Thanks for visiting!

Welcome to!

I find satisfaction in doing things myself, whether it's woodworking, carpentry, landscaping, or a large home improvement project. I enjoy making things that meet my needs exactly that I could never find or afford in a retail store. On this site I try to document my projects with photos and how-to videos. I hope they provide you knowledge, inspiration, and perhaps a little encouragement to tackle DIY projects of your own.
