  2. 3 Bin Compost

    06/2010 - just found more photos of this project - those during the build. I got the plans on line after doing a "google" search for compost bins. I made this in 2007 and was my first project - a rather simple one at that. But two years later… it's still standing! The idea is that you put...
  3. Halloween Black Cat

    This week, with Halloween just around the corner. I wanted to make a simple DIY project. With me being a cat person, I had to make a Black cat decoration.

  10. No frills entertainment center

    My cousin is in the process of moving, and needed an entertainment center for his new place. He had some 3/4" birch ply left over from another project, so he asked if I could help him build a simple entertainment center for a flat-panel tv, DVD, and stereo. I said, "Sure, why not?" The deal I...
