The wood master

NOR­MAN DEOGRACIAS

FHM (Philippines) - - Boost -

nor­man used to work in the bpo in­dus­try. but his in­born tal­ent even­tu­ally came through when he and his wife Jeiel started ren­o­vat­ing condo units to rent out through airbnb. fed up with un­pro­fes­sional car­pen­ters, nor­man de­cided to do it him­self. he en­rolled in a few wood­work­ing cour­ses in the u.s. and amassed a cool col­lec­tion of power tools (bought on­line, on sale). When­ever he needs ad­di­tional help, he gets on Youtube— usu­ally on the Wood Whis­perer chan­nel—to re­ceive “train­ing.”

to­day, when nor­man and Jeiel find that they need new fur­ni­ture for their units, nor­man goes to his garage and builds them. from scratch.

and here he is, show­ing you that you can do it your­self, too!
