DSCF1332
How to Replace the Cord on a Power Tool I’m not sure if I am the only one who is so lucky… It never fails that something happens to one of my tools while I am using it. For example, the blade guard broke on my miter saw while I was using it.  I tried to use a bit of MacGyver action to fix it but ended up buying a new one.

Free Plans to Build a Seventh Ave Inspired Janikka Table Let me start off by saying that the inspiration piece for this plan is finished in the most ah-mazing shade of green… I found a match for the paint and added the plans to my “to build” list! However, when I did build the piece, I didn’t use the green paint – I used a bright pink (Strawberry Daiquiri by Behr) and it sits in my daughter’s room.
