Create a very smart and simple template

06-23-2018 10:27 AM by Project of the day | 0 comments »

Yesterday I wrote about how to build storage boxes in a very fast and efficient way. Important tools to creating these boxes so incredibly fast are my planer/moulder witch is planing the box sides. To make it easy and quick to set up the planer I create this style templates for my molding. To explain how I do, I made a video about it.Always make the template after the steel holder instead of the steel, leaving problems with round edges on the steel and obtaining a straight and fine edge for r...

Across the Bench from Charles #2: Devil's in the details

06-18-2018 03:30 AM by Monte Pittman | 15 comments »

Many things that I will probably cover are things that Charles has covered in videos on YouTube and his site. Always remember that he loves answering questions from folks and you can email him directly with them. So when I came, I wanted to dive in and learn how he does various things. So I bought a bunch of wood to build some simple projects to practice with. Boxes I always consider a good choice. You should always focus on every aspect of every project, but small projects like boxes emph...

Furniture: Cane Vs Wicker, Which One Is The Best When It Comes To A New Garden?

06-13-2018 02:07 PM by paulmatthews | 0 comments »

Given my big passion for DIY and design, renovating my garden when summer comes has always been a dream of mine even if sometimes I’m debating about which type of furniture should fit my outdoor living space. Last year I tried to combine the minimalistic design of wicker furniture with glass elements and it worked. This year, cane furniture will eventually win but I’m also debated on using wicker furniture once again. Wicker Furniture Creating wicker furniture is not that ea...

Shop stuff #126: Fixing up my wind chimes.

06-13-2018 12:27 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

A couple of years ago my favourite set of wind chimes bit the dust. I grabbed some pressure treated fence boards I re claimed and with that, a bit of good string, a few knots and time I brought them back in a video titled “The one where I show my Ding Dong”....that’s not too much into click bait territory is it?

Across the Bench from Charles #1: The beginning

06-11-2018 01:26 AM by Monte Pittman | 25 comments »

Most don’t know that I shut down everything in the Black Hills of South Dakota and moved 1650 east to the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia. About last Christmas I told my wife that it was time to do something else. There’s probably a dozen or more personal reasons for us leaving SD. Those are too lengthy and family stuff to get into. However, there were mainly a few professional reasons for the move that really forced the issue. The hospital where I worked for 38 years is currentl...

Great Companies to Deal With #1: CraftsmanHardware.com

06-02-2018 05:38 PM by Jerry | 4 comments »

CraftsmanHardware.com is a Customer Service Hero. Far too many times I’ve ordered items USPS priority or next day air only to have the order languish for several days before even getting processed for shipment, thereby completely negating my costly efforts to get said item at my doorstep in a timely manner. I ordered some Mission style cabinet door pulls from this outfit last Wednesday. Imagine my surprise when they showed up in my mailbox on Friday. These folks got my order out t...

Before and after #1: My kitchen improvment

05-24-2018 07:19 PM by Nadia | 3 comments »

Two years ago, I bought my second home alone after my separation. Having only one salary to pay the monthly payment and little time and knowledge in the renovation, I was advised repeatedly not to buy a house, but rather to opt for a condo. My idea was made: I could not afford to buy a new house, but I had my father join and semi-retirement to help me renovate. So I made several changes and here is my cooking before and after. Contrary to what one might think, the changes are rather...
