Doing It Yourself isn’t always the easiest or cheapest option, but odds are you won’t find anything more satisfying than finishing a DIY project with your own two hands. Each week, we’re going to showcase one cool DIY project tutorial from around the web.

Much like the bench we told you about before, every home needs a quality bar. If you’re going to build one yourself, you might as well make it awesome by using concrete and iron pipe. Ben Uyeda, the same guy that’s responsible for that awesome pipe bench we just talked about, created an excellent tutorial for HomeMade Modern about how to build your very own bar with concrete and iron pipe. If you’ve got some tools, around $200 and four hours of time, you’ll be serving cocktails in style.

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
