Ultimate Workbench – free building plans

I’ve built the ultimate workbench with room for both your table saw and mitre saw (as well as outfeed space) and plenty of storage and room to grow. Free building plans here.

My Ultimate workbench has been months in the making and will likely continue to evolve for months to come as my needs change.  That’s what’s great about these workbench building plans – I’ve created a perfect saw station complete with a recessed table saw section and outfield table, as […]

Hot Glue Gun Holder

Keep your craft room tidy and surfaces free of hot glue with this simple, scrap wood hot glue gun stand.

I post to Instagram and Facebook stories every now and then and was thinking – “but my blog friends can’t see what I’m up to!” so I thought I’d incorporate a short video or two into my posts so that you can see just how weird and wonderful I am my days are.

Last week, in the throes of a divorce and […]

#OrganizeThis – Small parts bins

Get your workshop organized without breaking the bank by making your own small parts bins to house screws, nails, bolts, and hardware – better still, attach them with a french cleat system for easy removal and return.

Good morning everyone!

It’s a GREAT morning – mainly because I’m part of a group challenge today called #OrganizeThis.  Seventeen of the best DIY Bloggers in the business were put to the challenge to organize an area of their home that has become out of […]

I FINALLY have a build to share with you today!

I started these Do It Yourself (DIY) nightstands at the end of January, but with recent events, a trip to Florida and two girls with extensive dental work, they took a back-burner to more pressing items.

I got them done though!  Final coat of paint […]

Swapping out bathroom sconces

Changing out lighting isn’t nearly as difficult as I thought.  In truth, it’s a matter of taking off the old fixture, attaching 3 wires together and then screwing the face plate into place – couldn’t be easier!

Have I ever mentioned that I hate fixing things?

I do.  I’d rather build something completely new than fix something that’s broken.  I can’t explain it other than to say that I don’t find gratification in fixing something that’s broken – or at least not […]
