Pine Window Trim

Posted by Dave Eddy on 09 Oct 2016 - tags: diy

I removed white painted trim around my bedroom window and replaced it with dark stained wood trim. I took the white trim out to my garage and cut wood pieces to match the sizes almost exactly (I increased the size of the ledge).


Coffee Mug Rack (Part 2)

Posted by Dave Eddy on 23 Sep 2016 - tags: diy

I built a Coffee Mug Rack for Skye's Christmas gift. My sister Jenny said she liked it a lot so I built a second one for her birthday! This time, the openings were slightly larger to accommodate bigger mugs, and the stain darker.

This is the finish product with a mug I bought her from our favorite Sega game: Toe Jam and Earl.


Face Beam with Pine

Throughout my entire upstairs there are 2 solid wood beams that run across the ceiling that hold the roof up. In my bedroom a small section of one of the beams is visible. I used pine pieces stained dark to cover the beam to 1. make it slightly bigger and 2. make it look more rustic.


Now Open for iOS

Use Now Open to find places around you that are currently open

I created What's Open 3 years ago, but got a cease and desist for the name and pulled it from the market. Now, I have an LLC in place and a Trademark filed for Now Open, so it's back up under a new name!

Open this app to see a map that automatically zooms to your current location and shows every place around you that is open - Complete with "food" and "pizza" buttons!

  • Find all places around you that are currently open
  • See how long you have until a business closes (ie. 30 minutes left!)
  • Search for keywords like "pasta", "Chinese", "bars", etc.
  • Easily open your favorite maps app for navigation
  • Quickly call any place you find
  • Share places found on Facebook and Twitter
  • Eat at new restaurants, visit new locations!
  • Great for finding late night spots

Pine Tongue and Groove Ceiling

Posted by Dave Eddy on 24 Aug 2016 - tags: diy

I found some 4" (actually 3.5") wide thin tongue and groove panels from Lowe's that came with an insanely cheap price tag - 6x 8' panels for $15. I tore down some old 4'x8' painted wood paneling from my bedroom ceiling and installed these planks using 1" tack pins and Liquid Nails adhesive. I love the final result that next summer I'll be redoing my entire upstairs with these planks.


DIY Wood Stained Staircase Risers

Posted by Dave Eddy on 18 Aug 2016 - tags: diy

My house had some ceramic tiles on the staircase risers that were... not my favorite. My mom had actually come up with the idea when I first bought the house to cut pieces to fit from a quarter inch sheet of Lauan plywood and stain and seal it - Two years later I finally did it!
