Master Closet Makeover

2018-07-31T23:21:09+00:00July 31, 2018|PROJECTS|

The master bedroom of our new home came with an empty, colorless master closet. It has no shelves and no rod. So therefore it’s not very useful for us right now. Due to Aniela’s unreachable standards of order and cleanliness, however, she went ahead and invited our friend Cristina to fly over from Florida to [...]

2 Years of Blogging

2017-07-19T08:30:00+00:00July 19, 2017|PROJECTS|

It's been 2-3 years since I started this website and began to post regularly. There is still so much that is evolving in this effort. But every little thing I'm learning, I believe, is an important part of the process. I'm going to write all about my experience with blogging and this website, but I [...]

Some Things in Life Can Never Be Rushed

2/27/16 - I've been waiting for this day. All throughout February I've been looking for some time to get out in the backyard to start building a blue desk for the office room of our house. But this is not the kind of project you can easily do on the side. It takes a long time [...]

Simple Sawhorse Worktable

I don't have a garage. It's a considerable challenge to make progress on my projects without a decent place to do the work. A carpenter can have all the fancy tools in the world, but they're not very useful to him without a proper place to use them. A simple car garage is the ideal [...]
