Yard Gate #1: Side Gate Mounted

1383 days ago by MostlyHarmless | 4 comments »

So the wife demands gates for our new home, and being a 7 year marriage veteran, I knew this to be my opportunity to purchase some cool toys and get my hands into this exotic world of carpentry. Unfortunately, I only have the slightest of ideas on the intricacies of building with wood. But as luck would have it, I know how to find the answers I need. And so began my quest, which after stressing friendships, watching videos, reading magazines and lurking forums, leads to where we are today....

Kids' Play Center #1: Choosing a Plan

2227 days ago by Olaf Gradin | 6 comments »

For my son’s fifth birthday, my wife and I decided to check into an outdoor structure for him to play on. I’ve gone back and forth in my mind about this; I didn’t have one growing up, there are nice parks within a 15 minute drive, and he’s an only child at this point. On the other hand, I would love to build this for my son. There are plenty more pros and cons to weigh, but this story is more about the fact that we have…more or less…decided to build. Th...

Outdoor (Insulated) Generator Box Build

1250 days ago by MayflowerDescendant | 13 comments »

When my wife and I relocated from Southern Ontario to the West Coast of British Columbia, we (by-and-large) left cold and snowy winters behind us. While it was easy to adjust to a more temperate, albeit wetter, climate, the occasional coastal windstorm (with winds up to 100 km’s/hour or 60 mph) can easily disrupt your hydro / power supply. Even though the power lines in our area are all underground, we are “fed” from areas where the power lines are above ground. Trees / l...

Outdoor Furniture #9: Finally Finished!

688 days ago by Retsof | 7 comments »

It took me nine days from start to finish, but I’m finally done with my Adirondack Patio Set. I am really tired of painting too! The chairs are sitting by the pool where they and I will be spending Memorial Day. Hunter and Huckleberry, my English Springer Spaniels, approve. Can anyone tell me if there is a way to format my photos so the right 1/3 of the picture doesn’t get cut off when I link them in my blog? If not, I guess I’ll have to make sure all the im...

Outdoor Furniture #11: Patio Planter Boxes - Continued

667 days ago by Retsof | 0 comments »

I’ve made a lot of progress on this project, but I’ve been so busy since the kids got out of school for the summer, that I haven’t had much computer time lately to update my blog. Here I have the three piece legs glued up and I’m testing the fit of the tenons. In this photo, I’ve finished the sanding all the parts, have the tenons glued into the legs, and have the panels installed. Now they are starting to look like planters. One of the changes I ma...

Outdoor Movie Projector Caddy

84 days ago by bbenack00 | 0 comments »

Our family likes to have outdoor movies on warm Friday nights. I’ve already built a projector ‘screen’ (piece of plywood painted white and framed with stained deck wood), and have had to construct a projector base out of a plastic storage bin (which contained the projector, the large speaker, and associated cordage) flipped upside-down and propped up to the appropriate angle. My thought is to build the attached image out of PTL. There are no measurements yet as I’m ...

Outdoor Furniture #1: First Time Building An Adirondak Chair

697 days ago by Retsof | 0 comments »

My old patio set has seen better days. It was a pretty inexpensive set that I picked up when we lived in Phoenix fourteen years ago, so I guess I got my money’s worth out of it. Anything that last fourteen years in the Phoenix and Las Vegas sun is pretty amazing. :) I looked into the cost of replacing the slings on four chairs and a chaise lounge and I’m not sure it’s worth doing. Since I have the time and the tools, this is the perfect opportunity to take a crack at bu...
