The second part of my review of the Evolution Fury 3S Mitre Saw and I put it through its paces building a birdhouse project out of reclaimed timber, upcycled pallet, offcuts and driftwood.
This woodworking project involved cutting part of an old tabletop down to make a base, and constructing a frame out of 2×1 roofing baton. Afterwards lengths of pallet wood were cut to size with a 45 degree bevel at each end and used to construct the walls of the birdhouse using woodglue. Then a pitched roof was added to the birdhouse made out of part of an old desk which was then covered in pieces of driftwood which were cut lengthways and given a 45 degree bevel at one end so they met in the middle tidily. The whole thing was then given a coat of watered down magnolia emulsion paint and left to dry before sanding back and adding a coat of exterior woodstain. The roof was finished in a heavy oil based exterior black stain.

Working with your significant other can be a fun way to get a home improvement project done. Make it into a weekend project and work together to get the job done. Remember how much money you can save by doing your own work. These tips can help you make your project fun and easy.
If you are seriously considering buying a home, get it inspected by a professional. This way, you don’t have to rely on your own eyes and the seller to tell you what may need to be fixed or replaced should you buy the home. Hiring an inspector is a great way to keep arguments about what needs to be fixed to a minimum.
Stained wood baseboards are more appealing than painted ones. In addition to being classic, the warm look of wood is natural in virtually any style of home. Furthermore, wood stain does not readily show scuffs or scratches. Painted baseboards, on the other hand, leave very little to the imagination. As an added bonus, there are dozens of different wood stains to choose from.
When doing exterior home improvements, consider your neighborhood. A Victorian home on a block of saltbox cottages is going to stand out like a sore thumb. If your exterior home remodel blends well with other homes on your street, you have a much better chance of finding a buyer quickly when you are ready to move.
If you have no counter space, install a microwave over the range. Microwaves that replace the range hood come in different prices, and some of them have special features, like convection cooking. Most of these have a filter that recirculates air as opposed to having a vent. This means they are better for people who do not need a vent.
You should have a plan and be able to do it the right way. When you work as a team, the job will be done quickly. You’ll enjoy getting to sit down and appreciate your work almost as much as you’ll enjoy having all the money you’ll save.
