Reclaimed Wood Bookcase

Hi Friends! Today I'm joining my Power Tool Girl Crew to bring you a simple project I did using power tools! I love these group challenges because they motivate me to get stuff done!

DIY Reclaimed Wood Crate

Hi lovely people! It's time for my Tool Girl Crew and I to break out the power tools and build something! This month's challenge is to make something out of wood for Fall. My first thought was a sign, but then I decided I needed something for entry way table to add a little something there for Fall. Here is what I started with: A 1X6 and a cheap fence picket, both from my curbside fence picket score, and a spindle I salvaged from this weird half chair I found at a thrift store forever … [Read more...]
