I’m really loving these garden projects of yours, Steve. Particularly when we got about 6” of snow yesterday… ;-)

Do you have to go to a specialty drywall store to get those drywall nails? Nice video. :)

Steve, your vids always put a smile on my face. And I really needed it about now. Thanks.

Kudos to a nice project too. You make it so real, with all the errors included. And you just laugh right through it. That takes real guts to put yourself out there like that week after week. Hey, you should carry some of those ‘Drywall Nails” on your website. I think folks would really scarf them up in a hurry. Oh, and you screwed and glued, but no tattoo? Thanks again for making me smile.

Well, I’ve got a problem. Even though I may have absolutely no inclination about building a certain project or are even interested, I still feel compelled to watch your video’s. Go figure.
