What is Calabrese Engineering you ask ? What are the rules of Calabrese Wood Working ? Rule #1 never use rules or a ruler ! I found all this wood in the trash and crafted a computer stand / flat files for drawings to go near my drafting table so I can have a clear drawing surface and be online at the same time. I used no ruler at all and did all the measuring with the wood itself and eyeballed everything else. Yeah its a bit lopsided and make shift but that is the Calabrese style of building taught to me by my Grandfather he used no rulers either 🙂 Big Up’s to my band mate Leila Darabi’s Everyday Trash can I get a reblog ?
