If you’ve been following me for a while, then you’ll remember the days when I sold custom signs on Etsy and made a living off it while attending graduate school. I still to this day get so many questions about how I made my signs! Well, in all honesty, being a graduate student on a budget meant I couldn’t afford a stencil cutting machine. So, I had to get crafty! To help celebrate my one-year anniversary of my PhD, I partnered with my friends at Varathane to spill my secret as to how I made custom signs and stencils without a stencil cutter and how you can too!
One of my favorite parts about being a DIY blogger is that I get to be part of a community of insanely talented makers. So, cue my excitement when a bunch of my favorite creators invited me to a fun Wood Art Challenge! I already have a tutorial on my blog for Geometric Wood Art and thought it would be fun to try something with plywood this time. To help me with this project, I partnered with my amazing friends at Rust-Oleum to show you how to make this piece of wall art in one weekend! Here’s how.
As a woodworker and a maker, one of the projects I have had on my bucket list for a while has been a resin and wood end table. I have spent months scouring lumber yards and the internet for the perfect piece in need of TLC. And, well, when you wish and try hard enough dreams do come true. I am beyond excited to have been able to partner with my amazing friends at Bernzomatic to finally create the one of a kind resin table I’ve been imagining up in my head! I’ll show you how surprisingly easy it is to fill voids in wood with resin and create awesome art work in just a few easy steps!
