2x4 Outdoor Sectional

Check out the full 31-day series of 2x4 projects We had family in town for a Memorial Day weekend full of food, walks, flower planting, and the occasional thunderstorm/tornado. It was a great weekend in spite of that last part. :) We also managed to knock out a little patio project while some very willing babysitters kept an eye on Baby B. I've had my eye on this outdoor collection (picture below) from West Elm, but it cost $149-279 per piece! That was never going to happen for us. So we…

DIY Pallet Cooler. @Angela Bepple

Two very different Christmas projects

I'm a very novice woodworker so keep that in mind looking at these projects. This is the first year I was able to give hand made items for Christmas. The first project is a "Cowboy Cooler" I made for my sister and brother-in-law. I made it out of pallet lumber. The spigot ties in to the drain on the cooler. No serious woodworking skills required for this one. http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/Heathicus/Woodworking/Projects/Cowboy%20Cooler/IMG_6736640x480.jpg
