Cheap Dolly Made Using IKEA Ivar and Rollerblade Wheels

If I were shooting more video, I’d definitely look into building something like this. I have a dolly that fits the sweet video tripod, but it’s a cheapy and the wheels swivel when you need to change direction. It’s a pain to drag in a straight line...

Getting the Right Tool for the Job

We’ve had a record-breaking winter this year. I’ve spent a lot of time digging out from major storms and cursing the hill we live on. I knew going in that our driveway would be a challenge, but I figured our existing snowblower was up to the challenge. I...

Daddy Has Special Needs

Breathing Easier

I’m completely floored by the very supportive comments and emails. I can’t possibly respond to all of you, so this is how I’m doing it. I’m feeling pretty buoyed up right now. The last time I worked from home was a disaster that lead to us...

Project Colonoscopy

As an adult, I’ve done a few handy things, but nothing can compare to the kitchen remodel we just finished. I’ve always been the one in the family who, due to my artistic tendencies, has been the least likely to pick up a power tool, hammer a nail or fix a...
