It’s been quite some time since I provided a new post. I have been heads down at my work, being a father and focusing on my woodworking and Instagram (@chawklit) whenever I had time. But with the holiday season upon us, and some requests from friends and family, I decided to show off this easy project where you can add some cool DIY art to your homes.
How to Make a Dog House from Left Over Material
If you are like me, you have a ton of left over material (wood, shingles, etc) lying around the house. With all this scrap material, I was able to build my golden retriever a dog house she would hopefully love.
Wooden Pallet Herb Garden
My wife had an idea to build a herb garden out of a used Pallet. She showed me some pictures from the internet, and it looked easy enough until I tackled the deconstruction of my first pallet.
Before deconstruction, I needed a pallet that would look good from the bottom, where the forklift usually picks up the pallet. I searched for a fairly new pallet with at worst, limited cracks or broken boards. You can find pallets at some large retail stores but I was able to find my at the local dumps. Just make sure you are allowed to take some so always ask before you start loading your truck or car.
