When family is in town, what better way to spend time together than working on a Hexagon Shelf Project for our little baby girl. When I was young I used to help my father with some projects around the house. Sometimes it was installing flooring, or building a shed, or painting. Sometimes it was really boring work that I didn’t want to do because I was a brat (you know, like every kid). But I’ve always had fond memories of working late, ordering pizza, and finishing a project late into the night … Maybe that’s why I work that way […]
Our little baby girl will be born in a few weeks, so we decided to repaint her room. The original owners thought the this green was a nice color … I actually didn’t mind it … Until I saw the alternative. Now that I think of it, damn that green was ugly …
So the wife bought me a cookbook for Christmas: “Bob’s Burgers, Burger Book”. So, I got the hint. Build the damn cookbook holder Bobby! We’ve had this idea for a long time (by we, I mean Jenn), and I just didn’t have time (It was like the 4th or 5th thing on my imaginary to-do list). Here’s the book (after the jump), for anyone who wants to purchase (I’ts actually on special right now on amazon) It has some pretty epic Burger Recipes that I MUST try. Also, makes a great Backdrop for my Cold Brew Maker. The Bob’s Burgers […]
A long long time ago, Jenn & I make a lego spice rack. You can read about the making of the block on her blog. It was her idea and I only helped a little … So, after we decided to get rid of the old spices, we needed to upgrade this lego project and make more realistic legos … with a little secret … I decided to make this post into a GIF party … all the cool kids are doing it. And, having lots of repetitive motion hakes this the perfect post to GIFIFY! Drill all six caps […]
So I’m proud to announce (And I’m sure Jenn is also happy to hear this) Project side table is finally complete. Full Spec’s include: 52x Grade 5 1/2″ bolts w/ washers & nuts, 6x 4″ long structural wood screws, 20x conspicuous socket head cap screws, 1x door handle, 4x Concealed Spring Hinges, 1x 2″x4″ base, 1x entire elevator crate, 4x structural heat treated high carbon steel plates shaped and forged to suit (read I made lots of noise), 5x pieces of 4″x6″ construction site dunnage, 2x pieces 3/4″ plywood shelves, 4x heavy duty slide guides for shelving, 1 can of water based chestnut stain. […]
So, with the help of my faithful assistant, I finished my advent calendar for Jenn. We painted the little boxes each a different color of Christmas. I will add little magnets to the back of all the little corroplast boxes so that they don’t easily fall out. And I also need to fill them up with tones of goodies.
