Wood art – scrap wood mosaic

This wood mosaic was made up of scrap wood pieces – all less than 5″ in length! If you’ve got bits of wood, you’ve got wood art.

This project my friends is a GREAT way to use up scrap bits of wood.

We’re talking teeny, tiny bits that you’ve held on to in the hopes that someday you *might need a 4″ piece of wood for something. 

Not you?  Yes, I have a problem 😂

I have been dying to try a wood […]

Pantry organizer for spice packets

Do you have dry mix packages cluttering up your your cupboards or pantry? This simple pantry organizer for spice packets will keep them organized.

I did a poll on Instagram recently about what content you would like to see more of on the blog.  Gratefully, the majority vote was “small builds”.  Whew!

There are some bigger builds coming this summer, but I was worried that I was letting you down with smaller projects, so it was a great relief to know I […]

Scrap wood nesting house / scrap wood birdhouse

Robins, cardinals, blue jays and doves prefer nesting boxes to traditional birdhouses. Simple plans for a scrap wood nesting house here.

I think robins are the stupidest birds.  They are endlessly flying in front of my car, dropping shit bombs as they panic.  I just don’t understand this suicidal tendency unless it’s plain ole stupidity.

I started yesterday by selling off my […]
