How to make a calculator

Posted on

I had a dream where I learnt how to make a calculator from a scrap of wood and a Windows program. You too can follow these simple steps to make your own calculator from scratch.

It can either be raw wood from a tree, or a piece of scrap wood, for example, skirting board, shelving etc.

The calculator didn’t actually work after all that – I mean, it worked, but it didn’t get any sums right. But hey. I made it myself.

You can imagine my reaction…

I haven’t been able to look my computer in the eye all day today.
