Project Manager eventually sighed and told me to get on with whatever I felt comfortable with. The options being:
- measuring wood
- sawing wood
- drilling and screwing wood
Drilling and power-screwdrivering, however, are slightly different - I avoid them. I don't ever approach them with the required confidence and assertiveness required with power tools which means that drill holes and screws go wonky, putting me off even more. I don't think I'm scared of them - although I do occasionally have visions of power tool type incidents floating in front of my eyes. Gruesome, I know.
Anyway, after doing more measuring than PM was ever going to keep up with having to do both sawing and fixing jobs, I decided to 'man up' and do some sawing. Pah! I got sacked from that as PM had to come back with all my lengths and trim them.
I looked around, went to the loo, got some beers in then faced up to the fact that I was going to have to do something. So I went for the circular saw. Which, oddly, I enjoy using - given that it's a very powerful power tool which could lead to terribly gruesome incidents...
