Posting Up

Well it’s been almost a full year since I’ve posted anything to the blog but I’ll hopefully be doing a lot more in the coming months. Over the last year I’ve completely finished my basement from start to finish so my spare time has gone completely to that project. I’ll be posting some of the…

Are You Not Entertained?

Well here is officially my first post of work I did for a customer. I had someone ask me to make a sign for their restaurant, unfortunately the restaurant wasn’t doing so well at the time so they weren’t able to continue on with the project. I did this with a good friend of mine who…

Hanging On

So in our new home we don’t have the best front door situation when it comes to hanging up our coats. The “hallway” closet is actually much further down the hallway from the front door so coats were getting thrown everywhere. My wife found a couple nice examples and I went to work. Here is…

Wayne Scott?

To quote a line from Marge on The Simpsons: “I read an article about wainscotting at the tire store. Did you know it’s not named after someone named Wayne Scott?” So this was something I wanted to do since the second I walked in the door of our new house. Our front room is really…

Stairway to Hell

Well, here was an example of a job that almost broke my will to ever renovate anything again. Since we put down the dark hardwood floor in our house my wife insisted that we change the stairs to match. I knew what was involved but I *never* thought it would be as painful as it…

Floored!

Well it’s been some time since I’ve posted an update on the blog but that’s because I’ve been busy as all get out and in the coming weeks there’ll be a flood of posts with the work I’ve been doing lately. We purchased a new house back in April and we got the keys in May….

And Now For Something Completely Different

  Well this is one more for my wife and although this wasn’t entirely up my alley it ended up being a fairly simple and cool project once it was done. This was another case of my wife desperately wanting to ditch the Ikea bedroom and grow up a little. Queue up a new headboard…

Cedar Deck With Some Style

Well I don’t even know what to say about the backyard of my very first house except that it’s small, cramped, and almost unusable. The owners before had made a god awful patio that I would’ve guessed had been through an earthquake. At some point in the beginning of our second summer here I was…

Fireplace

I finished this project almost 3 years ago now but this was probably the first legitimate woodworking project I did. I purchased an electric firebox insert for next to nothing as I wasn’t really a fan of the store bought fireplaces and I just built my first router table (incredibly rudimentary compared to my new…
