Hey there! How was your week? Can you believe this was the last full weekend of October? It’s time to start thinking about buttoning down for the winter. That’s what I focused on this weekend… building a new storm window for the bathroom window I restored a few weeks ago.
I had drawn a storm window plan in SketchUp just after I finished installing the window. Then I took some time off from the window project. When I printed the plan to start cutting my pieces, I thought, should I check the measurements first? Nah, why would I have drawn it in Sketchup if I didn’t have the correct dimensions? Lesson learned AGAIN – measure twice, cut once! I should have measured, because guess what? It didn’t fit! Needless to say I didn’t finish the storm window this weekend.
This past week Joan followed the How to: Make a Dog Gate plans to make her own dog gate. I’d love to see a pic of Joan’s project and any of your projects! You can send pics to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is the last week for the October Follow and Win Giveaway. The prize is a Cherry wood No Miter Cut Picture Frame made by me. Chances are you’re reading this because you’re already a follower, so how about sharing the “Follow” page with friend?
How to Video and Sunday Sneak Peek
I’m excited to announce my first “how to” video is DONE! I’m a whiz in the workshop, but for the most part I’m tech challenged, so this was quite the feat for me. I mean, I’m not gonna win a daytime Emmy or anything, but I think it’s respectable for my first video. I learned a lot and I’m already thinking of improvements I would make for the next one. The video is a companion for my most popular project, How to: Make No Miter Cut Picture Frame. I’ll be hosting a viewing party this week, well not really, but I’ll be releasing the video early this week. Keep an eye on your inbox for the link to the video!
Have a good week!
