Hammers

Hammers

HammerWhoever conceived the idea of cracking a nut with a rock unknowingly invented a tool. When a later genius tied a stick to the rock, he invented the first hammer. There have been many improvements since that humble beginning.

A claw hammer is the best choice. A well-made hammer with curved claw opposite the striking face of cast steel is a good investment.

Keep the striking surface clean and never put it away when it is wet. If the hammer head works loose, drive a wooden wedge at the top of the hammer head. Some people soak their hammers but this only swells the wooden handle temporarily and is apt to cause rust later. A sharp blow on the head will apparently tighten it, but a few moments of use will only loosen it again.

To use a hammer, grasp the handle at the end-never near the head-and be sure to strike the nail squarely and at the same angle as the direction you wish to drive the nail. Hold your hammer level with the nail-never at an angle up or down. Otherwise, the nail will bend or may come out through the wood. Use light taps until the nail is well started. Don't hurry.

The nail set is used to sink the head of the nail below the surface of the wood.

Do not use your nail hammer to work metal, or pound cold chisels, or to drive rivets. Use it only to drive nails and brads.

The metal-working hammers divide themselves into two classifications- hard-face and soft-face. One of the best general-purpose hammers is the ball peen hammer; this is often called a machinist's hammer.

How to Remove Old Wall Paper

How to Remove Old Wall Paper

Wall paper steamerWallpaper is notoriously difficult to remove if you don't know what you're doing. Simply peeling it off results in half the thickness coming off, and you're left with the pattern being removed, with the backing still firmly attached to the wall. Worse still, is the wallpaper that doesn't even allow that to happen, and you're left picking at the small bits that provide you with slow peeling, and no satisfaction of taking a big chunk off at a time. But thankfully, there are several effective and easier ways how to remove old wallpaper and leave a good flat surface as a result.

Featured: Wagner Power Products 282018 1-Gallon Wallpaper Steamer

The first way is to score the wallpaper with a knife and then soak it with a stripping solution. These special prepared solutions are available for purchase, but be sure to follow its own guidelines for application. Often it can help to add some hot water to the solution to speed up the process and make it more effective. Apply this special solution to the wall and allow it to soak in for several minutes. The scores allow this solution to penetrate behind the wallpaper and this helps loosen the adhesive between paper and the wall.

Next use a wide putty knife to lever up the paper and gently pull it up and everything being equal, you should be able to pull off big pieces of paper at a time.

A second solution is to use a wallpaper steamer. These are great tools that really aid the removal of old wallpaper. The steamer is filled with water which is boiled. The hot vapors travel down a long tube and out to a rectangular plastic cup. Apply this cup to the wall, and hold it against the wall for several seconds. Then move to an adjacent section, and do the same again. Repeat four or five times, and then you should be able remove old wallpaper easily. If any paper is still being resistant, then simply apply the steamer to it and try again.

Steaming is a great technique especially for plastered walls, but on drywall, more care should be taken because it is more suceptible to water damage, as well as the possibility of being gouged by the putty knife. Although any gouges and holes can be filled and sanded after, this will increase your workload. Also, don't forget to be careful as the steam can easily burn you if you're not careful.

Putty knives or paint stripping tools can now be bought in plastic versions instead of metal. These are just as effective, but are also less likely to leave gouges or cuts in the wall, especially drywall board. It's a useful tip to know.

These two methods are the most effective ways on how to remove old wall paper. Once you have mastered the amount of solution or steam necessary for application, you should be able to quickly and easily remove the wall paper. With both methods, the aim is to reduce the effectiveness of the original adhesive used to fix the paper to the wall, and once this has been effected, removal of the paper should be simple.

Makita 5007MG Ergonomic Industrial Motor Magnesium 7-1/4-Inch Circular Saw Review

Makita 5007MG Ergonomic Industrial Motor Magnesium 7-1/4-Inch Circular Saw Review

Makita Circular SawA Tool for Every Need
There are carpenter tools and then there are professional carpenter tools and the latter is radically different from the other when it comes to proficiency and efficiency.  One of the best professional level tools is the Makita 5007MG Magnesium 7-1/4-Inch Circular Saw. The 5007MG is the essential carpenter's tool when it comes to cutting wood and it is designed to give out optimal cutting power without requiring a lot of effort from your end. This is the tool that helps you make the most of your time cutting wood and is designed for easy accuracy so that you won't make any errors or spend too much time making adjustments to your measurements.

Good Design Points
There are a lot of good points to talk about when it comes to the Makita 5007MG and most of it draws from the ergonomic design and the powerful motor that drives this machine. Unlike other tools that hard to hold, hard to see with, and hard to make an accurate cut without exerting too much effort, the 5007MGis a tool designed for easy gripping, easy measuring and requires very minimal effort on your end. Here is a brief but detailed look at the top reasons why this particular circular saw rests on top of the crowd.

First of all you will notice that the Makita 5007MG is run by a powerful 15 AMP, 5,800 RPM motor. This guarantees that you get the most precise cuts without the need to push down hard or to exert a lot of effort just to get a minimal cut on the wood. This kind of power means you can expect to use the circular saw on just about any kind of wood material and still feel like you're cutting butter with a hot knife.

For a tool this strong it is incredibly light and easy to hold. Older models from Makita used to be built of steel and other heavy materials but now they have turned to a decent mix of light but durable metal materials such as magnesium. This places the entire tool weighing a total of only 10.1 lbs. This goes well with the ergonomic design that makes the back and front grips easy to hold even for people with large hands or those who tend to wear thick gloves while working. The design of the grips also allows you to get a clearer view of the cutting area. Other circular saws block your vision and you usually have to rely on pure instinct to get an accurate cut. To further remedy this problem you are provided with two LED lights that function as guide lights when working. This is a tremendous help especially if you are making millimeter-precision cuts.

The warranty for the Makita 5007MG Magnesium 7-1/4-Inch Circular Saw is another good thing to look into. For the first thirty days you can give back the 5007MG for a replacement or for a complete refund if you find yourself unsatisfied with its performance. After that you still get a full one year warranty in case any of the parts break due to a poor design or any failure on behalf of Makita. This is the perfect warranty for this kind of product because you never can be sure of the quality during the first thirty days and it may take some time to notice whether a part of the saw is not on par with the superior quality that the products are known for.

The Cons
If there is any complaint to make about this product it is concerned with the included saw blade. True, they do advertise that the blade is coated with materials that will guarantee it can bite through anything without getting damaged but the truth is that after some time you can expect to start losing blade teeth. This is not a major concern however as you can easily replace these with other top of the line saw blades that easily fit into the Makita 5007MG.

[phpzon asin="B000N5SVEY" country="US" trackingid="diy-do-it-yourself-20" templatename="asin"]

The Verdict
So how does the 5007MG live up to the standards of Makita? For a device that greatly empowers the user with its easy and effective ergonomic design and its motor that ensures you can use this tool for any kind of wood material and any wood cutting job.

Dragonfly facts

  • Dragonflies are insect who belong to the order Odonata. Experts divide them into three sub-species: the largest true dragonflies called Anisoptera, the smaller damselfly called Zygoptera and Anisozygoptera which seems to be a combination of the first two.
  • They are easily recognisable as having large eyes, small antennae, slim segmented bodies, and 4 thin membranous wing in sets of 2. In dragonflies the rear pair of wings become broader at the base. Damselfly wings are all the same size.
  • Dragonfly eyes are set together close to the top of the head and they can see all around them. Damselflies eyes are situated slightly more to each side of the head.
  • They can vary in size from around 1 inch to 6 inches in some species.
  • So far something like 5680 different species of dragonfly have been recorded world-wide.
  • Dragonfly eyes are multifaceted. This means they can see in every direction - so they sense even tiny movements - all the better for hunting prey.
  • They eat mosquitos and other pests which makes them a great addition to your garden. Some people such as the Burmese, regularly release dragonfly nymphs into local water to keep down the population of mosquitoes.
  • The twin sets of wings gives the dragonflies the ability to fly in all sort of ways. They can hoover, fly fast or slow, even loop the loop. Their flying ability is one of the reasons they are so much fun to watch.

Recycled Reclaimed Wood Coffee Tables

Recycled Reclaimed Wood Coffee Tables

Reclaimed Wood Coffee Tables

One of the most exciting trends in the last few years has been the surge of designers using recycled and reclaimed products in their work. Using recycled products is a great way to help keep the landfills from overflowing, save money and still get great products for your home. One the most fascinating niches in the recycling industry is the reclaiming of wood from demolition done in major cities with old factories, warehouses, public buildings and schools that were built when solid wood was cheap and used for just about everything--furniture, framing buildings, flooring and more.

Reclaimed wood is gathered by construction companies who work with city demolition companies hand in hand. The demolition has to be done more carefully to get the wood in good condition. This type of work is called deconstruction because much of the building is picked apart piece by piece. However, the resulting reclamation can turn up lots of solid wood for building projects.

Coffee tables are a great way to use the reclaimed wood. You can see the unique grain and color of the wood, and depending on the designer, get a traditional style table or something one-of-a-kind. Many of these projects are made-to-order, so that the customer can get a piece that fits their space precisely.

Here are a collection of beautiful reclaimed-wood coffee tables (and a couple dining tables) that have been made by independent craftsmen around the United States.

The table pictured above is a sample of the custom coffee tables built to order by designer Rustic Ridge Table Company in Nashville, TN. Each table ordered will look somewhat like this image, but unique since they are built by hand one at a time. The wood comes from old pallets and old fencing to make this design. Legs are made from iron pipes.

This particular wood is called Barge Board which you can read all about when you click through to see more pictures of this design.

Recycled Wood Coffee Table with ShelfReclaimed Wood Coffee Table with Shelf by Plateau Metal

I love the mixture of metal and wood in this table. It has the rustic feel from the wood with a more industrial style because of the metal shelf. It can be used in so many different types of decor because of the dichotomy of styles. This table is made from cedar in Sammamish, WA.

Reclaimed Wood Coffee TableReclaimed Coffee Table by Perfect 45 Degree

This table looks like it is made from a cross-section of wood from the center of a tree. The colors are magnificent. Designed and built in Portland, Oregon, the Douglas Fir wood gives the table a lovely color and grain. Legs come off for easy shipping and transporting.

Reclaimed Wood Dining TableReclaimed Wood Dining Table by Perfect 45 Degree

Another table by Perfect 45 Degree, this is the second dining table on this page. You can see why I had to include it though. Such a unique design. Also made from Douglas Fir, this table has a completely different style from the one above. The designer incorporates Cherry and other hardwoods into the design for accents. You can click on the link above to see all of the designs from Perfect 45 Degree.

As you can see, there are many variations on tables that are built from reclaimed wood. Some of the variations are from the wood itself and how it has fared before reaching the designer. If you are looking to add furniture pieces with character to your home, this is a great place to start.

Bird Bath/Bird Feeder Sundials

An outdoor cast iron sundial can be a combination bird bath or bird feeder as well as a sundial.  Sundials in the traditional sense keep time via the movement of the sun either on a hourly, daily, or monthly basis.

If you want to attract birds to your garden, then a bird bath or bird feeder type of sundial is what you should look for.  Many of the bird bath or bird feeder sundials have animal motifs or plant motifs to blend in more with the garden and have a fantasy appeal.

Animals are often picture or sculpted on sundials especially garden animals, birds, butterflies, turtles, rabbits, and squirrels.

Other Sundial Choices

Sundials can be made of any metal that will not rust, and therefore you can also find sundials made from aluminum, bronze, copper, and brass.  Copper is the most expensive, and therefore less available.  Aluminum is the least durable metal, and more lightweight.  It is cheaper but not the best choice.

If you are going to leave your sundial out all summer or all year, then you need to make sure to find a heavy durable metal sundial meant to be outside all year.  Part of your decision can be based on how the metal oxidizes in the outdoors over time.

Some sundials are painted, but I do not think that painted sundials are a good choice because you will have to continue painting them as the paint wears off.  The metals on their own will develop a beautiful patina in the outdoor garden.

Whimsical Sundials

Sundials can be plain and simple, or they can be whimsical.  The most whimsical have butterflies, and fairy creatures on them, and these are especially suitable if you are creating a fairy garden.  Whimsical sundials appeal to children because it is fun to find the various creatures in the garden.  You can also find matching garden statues to go with your cast iron sundial.

There are also funny sundials or hobbyist sundials.  One of my favorites is the golfer sundial below.  This a favorite of many golfers both men and women, and makes a great gift for Father's Day.

If you are more traditional, the armillary sundial or calendar sundials are a better choice.  Watching the sun move across the sundial is a very peaceful occupation for any garden visitor.

A sundial should be a central point in your garden, so browse the choices available and choose the one that best fits your garden plan, and your budget.

How to Decorate your Bedroom in Orange, Tangerine and Nectarine

If there's a color that is popular right now, it's orange, and it can add a real pop when you use it to decorate a bedroom. Of course, there are lots of shades of orange from very pale to rich and deep. Which you decide on is up to you, and here I've tried to include a range using tangerine and orange as the main colors to help you choose.

Orange is a vibrant, rich and cheerful color that really stands out, so the first thing you should decide is just how much you need to create your own look. Start by thinking of the main or biggest areas that need filling -- walls and floor coverings, curtains and bedding are the major focal points in a bedroom. You probably already have the floor and wall colors in place, and if you've been wise, you've chosen neutral colors that will form a solid base for implementing any color changes elsewhere that you might want to make.

What I've done here is pick out things you can choose to put together orange bedroom decor. You'll find suggestions that include orange bedding, curtains and rugs and some accent ideas.

Tangerine Curtains

Covering the windows is another of those large blocks of color I was talking about earlier. As usual, there are lots of decisions depending on your needs and your taste. Do you need curtains for privacy and that cut out light and drafts and keep heat in, or could you get away with using something completely decorative?

Orange Wall Decor

Add orange decor accents using peel and stick wall decals. These are inexpensive and easy to apply and if you want to change them, they peel off without leaving any marks. There are lots of different designs and styles to choose from depending on your taste. Or choose clocks, metal wall art and more to add interest to your room.
