How to: Make Your Own Customized Gardening Tools

Even as an adult, I love playing in the dirt. Getting my hands dirty, nurturing a plant from a seed into something I can eat and feed my friends and family with...gardening, at least for me, is a not brainer for the guy living the "hands on" lifestyle.

Weekend Project: Turn Yard Waste into an Awesome Lounge Chair

With winter finally making its way out of our lives (for now), there's a whole lotta cleaning to do. Inside? Sure, but this also includes trimming all of those "Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows"-looking branches and debris from your yard from all those record setting wind storms this year (yes, that happened too.)

The Hair Care Bunch: An Introduction to Men's Styling Products

I have no shame in admitting it: I'm a hair product guy. Not a lot, of course, and if I do it right, you can barely tell, but it's useful. See, I have a rather short forehead and thick, heavy, straight hair that simply just falls forward and flat. It can't even hold a part without some help. So, lest I look bummed out (literally, flat hair on my forehead makes me look sad) or live with what my white (affectionately?) calls my "sick hair" [cause that's how I look on a sick day], I use a little help to give my face some energy.

How to: Hang a Sliding "Barn" Door Anywhere in Your Home

created at: 04/08/2014

If I could have my druthers, I doubt I'd live in a house. I wouldn't go for a loft, necessarily, but some sort of converted work/live space filled with architectural and industrial details instead of a chair rail. But, likely, I'll end up in a standard single family home, hopefully with a great kitchen and a little yard. Doesn't sound so bad, really...
