Fold-Down Cutting Rack

There was no room in my basement shop to cut full sheets of plywood. I always had to have the home center guy cut it down to size with his panel saw. What a hassle. I wanted my own panel saw, but I knew there was simply no room in my shop or budget. Then I came up with the solution: a lightweight, fold-down …

I wanted a countertop in the laundry room, but didn't want to spend a lot of money. I looked at a couple different options (for example, a desk top from IKEA and the butcher block countertop from IKEA) but decided to go with the plywood.

World map. I got a 4x8 sheet of half-inch plywood cut into thirds at Home Depot to end up with 3 pieces of 32x48" -- a good size to fill the empty wall in the dining room.

DIY large scale plywood word art

One of the many DIYs in our master bedroom - and probably one of my favorites - is the word art over the bed. I wanted to use my own handwriting to make it even more personal to us, but you could just skip the first couple of steps and use a font and then the whole project can probably be made using Word or a similar software. Here is how I turned my handwriting into something that I could print and cut out on a large scale. I wrote out my word a couple of times on a scratch pad. You can ...
