No thanks. You see these 10 fingers? I’m rather fond of them.
