OK. This is the last post of Christmas Ornaments for the Year. I made this one with my son in 1995 when Batman Forever came out. Again it was cut from Luan plywood. It was cut out as two separate parts and then strung together with some fishing line. Finished off with green and black paint it was the perfect ornament for 1995.

Every year I try to make a new handmade Christmas tree ornament that is related to the latest trends or fads. This year it was a Miley Cyrus Wrecking Ball ornament. This looks better in the picture then it does in real life. Continue reading
I have been a little bored lately and decided that I wanted to make something fun but easy. Somehow I settled on a Birdhouse. So I looked through a pile of old plans as well as doing an image search for “funny birdhouses” and eventually stumbled upon an image of a birdhouse shaped like a Google Map icon. Continue reading
I attended my first ever Trunk-or-Treat event last night. For those of you that don’t know what Trunk-or-Treat is I’ll explain.

There are 4 different characters available, Grind the rabbit (shown above), Twitch the raccoon, Splodge the hedgehog and Smudge the squirrel. Aren’t they great names for these critters?

I’m getting ready to lay down hardwood floors in my bedroom and was looking online last night at flooring when I came across this picture at Likecool.com. This has got to be one of the coolest floor ideas I have ever seen. I want to do this so bad it hurts. I showed it to my other half and stated that this was the type of floor I wanted to put down in our Master Suite. …….Dead Silence…..followed by a look that said what are you a Freakin’ idiot.

I saw this over on The Goat and just had to post it here. Being an avid Deer Hunter I have seen Bucks fight it out in the woods but never like this.
I recently saw this Hide-A-Key for sale on the web and just had to have it. It is made to look like a sprinkler head. You just plant it in the ground and your done. Every criminal out there knows to look under the mat, in the flower pot or in the fake rock for the keys to the house. Continue reading
