Woodwork, carpentry or cabinet-making has been an industrious trade for many, many centuries. And is it not true that this trade has been in existence for thousands of years? From the very beginning, woodwork would have been mostly geared towards providing primitive or pioneering families, communities and tribes with shelter in the form of cottage-like cabins. And still to this day, this traditional and cultural trade will be working its way up your staircase or bannister.
And what would you know? Today it also makes its way to the poolroom or the man cave. The man cave is that converted basement or garage preserved for the playful use of guys only. And the pool room is both public and residential. Most folks out for a bit of recreation, both the guys and girls, will have at least played one round of pool at their favorite watering hole. And still to this day, a great number of men, yes, it does seem to be mostly the guys, have dreamed of having their own pool room.
And it is usually the garage or basement that has been converted to such effect. But for many other guys, the preference will be for a wood poker table in the center of the man’s cave, perhaps replicating riveting scenes from the wild, wild west of well over a hundred years ago. But for the more studious and artistically inclined, there is always perfectly crafted dining room tables, chairs, settees and austere desks which can impose on the visitor if the user so chooses.
That desk might just be located upstairs in the attic, a private enclave if ever there was one. And to get there, you would be negotiating the wood-built staircase, not so?
