Do-it-yourself projects


Although this blog is mainly about DIY woodworking, I do occasionally make some craft and DIY project, speaking in a more general sense. Here you’ll find all those DIY projects, plus some Halloween pumpkin carvings.

Lately I’m more focused on the woodworking part of the blog, but I hope to continue posting some DIY stuff from time to time. And what I would like to do is to post a Halloween pumpkin carving video every year.
