    DIY Modern Cat Scratching Post

    A while back we built a horizontal cat scratching post/pad and shared it on the blog. Mochi did use it, but the downside is she still clawed our couch too. Womp. So we built a modern vertical cat scratching post that slides over the arm of our couch, hoping that giving her something vertical to […]Read More »

    Wandel vs Heisz push stick comparison

    We’ve been doing more and more woodworking over the past year, and our arsenal of tools and equipment has grown steadily. We’ve always been pretty safety conscious (thanks to Evan, who always has to remind me to put on my eye/ear protection, respirator, etc) but with the increased dangerous-equipment-usage, we’ve been feeling the need to up our safety […]Read More »

    Simple DIY cutting board

    We’ve been wanting to get into hardwoods lately. We’ve done some “light” woodworking in the past (like this simple side table we made or our DIY marquee letters), but we’ve always just used whatever cheap wood we could find at Home Depot. Don’t get me wrong – there is a lot you can do with […]Read More »

    Garage storage ideas

    In our last garage post (and video) we covered part 1 of our garage series: how we patched, repaired, and painted our very sad looking walls. In today’s post, we’re covering how we turned that clean slate into something actually functional too. The goal: to be able to use this space as a workshop AND still […]Read More »
