"I ran into a similar situation this weekend while building a radiator cover with 1/2" slats.  I ran out and purchased the Kreg Mini Jig and it works like a champ.  It tells you in the directions that if you want to be able to fill or…"

"Thanks Leslee.  I can't agree more; very easy on the back and it keeps most critters out as well.  I didn't put a finish on the wood at all.  There was some concern amongst the chiefs in my house about chemicals from any…"

Radiator Covers

Self-explanatory. Building radiator covers for the house. We used to have a mix of old wooden radiator covers and metal ones from the 70's. None of them looked good in our 1932 Colonial home so I decided to make our own match our arts and crafts…

Raised Cedar Planter

" I made 4 raised planter boxes about two summers ago out of reclaimed wood from an old house that was torn down. I do like your box Micheal, it reminds me of my 4 boxes that I made to hold my garden in. I like the raised bed because it is…"

What's one interesting fact about you, your life, your garage, shop, or home?
My shop is my garage. Unfortunately, the concrete floor was laid in 1932 and it has differences of 6 inches in height from the edges from soil erosion underneath the slab. Needless to say, all my workbenches and homemade storage sit on carriage bolt levelers. Makes for an interesting build process.
