Am I the only one that kind of thinks it’s weird that it took us this long to come up with the concept of standing desks?  Like…I’ve never really seen one until fairly recently. . Maybe they’ve been around and I just haven’t noticed until now (highly likely…), but what a life changing concept, amiright??  No wonder they’re becoming so popular.  And science (I’ve always wondered who exactly “science” is, haven’t you?) has shown that it’s much healthier to stand…

Simple Modern DIY Bookshelf

How to build a DIY bookshelf that's simple, modern, and provides plenty of display storage

This year, I challenged myself to try some new joinery techniques in some of my projects.  One of these projects is this simple modern DIY bookshelf. However, sometimes this “new joinery” adventure turns out good…like with this retro Bluetooth speaker box.  And other times…like now…there is a little learning curve and things don’t go exactly as intended… . For this project, I tried using dadoes for the shelves to help sturdy it up a bit and also help me with…

Simple Little DIY Bookshelf

How to build a simple, little DIY bookshelf

Sometimes you just need a little shelf.  Nothing big.  Nothing fancy.  Nothing complicated.  Just a plain, little bookshelf.  Something simple…like this. Isn’t it cute?  It’s so little.  Everything miniature is cuter than the full size, isn’t it?  Except for candy bars…those are always better full size, amiright? 😉 . It’s not REALLY that little, though, I don’t guess.  But it’s smaller than some of my latest builds and it’s the perfect little size for a small nook or space that…
