  1. Built-In Cutting Board

    An Easy Upgrade to Your Kitchen There is a pretty nice kitchen in this old house that my wife and I have here.  I like the way they did the kitchen.  It’s a small kitchen, so you always have the countertop full when you’re making a meal, there isn’t a lot of room.  The way they built this really is...

For starters, the Compact 33 series, is a dye cast, self-closing hinge from Blum that replaces the Compact 31 series. The only difference between these two, is the hole profile on the hinge cup, with the pattern...
  3. Uses for Milk Paint

    Milk Paint to Make the Best Petunias I used milk paints to paint a walking stick that I carved.  It was a pretty nice stick and it looked really sharp when I got done painting it.

    I’m in the process of building a set of cabinets in the basement, and I am going to make them out of nice shiny, white melamine coated, high-density particle board.  Now, I don’t particularly like building stuff out of melamine, but it does have a really nice advantage of being white, and in my basement, it is going to brighten...
