DIY: Cordless Tool Charging Station (Shop Project)

A charging station is an essential piece for any shop.  If you have cordless tools, then you have batteries that need charging.  If you currently do not have a central place that you do all your charging chores, this will change the way you look at cordless tools.

DIY: Baby Changing Table with Cabinet

DIY Baby Changing Table Cabinet

Inspiration for design ideas are all around us.  Most of the time we don't see them because our brains are trained to eliminate noise and clutter.  An advertising billboard here, a radio ad there and before you know it your ignoring the good with the bad.
