Foot Pump Sink

This is a post I have been thinking about off and on for a while.  I just finished up the foot pedal part of it tonight and thought this would be a great time to document the whole project.  I certainly did not invent this design.  I referenced some that friends of mine have built, […]

Cutting and Coping Crown Molding. The easy way.
Cutting and Coping Crown Molding. The easy way.

Green Washing? You Decide
Green Washing? You Decide
