Spring is Here!

– Posted in: Projects

Finally… I know it has been forever but I finally have time to post! Spring is here and I am just DYING to build stuff! I was on vacation last week and instead of relaxing, I spent my time building, improving, and renovating!

First off, I built some really cool barstools.

I got the plans here awhile back and adjusted the dimensions for my needs. I stained them with Rust-Oleum Ultimate Wood Stain in Sunbleached. I think they look awesome and they fit my bar area perfectly!

Then, I bought a new toy.

Sure, it cost a pretty penny but considering it is a tool I will use constantly, it was well worth it! So far, I’m impressed with the features ( an indicator on the battery!!) and the power. His name is Max  for “Max Power”!!

Anyway, I will do my best to post on a more regular basis as I complete new projects or come across new and exciting stuff to share! Stay tuned!

    I tried posting this to the Ana White website but for reason, it isn’t working.

    Love the idea of using 2x4s…obviously cheaper and I like the added strength. Are the legs also 2×4? They look smaller…like 2×2? Also, I’m wondering how sturdy they feel to you and if you find them to be comfortable. Thanks!

      Yes, the legs are actually 2x4s ripped in half. In a few days, I’ll post instructions on how to do this if you’ll check back… I’d really appreciate it!

      I find that they are sturdy and very straight compared to most of the 2x2s I find where I live. It is so much more cost effective!

      If I can help with anything else, please let me know!

      Thanks!!

      I’m not sure if you’ve seen it yet, but the latest post on my site (www.designsbystudioc.com) is about ripping a 2×4 in half. Hope this helps!
