We recently bought a couple of recreational kayaks, and needed a way to store them. In order to safely and economically store them, I built some racks. Take a look at the project page for more details.

Dollhouse bed finished
I haven’t posted anything in quite a while, but at least I’ve got something done. Mia’s bed is finished! For more information, see the project page.
Geocache radius map tool
Ok, this is something that very few of you will be interested in, but I wrote a web application to help in placing geocaches. Geocaches can’t be placed to close to one another, so this tool can help you find which spots are off-limits. Take a look if you’re interested.
Cutting table complete
A fairly quick project I just finished was a “cutting table” for Dusty. I got to actually put some new woodworking techniques to use and had a good time working on it. It only cost about $50 to build, but it’s very sturdy and should hold up pretty well. View the project page for more […]
Tasker for Android
Earlier this year I got an Android phone (the Droid Incredible), a purchase I’m quite happy with. One thing I really like about the Android platform is it’s open nature. I know that’s become a trite sentiment, but compared to my iPod Touch, there are very few limits on my ability to tinker with the […]
Password-protected podcasts on Android
One of the first things I wanted to do when I got my Android phone was get my podcasts available to me without having to sync with my computer (as was basically required on my iPod Touch). There are a number of choices for “podcatchers” on Android, but many of them don’t handle password-protected podcasts. […]
My lawn mower video on CNN
Interestingly enough, my lawn mower video actually aired on CNN yesterday. I’m still surprised that people find it that entertaining, but a half-million viewers can’t be wrong! CNN Hottest videos gone viral
DIY cyclone dust separator for shop vac
A week ago, I spent the day in the garage doing some woodworking. I was using the table saw, miter saw and router table, creating a lot of dust. For my health, I hooked up the shop vac to the tools to collect the saw dust. Unfortunately, I wasn’t satisfied with the results. The brand […]
Using ice as truck bed ballast
A couple of days ago, a friend and I were talking about putting extra weight in our pickup truck beds for added traction for winter driving. I’ve usually put a few hundred pounds of concrete blocks back there, but the problem is storing those blocks when not in use. I have to carry them out […]
Sterilite storage tubs
For several years we’ve been buying the 18-gallon Sterilite plastic storage totes. They’ve offered the same grey tubs (item #1815) for years, and we’ve bought dozens of them. They sell for around $4 and are roughly 24 inches long, 18 inches wide, and exactly 15-3/8 inches tall. Because of this de facto standardization, I’ve built […]
