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.
雨果:不,谢谢 。你看到我这10根手指吗?我还想留着这些心爱玩意呢 。
