Loft Bed Made From PVC Water Pipe Alex's Loft Bed Made From PVC Water Pipe When Alex was 3 years old I decided to give him a little extra room in his bedroom by building him a loft bed with a lot of play room underneath. I had been using PVC pipe for other projects and thought it would be good for this one, too, so I made some measurements of PVC pipe fittings and created some 3D CAD models so I could construct the whole thing in the computer before ever cutting a piece of pipe. PVC pipe is great stuff to work with.

hugelkultur, nature's raised garden beds FOR 25 YEARS I have grown my vegetables in raised beds, but the kind that you need to purchase lumber and bolts and use a saw and hammer to construct, then fill entirely with soil and compost. Lately I’ve been looking longingly at photos of a centuries-old, sustainable way of making raised garden beds called hugelkultur, or hill culture. “It’s like sheet mulching or lasagna gardening,” says Dave Whitinger of All Things Plants, who regularly lectures on the subject, but in hugelkultur, “wood is the first level of your sheet-mulched bed.” In print or my latest public-radio show and podcast, hugelkultur 101 with Dave (whose robust hugelkultur onion bed that is up top). prefer the podcast?HUGELKULTUR was the subject of the latest edition of my weekly public-radio program, a conversation with Dave Whitinger of the thriving All Things Plants web community.
How to print pictures on wood. Wax Paper transfer. I’m funny. Sometimes ha-ha funny, sometimes left-out-of-the-fridge-too-long funny.

Kintsugi: the art of repairing broken ceramics Did you know that in Japan, the act of repairing broken ceramics is an art form? The 16th century ‘Kintsugi’, or ‘Kintsukuroi’, is a repairing technique that celebrates the broken item’s rich history by decorating its cracks instead of hiding them. This is done by applying a mixture of urushi (lacquer resin), rice glue, and powdered gold, silver, or platinum. No two Kintsugi patterns are the same, with each golden stream’s path depending on the extent and pattern of the break. The method gives the broken pottery piece new life and identity, making it good as new – sometimes better than the original, even.

8 great ways to incorporate a flat screen television into a room. Without a doubt, without any bit of hesitation or yammering I can tell you that the most difficult decision I’ve had to make during this entire kitchen renovation is … where to put the stupid television. I still hate where I put my television in the living room 2 years ago, so I can’t totally be trusted with this sort of thing. I can’t decide if I want a big television, or a smaller one, should it be hidden, shown off, on the counter, on a wall? I thought I had it all figured out. 3 times. 3 times I thought I knew exactly where the television should go and then some niggly little thought wormed its way into my brain and I reconsidered my decision. I used hunks of cardboard and put them throughout the kitchen to see how I thought I liked them. Generally speaking I found I didn’t like hunks of cardboard anywhere.
Sepp Holzer's Permaculture While most people think they are mending the world's problems by contemplating light bulbs or buying "organic", there are thousands of people making a more significant difference. And out of those thousands there are a few dozen trail blazers. And out of those few dozen there is one guy that is WAY out ahead of the pack.
