When I was growing up we didn’t have cable. I guess my parents thought it would be bad for us and we’d watch too much tv if we had it? The long term ramifications of this were, #1 I am totally unable to understand a big chunk of 90’s pop culture references (I’m sorry, I am not familiar with this “Real World” you speak of… And what is a veejay?). #2 I cannot identify most popular musicians from the 90’s on sight because I basically never watched Mtv and only heard them on the radio. (Please don’t ask me to pick the members of Boys II Men out of a lineup!) AND #3 I have a nerdily healthy appreciation for PBS. On sundays I would watch all the good cooking shows and then This Old House and The New Yankee Workshop. I blame Norm for me thinking architecture school was a good idea. But I totally loved the wood-working parts. Unfortunately I’m still a little scared of power tools so I haven’t really tried to tackle any big projects. In an attempt to get more comfortable working with wood, here are some great wood grain and wood inspired DIY projects that aren’t too scary! Enjoy!
