Check out my brother in-law’s blog, it showcases his hand made artwork that is really amazing!
While visiting a friend of mine’s father I found this on his porch, and it’s a no joke fly swatter.
We have been using the Fuzzibunz cloth diaper bag for 18 months now, and it works pretty wall. However, it can get pretty ripe at times, and now that our son is starting to potty train it goes a bit longer between washes. The result has that it has gone from ripe to down right nasty some days.
I looked at several other bags and many of them have zippers on the top rather then the bungee that the Fuzzibunz has (which never really held the bag closed). Another solution that people seem to be using is a diaper pail (like a garbage can that has a lid that opens via a foot pedal) with the cloth bag inside it.
But before I drop another $30 bucks on a bag, or $40+ on a garbage can that I don’t really have room for I thought I’d try modifying our Fuzzibunz bag.
I thought about sewing a zipper in place of the bunggee, but that seemed like a pain, so trying the easiest solution first, I got a small “Wraptor” extension corn holder that I bought at Lowes for $3.00. It has been working great for the last few weeks.
After you get the hang of it you can open it with one hand and open the bag pretty easily. The interior of the bag may still smell, but this clamp does a pretty good job of containing it, so just hold your breath when you open it!
If I had to do it over again I wouldn’t buy this bag, I would buy one with a zipper on it, but this solution works really well for those of us with this type of bag.
If you are like me and you live in a bad part of town, have vehicles that you are always working on and a garage that faces a major (pedestrian) thoroughfare where leaving the garage door open would expose your tools/contents to shady individuals, might I suggest this awesome “emissions diverter”?
My wife thought I was joking when she stopped me walking out of the house with some left over dryer vent hose, but it worked perfectly!
Now if I could just get the city to approve my permit for the Parana filled moat, our compound would be complete.
As a woodworker, designer and Star Wars nerd I am always getting emails from my friends of cool woodworking projects, cleverly designed products or nerdy Star Wars fans. Seldom do they all get rolled up in one picture like we have here.
Tip of the helmet to the person behind this sweet deck chair, thanks for the wood/design/SW hat trick!
In that time after Easter when you can pick up Peeps for huge discounts we like to add them to our menu as much as possible.
And nothing pleases a pregnant lady like freshly made Smores.. unless they are made with Peeps!
I give you Smeeps!
Mr. Fixit: This weekend my wife told me it was my turn the clean the toilet. Looking at it for a considerable amount of time I deduced that it would be easier to just replace it.
Now if she would just tell me it’s my turn to clean the cars.. it would be much easier to replace her Honda Civic (AKA “The Mule”) with a BMW X6.
