DIY that adds Value to your Property #1: DIY adds more value you think

04-22-2015 06:20 PM by Katies_DIY_Blog | 134 comments »

I’m relatively new to this whole blogging thing so please bear with me if this article isn’t quite up to Shakespearean standard just yet! This is my first blog post so I thought I’d make it about something that’s been interesting me as of late. Firstly, my main job is a real estate agent. So I guess you can say my main job is slightly boring! However, the last 3-4 years of so I’ve actually started taking up small DIY jobs in and around the house. My boyfriend has never been very good with thi...

Bending flashing without a brake

03-13-2012 10:57 PM by Craftsman on the Lake | 7 comments »

This is a simple video that will show how I bend flashing for a small job. A brake is nice but if you don’t bend stuff much then having one is a luxury that isn’t needed much.

Call before you dig this spring

04-09-2009 04:06 PM by DigSafely | 4 comments »

Thanks for letting me post here, Michal! I just wanted to remind all the handymen and women out there that April is National Safe Digging Month across the country. National Safe Digging Awareness Month is dedicated to informing gardeners and DIYers about the importance of calling 811 to have their buried utility lines marked before they dig. An underground utility line (think natural gas, cable, fiber optics) is accidentally struck once every TWO minutes in the U.S., and these accidents can c...

Melamine Part 2: Apply Edge Banding

01-30-2013 04:52 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 6 comments »

I just finished up the video for applying edge banding to melamine. This video follows Part 1 on how to get clean cuts in melamine, which can be quite a challenge without the right blade and techniques. Once the melamine is cut, often it will need to have edge banding applied. So I cover this topic in Part 2. I could have made a 2 minute video that shows me applying a piece with an iron and trimming the excess, but that can leave a person with a lot of questions. In these videos, you no...

Tips for Designing and Finding Inspiration

09-14-2013 05:56 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 16 comments »

With the release of my latest article in WOOD magazine on design, it prompted more requests for a video on designing and how I find inspiration. In this video I share the lifestyle habits I have that allow me to keep finding inspiration, recording those ideas, and developing the designs. For an example, I share how I turned a Japanese torii gate into a stairwell barrier, bucking the standard design of newell posts, balusters, and handrail. While the subject of designing can get pretty d...

New house building project #4: Glass doors for the 6 medicine cabinets

09-07-2008 07:06 AM by PaBull | 9 comments »

Today I was busy making the glass doors for the medicine cabinets for all the bathrooms in the house. I thought I might as well share the fun with you guys. First thing I had to do after I cut the styles and rails, was make a jig to do the coping on the router table. My router table is build in with the table saw, very basic. Here some pictures of that jig. The pictures are not the best, I took them with my PDA, sorry. The jig rides against the edge of the table. Now here...

Adobe brick making #2: Some adobe brick abodes

02-18-2009 01:01 PM by daltxguy | 7 comments »

As part of my adobe brick making series, I thought I might show some examples of what an adobe brick building might look like. I guess most people might imagine that an adobe brick building must necessarily look like came out of the southwest US but not so. Mudbrick has been used for centuries and there are far more mudbrick homes than you probably imagine. Many of them look like any other building that you are used to seeing. I’ve chosen to limit my pictures to homes built here i...
