How To Size Your Shoes Properly

good footwearIf you want to buy shoes without being able to try them (something that happens), it is good to have your measurements on hand to make sure you make the right choice.

Once you know them, making a mistake becomes almost impossible.

But first … the question that everyone asks: “What is the relationship between the size of the shoes and the size of my foot? They could not have used cms rather than odd sizes?! ”

Ah … that I can help you with!

In fact, the metric system did not exist when shoemakers started making shoes. They used the old systems, which equals 0.6cm … This way of measuring has spread all over Europe, with the exception of the United Kingdom and Italy, which use their own measurements.

And that has not changed since! But do not worry, I’ll show you how to get around this difficulty so you can order shoes without trying them, no matter what measure you use.

The length of the foot. It’s about measuring your foot, from the end of your heel to the end of your larger toe.

If you are alone, measuring your foot can be complex (and asking a friend to measure your foot can be a bit odd …).

There is a solution: measure with a sheet of paper and put your foot on it. Make a pencil mark at both measurement points. Then you take the average and you can move on to choosing a good pair of tough footwear.

Is It Ok To Build a Table Yourself?

For a few years, my wife and I wanted a coffee table (square) but bigger than the one we bought when we moved in.

We wanted a table a bit like the ones that are sold at department stores and Ikea.

Having discovered a real passion for woodworking and carpentry, it was the opportunity to put into practice my knowledge acquired on the forums or through some YouTube vids.

Especially since I had never really worked on “massive” wood.
The oak is one of the wood species that we prefer, I took the first step .. to buy the basic material.

Right materials, Dimensions of the table were = 90x90x44cm.
I realized that I would need a lot of power tools, which was no problem. I have a good table saw already. For table saw guides visit The Saw Critic. If you’re ready to buy I would recommend the DeWalt DWE 7491RS, I’ve had this one for years.

So everything started with the purchase of planks planed at (200x18x2cm) in solid oak: I then cut them to spec and followed the instructions in the videos. 2 solid weeks later I had done it! Building a table yourself doesn’t have to be that hard, you just need to go at it all the way and watch some tutorials.
