I got a couple of pallets that someone was throwing away. I salvaged the wood and made this cool Chicago flag wall art. I think it turned out really cool!
My wife wants a worm bin for her birthday so I built her one. These are great for household composting. They don’t take up much room, are easy to make, and provide a nice supply of
worms for fishing compost for gardening.
I have an aquarium with live plants and I wanted to add CO2 injection so I made this yeast-powered CO2 reactor from a 2 liter pop bottle and some tubing.

My 1 year wedding anniversary is coming up and, traditionally, you are suppose to give your spouse paper for that anniversary but I decided to spice it up a bit and make a paper flower and embed it in resin surrounded by wood and turn it into a necklace for my wife. This is how I did it.

When we moved in to our current place, there was a spice rack installed in one of the cabinets but it was pretty high up and my wife had a hard time reaching it. We have a baker’s rack with a top shelf that seemed like a better place to store spices so I made a simple spice board-rack-thing so we could store spices in a more convenient place. This is how I made it.
I have an old, cheapo drill that I rarely use so I decided to turn it into a lathe. The lathe is made from 8 pieces of wood mostly 3/4″ x 3 1/5″ boards with one part made from a 3/4″ x 1 1/2″ board. It’s simple and easy and this video shows how I did it. It works quite well for turning cork.
