Throughout my entire upstairs there are 2 solid wood beams that run across the ceiling that hold the roof up. In my bedroom a small section of one of the beams is visible. I used pine pieces stained dark to cover the beam to 1. make it slightly bigger and 2. make it look more rustic.

I created What's Open 3 years ago, but got a cease and desist for the name and pulled it from the market. Now, I have an LLC in place and a Trademark filed for Now Open, so it's back up under a new name!

D'arcy has a friend at work that wanted name signs for her horse. Using my new laser engraver I etched some basic designs into pine and slapped on 3 coats of polyurethane.
I found some 4" (actually 3.5") wide thin tongue and groove panels from Lowe's that came with an insanely cheap price tag - 6x 8' panels for $15. I tore down some old 4'x8' painted wood paneling from my bedroom ceiling and installed these planks using 1" tack pins and Liquid Nails adhesive. I love the final result that next summer I'll be redoing my entire upstairs with these planks.
I repaired these chairs for my friend Lauren that had been broken by some of her roommates fat friends - these chairs can only hold so much weight. This is what the chairs looked like when she gave them to me. Luckily, the repair was simple enough because the seats themselves were just quarter inch plywood cut into a circle with roughly a 12" diameter.
I have been absolutely hooked on Overwatch for the past couple of weeks - I haven't had this much fun playing a PC game since StarCraft Brood War or Minecraft. I've been mostly playing on my iMac running Windows through bootcamp. While it worked, it could really only handle medium graphics setting at around 40 FPS. For a long time I've toyed with the idea of building a "rig" - a new PC specifically for gaming. Now that I finally have the game I want to play, that was all the justification I needed.
I built a new PC, and at the same time also made a new Overwatch themed desk for the PC to go in my room.
I made a Super Mario (from Super Mario 3, my favorite NES Mario game) out of stained oak cubes. I basically stole this idea from pinterest https://www.pinterest.com/pin/28429041373312165/?from_navigate=true
