how to build a shed
FEATURED

This past spring, my parents sold my childhood home, which meant I was left without a workshop as my workshop was in a shed in their backyard… and since I live in studio apartment, I was stranded without a place to run my business or build projects! So, this summer my dad and I partnered up with my incredible friends at The Home Depot to build a 12×12 shed from a DIY Shed Kit and turn that shed into my new workshop. Welcome to the first blog post in my Shed-Shop Series – How to Build a Shed!

how to make a metal table base
FEATURED

Have you wanted to incorporate metal into your woodworking builds but aren’t sure where to start? Always wanted to make a table base but don’t have a welder? Reading this in the voice of an infomercial voiceover actor? Well, I have good news for you (I hope you at least read that one in the infomercial voice)! You can totally create a metal table base without a welder, and I partnered with my awesome friends at Bernzomatic to show you how!

  • I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. My favorite part of this journey is connecting with other creatives and learning new things.⁣

Today, I am BEYOND excited to share the details on my collaboration and road trip to California for a play date with @foureyesfurniture and @pneumaticaddict on my YouTube channel (as well as this 3am selfie with my peeps). 😘

In reflecting, I just want to say thank you for supporting what I do and allowing me to make my hobby into a business that affords me the opportunity to travel the country and build cool stuff with cool people. I am so grateful for this life and for you. 🙏🏼⁣

  • Not really sure where to start today, so here goes nothing (it’s a long one). Something I wish someone told me when I started this journey is that there will always be people who make you feel like you are doing something wrong. Putting yourself and your work into the world will always open up doors to vulnerability and criticism, and that’s something I’ve never been good with. ⁣
-⁣
Yesterday I had a total “why am I doing this” moment. Between my failed project, wishing I had more work space, some personal attacks on a page that shared my work, and watching other people’s journeys unfold differently due to circumstances out of my control, I felt totally defeated. ⁣
-⁣
But, then the universe delivered a reminder. Someone special to me was there to show me how much support and love I have - a reminder of how many people I’ve connected with via this crazy journey that I consider my support system. Shortly after, I was tagged in a project that someone made using my woodworking plans... and then I noticed a spike in sales of my Girl Power shirts... in just a few hours I was reminded of all of the love and support that surrounds me. 💕⁣
-⁣
Everyone’s journey is different. Some people do this for the notoriety, some people do this for the money, I do this because woodworking and DIY are my therapy and I want to share my therapy with others. I want to inspire someone out there to pick up a tool and create something new. If I allow the negative noise get in my way, I can’t share what I love with the 150,000+ people who follow my journey across my website and platforms... and I want to continue to do that because I am so, so grateful for the love and support that turned this hobby into a buisiness. Thank you for always believing in what I do and what I stand for. 💓
-⁣
My lesson learned this weekend - the people who support and love you will always be there for you. The rest is just a distraction. Stay focused, humble, and human. The rest is there to help strengthen your stride and push you harder. I’m here for that. 🙏🏼⁣
