It seems to me that there are always people looking for how to do certain tasks in the BGG DIY world - making cards, boards, chits, painting minis, and building board games in general. Since this board already has most of the answers, I've gone ahead and compiled them into one big post for the community's browsing leisure. If you don't see an answer in the category you're looking for, take a look through the external links at the bottom of the post where I've compiled many non-BGG links to sites that provide DIY gaming-related services.

Firstly a Primer: In the DIY World, there is a kind of "manufacturing triangle" that rules over everything you do. Don't expect anyone to provide you with a solution to a problem that doesn't involve at least one of cost, skill, or time. Another note - don't expect to be able to replicate a manufactured product with your homemade one. Now, with that out of the way, on to the list: Printers: Properly setting up printers is a difficult task. Components: Cards: Gaming Table. My wife and I have really gotten into playing boardgames as of late (mostly thanks to Geek & Sundry's Tabletop ), so I wanted a nice gaming table to play on that wouldn't just be a whole separate table taking up room in the house. In addition, I wanted it to have seating for more people (our table at the time only sat four) and for it to be able to be closed off so that I could leave an in progress game safe from the destruction of our toddler.

I ended up finding inspiration from Geek Chic's Emissary table ( ). The Emissary is a duel purpose table (dining room and gaming), sits six to eight people, and can be closed off, halting an in progress game. However, the Emissary's average price is $3000-$4000, which was vastly out of my price range. So instead of taking out a loan just to buy a table, and not wanting to settle for going without, I set out to build my own gaming table. Building Materials: Skirt: Legs: Legs. Homemade Firestarters. I love Jennifer. I love her with all my heart and a tiny portion of my pancreas. Jennifer is an Art of Doing Stuff reader that brought homemade firestarters to my attention.

You may have seen them before. I sure hadn’t. I was familiar with store bought firestarters and pinecones dipped in wax which were a DIY craft featured on Design*Sponge a year or so ago. But for some reason I never gave them a shot. Plus my local dollar store carries firestarters for a dollar. So when Jennifer asked me whether I’d tried to make my own firestarters before I thought, No. So I made my own firestarters. Take your egg carton … Shove whatever you have on hand in the cups. Cotton balls … Wood chips … Dryer lint … belly button lint … Paper towels … sawdust … Melt your leftover candlewax. I found it was easiest to just drop the wax into a metal can and then put the can in a pot with an inch or so of water in the bottom of it.

Gently heat the water. Pour the wax over the contents of your egg carton. 50 DIY Organization Ideas For Every Room In Your Home - Home Repairs Improvements and Remodeling Ideas.

Hi everyone! Thank you so much for your patience with me as we've been traveling for the past few weeks. It's been fun being on book tour but we are so happy to be on the home stretch.

I wanted to tell you that it's been quite sad to not only be without our child, but our child hasn't wanted to talk to us since we've been gone. Every time we call home, she's distracted and won't sit still to talk to us. Her behavior hasn't been angry - more like she's doing cartwheels or coloring, and doesn't want to be bothered. I've been quite sad about it, and wondered if she's so grown up now that Mom and Dad being gone just doesn't matter much. Well, we got the whole story this morning. Aunt Sherry told Grace that her mama was really sad that she didn't want to talk to her on the phone. And little Gracie said she DID want to talk to mama.

Now I'm the one crying! So many of us here are Mom's that get to stay home with our children, as I have been blessed to do for the past five years.
