Wood from mango tree

My house has 5 mango trees. I heard my mother tell that my dad planted these mango trees when I was born. These mango trees grew up with me. When I was 5 years old they were just as tall as me. Now they are 3 times as tall as me. They were associated with my childhood  Each summer is coming.  I often asked my neighbor’s friends to climb mango trees to take mango fruit.  We often take unripe mangoes to eat with soup. Its taste is so delicious. My parents and grandparents often wait for ripe mangoes to eat  On days of power outages. I often brought a hammock tied to a mango tree to sleep.The light breeze blowing when lying under the tree makes me feel more comfortable. Moreover, I often play a lot of games around mango stumps with my friends like mandarin square capturing, Hide and seedling man’s buff,…  Although, I don’t have a lot of time to play and talk with my friends as before. We are becoming more and more distant  But I will never forget that innocent time.

Unfortunately, My father plans to cut down 5 mango trees. He wanted to build another house for my brother. When he gets married. I don’t want my father to cut them.  They are full of childhood memories that I don’t want to forget. But I don’t know how to do.  Seeing me sad, my dad told me that he would use the wood of the tree to make me a new desk. Heard I am very happy. I comforted myself. Mango trees will always be with me. My father also intended to use the remaining wood to make necessary supplies for my brother’s new home.

The process of cutting wood and soaking wood wasted a lot of time. So, after one month, my father just started making them. My father asked me to work with him. My father said there was a lot of work to do. He will not be able to complete on time for my brother’s wedding. I am very willing to help him. I love this woodwork very much. I used to make myself a wooden pen box. I have known how to use some woodworking tools and equipment.

My father and I work together very effectively. For example,  When my father is cutting wood with hand saws. I will stand by and read to my father on the Woodworking books for the beginner the easiest way to cut wood. Therefore, my father only took about 30 minutes to cut the wood into sections. The next stage, when my father used a Makita Drill to keep the edges together. Moreover. He also uses a hammer to make the edges stronger and more beautiful.  I will use sandpaper to rub the wood. In the final steps. I found these items quite simple. Therefore, I used wood chisel (I have known how to use it from my carpenter friend) to decorate more patterns for the furniture becomes more delicate and lively.

After exactly one month. My father and I finished a desk for me, a dining table, a kitchen shelf, a wardrobe for my brother. Although it was hard, both my father and I were very happy. Wood from mango trees helped my family save some money. With that money. We can buy other necessities things for my brother’s wedding.

On my brother’s wedding day, most attendees complimented the furniture that my father and I made. They were also surprised to hear that we only made them only for a month. Some people even suggested my father make them some furniture like my brother’s. But my father did not agree. My father told my father not to have much time to do it. And I will test in grade 10. My father wanted me to focus on studying. But when seeing me sad. My father added after I finish the exam, my father and I will work together to make wooden furniture for them.  I was extremely happy when I heard my father say that. I will try my best to complete the test well.

The more I learn about carpentry. the more I love it . It helps my father and I become closer than before. Above all, it helped me reduce a lot of stress after hard lessons. Why don’t you try making any things you want? You sure you will love making it like me
