Last week, when I came home from school. I found a very modern black car at the gate. I wonder who comes. I entered the house. I saw my father sitting and talking to a strange man. Looking at that man is probably the same age as me. But I didn’t realize who he is?. He saw me staring at him. he smiled and approached me saying “don’t recognize me”. Then he took the photo that we had taken with together when we were young. I just remembered. He is called Dung, a childhood friend of mine. I didn’t meet him for about 5 years. I remember that he went abroad to study when we studied class 9. The day he left, I cried a lot. I very miss him. I can’t believe this is my friend. In the past, he had black skin and an ugly face. But now He is so handsome like a superstar of Korea with a while skin, a strange nose, and height on meter 9.
Later. I asked him to come into my room to speak freely. I forgot. This morning I taught late, I forgot to fold the curtain, my clothes were full on the bed. He went into my room and saw the messy things on my bed laughing and saying, “You are not different before”. I wanted to hit him. He always teased me like that.
We talked for a long time. He told me a lot of things when he was abroad. And I also told him many things about me. When he was about to leave, he gave me an extremely cute box. He told me that when he left, I just could open it. When I went to my room. I opened the gift package. I can not believe it. He gave me an extremely cute and unique wooden doll. I have never seen it before. When I press the button behind it. It can even sing and dance. I really like it. I called him immediately after that. I thanked him and made an appointment to drink with him tonight.
When we met. I asked him where he bought the doll so beautiful. He told that he was made it. I was surprised. He added. He studied carpentry abroad. This doll is the first product that he was made by hand. Although it was his first product, he created such a delicate and lively doll. I think he is skillful.
I asked him how he could make it. I want to try making a doll like that. I also really like carpentry. he was very happy to guide me. First, he asked me to read on Best Woodworking Books for beginners to learn about carpentry and wood products. I also know this web. That is so popular. I had listened to it from my friend. It is so useful for people who just study about carpentry. Moreover, He is very kind. He even lent me his wooden chisel. He said that he was afraid I could not cut wood by hand. So, he also helps me cut wood by hand saw.for me.
After about a week. I have finished my product. Many times I wanted to give up. I thought it was simple to do it. But when I started working. What a problem. I had to be meticulous step by step. I think the most difficult is at the stage of carving the doll’s body parts. Like eyes, nose, mouth, hands, feet. For example, when I carve the doll’s eyes. I want to make the most soulful and vivid eyes. So, it took me 2 days to engrave the perfect eyes. Fortunately, my friend – Dung is always beside me instructing and cheering me up. I am grateful for him a lot.
Only two days left. he is out of vacation. he must go back to study. I am very sad about that. I don’t know what can do to give him. After a night of thinking. I will make him a male doll look like him. I think he will be very surprised by my idea. I will do it now.
Why don’t you try to make something of wood for your friends or relatives? I am sure that They are very moving when see you making it by owns. Let’s try now!
