One of the things that I have been meaning to get to on my long list of to-do items is to move my son out of his twin sized bed into a queen size. He has really put on a growth spurt over the past few years, and that twin bed makes me think of Snow White trying to get comfortable in one of the dwarfs’ beds. Thank goodness he didn’t want anything too extravagant! He was more than pleased with this easy DIY modern platform bed.
If you regularly do any type of woodworking or painting, you have probably had to use a solvent to clean your brushes. Whether you use paintbrush cleaner, mineral spirits, or paint thinner, at some point you will be faced with the issue of what to do with the leftover materials. Since we can’t pour these chemicals down the drain, and we shouldn’t pour them out on the ground, what exactly do we do with them? If you have ever wondered about this issue, keep reading, and I will share my method on how to store and dispose solvents. It’s much easier than you think!
I have mentioned a few times, over the past month, that I have been working on my office/studio. I almost have everything exactly the way that I want it, except for the fact that I could use a bit more organization. I have so many magazines and binders that I need to keep, but as you know, magazines can cause a very cluttered looking design. Well, there was nothing for me to do but to get busy assembling some holders, but it makes for a good post! So, let me show you how to make magazine holders in a simple and easy fashion!
Hello again, all of you lovely DIYers! I have my friend, Dale, back with me, today. He just finished making this beautiful cutting board for his daughter, and we thought we would share this project with you. It is perfect for any beginner, because you can do it without needing any of the big ticket items that are necessary for a lot of projects. Also, you can really impress your friends and family with this beautiful piece. So, are you ready to learn how to make a cutting board???
If you have a miter saw, you may have noticed that sometimes your cuts just aren’t as accurate as you would like. Typically, this isn’t obvious until you are in the process of assembling a project – usually that very last piece – and you notice that the fit isn’t as tight as you would like. This can be very frustrating, but the good news is that your problem most likely stems from your miter saw needing to be calibrated. This is something that needs to be done from time to time. Good news! I am going to show you how to perform a miter saw maintenance for accurate cuts.
