DIY-Furniture

DIY projects are a lot like cooking your meals at home—you’re saving money, gaining a bit of satisfaction and often cursing and throwing things by the end of the night. We all know our way around a table saw, but when it comes to DIY projects, far too often it’s the creative spark that leaves us with a coffee table reminiscent of something in the discount bin at Ikea. For some projects that you’d be proud to put on display, pick up a copy of DIY Furniture. Featuring more than 30 crafts from the world’s best design-minds, this book/manual will have you creating usable works of art in no time. Just make a quick trip to Ace or Home Depot and follow the simple plans to have a home that collectively costs less than the one distress leather chair you want from Restoration Hardware.

Whether you’re trying to refine your archery skills or just get a leg up on the competition when it comes to office warfare, the BB Sniper mini crossbow from Uncommon Carry will fit the bill. Handmade out of stainless steel and equipped with a self-loading chamber, the BB Sniper is designed to hurl projectiles like toothpicks or mini BBs with surprising accuracy at a range of about 30-50 feet. Make sure to schedule some time for target practice because this addictive little crossbow can do some damage. Have fun, but avoid the sensitive areas.
