Was going to put t5s in but got these 8 8' t8s for free. Installed them yesterday. 4 going down the middle and 2 on either side.

Cell phone pic does not do it justice.

I got an old maple butcher block top from my work that was beat to shit. There was about 15 - 1/2” and 3/4” holes in it from mounting vices to it, deep gouges, some cuts, and a bunch of finish nails in it. I pulled as many nails as I could, filled the holes in with oak dowels, belted sanded the shit out of it, trimmed off about 1/2” on each long edge, routed the top and bottom edges. Finished off by finish sanding everything and then 3 coats of poly stain.

Mounted up 2” black pipe, that I cleaned all of the forge slag off of and painted with a black tinted clear coat. This desk is a beast, has to weigh like 250 lbs 35” wide and 72” long. Rock solid piece for the home office.

I need to up my chair game now

Our garage entry way needed a shoe storage solution and a place to put on shoes. Grabbing the shoes and walking into the kitchen to sit down was growing old. I built this with instructions off of the BuildThisFixThat website, pretty cool shit. I spent right around $100 for all of the material to build it. This is way better quality for anything you might buy at the store and cheaper to “boot”!

Also forgot to mention I used the Kreg pocket screw system and the shit is AMAZING. Such a clean professional look when it is done.

I love that he posts model numbers.

I love having a shoe rack bench for all the reasons you described. It was one of the first things I bought for our house.

The hedge trimmers are nice, especially when you don't have to drag a cord!

I have the 20V lawnmower, the thing is awesome. The only drawback is the run time with the batteries it comes with, 5.0 Ah. For me it is not a big deal because I just throw some 9.0 Ah batteries in and it cuts about 3/4 of the lawn. I have just under a 1/4 acre.

It's funny when you read the negative reviews on the mower...



"The mower works great but I cant cut my entire yard on one charge!"


Did people really think they would be able to do a full yard on a charge?!?!?


My concern now is that I have a dead FlexVolt battery, it only charges one of the rows of cells. I haven't used it that long, and only charged it maybe 20 times. Hopefully this isn't a big issue, since I'll be buying more of them soon.

Thanks Rich!

The top, legs, front shelf runners and side runners are all made from select pine. I used sanded plywood for the shelves and sides. I painted the whole piece with 2 coats of some white semi gloss house paint I had laying around and then did another 2 coats with semi gloss spray paint.

For the top I used a walnut colored poly stain, like 3 coats applied with an old t-shirt. It is the same stuff I used on my desk I made.
