Default Man + DIY = Manly Heaven

Well people, today I bought my first drill and first woodsaw...

Did some DIY around the house; drill a hole here, cut the wood of there, install a new TV and PS in the room for the boy...

I feel like the first neanderthal who discovered fire...

I'm even thinking of bringing my drill to one of those BE night outs...

Confuscious- It's quite liberating isn't it!?!

wait til you get your first circular saw! I have to stick on a false moustache and side burns to feel manly enough! But oo the power-

As for nail guns....

Well, I thought I was shit, but the endresult proved otherwise - the TV is still intact and not on the floor in broken pieces...

Fire...I never had the pleasure, apart from BBQ pit firing...
