If you tend to love woodworking projects, this workbench is certainly something that you should build. You can get all of the supplies you need to make it for around $20, which is much cheaper than buying an already made workbench. It’s cheap and nothing that you would expect to see in a high end workshop, but it’s also sturdy and definitely gets the job done.
With technology changing so fast, it didn’t seem smart to sink a lot of money into a TV stand. But inexpensive stands didn’t have the features I wanted: enclosed storage and lots of shelves for electronic components. This stand gives me those things, plus it’s rock solid. Some inexpensive stands are rated to support 75 lbs. or less. This thing would hold a V-8 engine block. It’s sized for a 42-in. TV, but you could easily make it bigger by spacing the cabinets farther apart or choosing wider cabinets. It’s taller than most stands, which may be good or bad, depending on your situation.

I love this lantern. It’s made from 2X4s and has such a wonderful rustic look to it. You piece it together with blocks from your 2X4s and it holds candles. It’s perfect for sitting on the porch any time of the year and you can really dress it up for the holiday season. It resembles those old rustic metal lanterns and you can easily make it from leftover blocks of 2X4 – you know, those pieces you have on hand after you’ve done other 2X4 projects.
Working on one side at a time, glue and nail the side to the back. Apply glue and drive three 1-5/8-in. nails into each shelf, attach the other side and nail those shelves into place to secure them. Clamps are helpful to hold the unit together while you’re driving nails. Center the top piece, leaving a 2-in. overhang on both sides, and glue and nail it into place. Paint or stain the unit and then drill pilot holes into the top face of each side of the unit and screw in the hooks to hold your ironing board. Mount the shelf on drywall using screw-in wall anchors.

As a world-class penny pincher, I’ve found that stock cabinets are the key to low-cost, good-quality DIY furniture. I get handsome, sturdy, real-wood furniture for the cost of assemble-it-yourself pieces sold at discount stores. And the advantages go way beyond saving money. Cabinets make furniture building incredibly quick and easy by eliminating the difficult, fussy process of building and hanging doors.
This wooden décor is gorgeous and a great way to show your love of family. You can obviously do whatever message you want on this, but I really love the Journey To Forever theme.

What a beautiful display for the mantel or coffee table!

These are so creative and will look beautiful hanging inside your home.
