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.

Shoe racks. Bar carts. Christmas trees. We’ve built a lot of things out of gas pipe over the years–including one of very own coat racks based heavily on this design. We’re not going to say that Ryan Plett started the entire trend of building furniture out of industrial pipe, but this project is definitely one of the first that we ever saw. His tutorial on You Have Broken The Internet has everything you need (except tools, materials and clothes) to make your own sweet coat rack. Trust us, people will not shut up about this coat rack once they see it.

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.
