If you happen to have a root or something slimier that you are looking to make something from it this project might just be the one for you. I have to say that they have done a fantastic job of turning a root into an amazing looking drinks holder.

For this project you will need, One turning blank or root roughly 4″ in diameter and 8″ long. Stainless steel travel mug kit, Epoxy, Mica Powder, cellophane and Sand Paper, I would say the only downside fo this project is that you need a Lathe so unless you own one or know some one that does this project may not be for you, still worth having a look you may be able to use the idea to make your own projects. Check out the project below.

Having somewhere to store your firewood is a must! I use an old shed that is full and really not working as takes to long to get in and get out with some wood thought a small shed door.. This is a project I will be making so I wanted you guys and gals to have a chance to see this and maybe try it for your self.

Having a strong and good looking firewood rack is important for any home that is graced with a wood stove or open fire. I have a cheap and nasty one from Menards and it looks like a child built it. It also doesn’t hold what we need which is a real shame. Check out all 9 racks here and let me know which is your favourite.

Making soap at home can be a great way to save money. However, many recipes call for using lye in soap making. Lye is not a very safe chemical to have around. This is a guide about making soap without lye.

Making soap can be compared to making cake. You can either go to the store and buy a ready-made cake from the bakery section OR you can buy a box of cake mix to whip up at home OR you can buy the individual ingredients to make one from scratch. I am so happy I found this pumpkin spice soap recipe. I am going to be making a batch today so I will let you know how I get on over on our FB page. This soap recipe is super easy to make and can all be done in 30 minutes or less.

Winter isn’t hard only on people. Animals and birds suffer as well from the cold weather, some just migrate to other countries in order to find the climate comfort they need. Funny thing about chickens is that they seem always to be the “butt” of jokes. Everyone is always making “chicken jokes” – poor things. I live smack dab in the middle of the state of Nebraska – the prairie, and chickens are plentiful.

This in spite of the often sub-zero temperatures and bitter wind chills. So it’s clear that the chicken raisers must know how to keep their broods warm on a cold Nebraska – well, day and night actually. If your chickens like to be out in winter then maybe they need a sweater just like humans would. The DIY sweaters for chickens are a great and useful idea you can implement right away..
