Womp Womp: Man's Carpentry Project Falls Apart As He's Just About To Finish

June 1, 2018

In life in a nutshell news, this is a video of a man constructing a headboard and nearing completion when all the wooden pieces he's already placed fall to the ground like the ending to the saddest game of Jenga. What the hell was holding them in place, toothpicks? This isn't a finger sandwich, bro, this is a headboard. "Now I want a finger sandwich." Me too! I'm thinking turkey and swiss, what kind do you want? "One with the knuckles and fingernail removed." Okaaaaay, I'm gonna call the police now.

Keep going for the video. Also, I wish I could laugh but I've never ended a carpentry project not in the hospital. Double also, as commenter Ollie Williams pointed out, you can see the clamp at the bottom fail, causing the crash.

Thanks to David D, who agrees this guy still has another failure to live through before third time's a charm.

  • Table wakeboard is still amazing even after I just left that link. lol

    Not sure what his goal was but maybe a nail or glue to start would have helped. Especially if he was going wake boarding on it later.

    Different story. This one's about a window jumping off a skyscraper. Or something. I don't know. I don't read these posts -- I just come for the ads.

    BRAVO on the anger control!
    I would've flipped my shit!

  • roehlstation

    Pssst. lay it down and do it that way

  • Jenness

    That moment after the disaster where he just stood there looking up at the sky, back stiff as his breath left his chest, right before he dropped the one piece left in his hand as the disgust & rage took over.

    We've all been there dude. *sympathetic nod*

    0:24 TA-DAAAA! I'm an asshole!
    I can say it doing TITANIC's Rose impression with wind blowing in ma face.

  • Jenness

    That's exactly what he was doing. LOL

  • Meh

    What was the point in the first place. How was that useful in any way?

  • WhiteEagle2

    What was his plan here? Get everything in place and then nail/glue/epoxy them in place?

    If that was his plan, he could have at least laid the whole thing down as you planned it out like I did:

    B-E-A-UTIFUL!

  • WhiteEagle2

    I understood that reference.

  • Doog

    I understood that reference!

    He nailed it. Or didn't in this case...

  • Mark

    I think it was faked. How could he have gotten that far without a support piece across the bottom?

    My guess is he waited until he was almost done and the friction/side load of all of the pieces were holding themselves together...until he pretended to put that "last piece" in at the top and he applied a little extra pressure down.

    Not only that, but the person filming didn't even seem that phased by it because there was hardly any camera shake.

    Also it seems like fimed from security footage screen.

  • Ollie Williams

    You can see in the video the clamp holding the bottom to the board failed.

  • Wooder

    This guy needs some wood glue or just a handful of nails for his birthday.

    I think his anger management course is working.
