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 […]

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.

To further encourage/endorse my non-scientific based opinion, did you know that robins uses nesting houses?  It’s a sort of birdhouse that doesn’t have the little circular opening, […]

Folding Lemonade Stand

Summer fun for the kiddos – and less of a storage headache for you – this folding lemonade stand can be set up, taken down, and tucked away by a 9 year old!

This is a sponsored post.  I was provided with a Nitro 20V Power Share WORXSAW 4.5″ cordless compact circular saw with brushless motor to test and review as part of this project.  All opinions are sincere and my own.
