I was made to be a do it yourselfer. I am not a professional, or have any training, but I love making things myself so I’m trying to learn as I go. This is a DIY blog where I show my finished projects and give instructions if they don’t exist, and my advice as a novice if they do. Be warned: I don’t take professional looking photos, and I’m dyslexic so the spelling and grammar could be better. Enjoy!
What would you make if you were given a 2.5' x 2.5' piece of glass with your company logo sandblasted in the center? ...this was the dilemma I faced when a sample piece of glass was going to be discarded and I asked if I could have it instead. After thinking on it, I came up with the idea of turning it into a water fall.
John Heisz has been nice enough to allow me to use this tutorial as a guest post for his website! So instead of posting the step by step tutorial here, you can find it on John's website *here*
Thank you so much to John for reaching out to me.....it means the world to me.
I relocated a speaker in my shop to a different wall and while I was at it, I decided to make a simple wooden shelf for it to sit on so I could toss the ugly metal brackets I was using before. I made this shelf to fit my speaker, but you can vary the dimensions to fit whatever it is you're needing a shelf for.
I just got in from my shop and I tell you what...it is really coming together. I am having too much fun transforming it into an organized and functioning work space. Check out my latest project that helped it along another step....
I've said it before but I'll say it again...around here what Momma wants, Momma gets. So when she called me asking if I could "maybe....possibly....in your free time...." build her a porch swing...of course, I said yes.
Take a look at how it turned out then I'll give you the run down on how I did it.
Hey! Sorry for the stretch of silence on my end. It has been unusually cold in north Texas and I haven't been wanting to get out in my shop and freeze. Buuut, I have been able to get some things done here and there when the sun decided to come out. One thing I did was finally build a storage system for my corded power tools. I did a lot of looking around but decided that the french cleat system was the direction I wanted to go.
I was using a cabinet up to this point, but I'm not a huge fan of cabinet storage so when I first saw this thing called "french cleat system" in Family Handyman, I knew it was the exact thing I wanted to build to store my tools. It's taken me a few months to get around to it....so many projects, so little time and all that....but now that it's in, I can't be more pleased. I love how visible and accessible it makes my tools, and how flexible the overall system is.
