Do It Yourself
|The “Do-it-yourself Movement” began with home decorating
but has since spread into a much wider field. Nowadays, there seem to be
very few things that cannot be made by the “do-it-yourself” method.
number of magazines and handbooks exist to show hopeful handymen of all ages
just how easy it is to build anything from a coffee table to a fifteen foot
(4.5 meters) sailing dinghy.
|Unfortunately, alas, it is not always quite as simple as it
sounds! Many a budding “do-it-yourself” has found to his cost that one
cannot learn a skilled craftsman’s job overnight.
How quickly one realizes, when doing it oneself, that a job which takes the skilled man an hour or so to complete takes the amateur handyman five to six at least.
And then there is the question of tools.
The first thing the amateur learns is that he must have the right tools for the job.
But tools cost money.
There is also the wear and tear on the nerves.
It is not surprising then that many people have come to the conclusion that the expense of paying professionals to do the work is, in the long run, more economical than “do-it-yourself”.
