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.

You don’t have to look too far to realize that geometric shelving is all the rage these days. With some simple geometry and a few power tools, you can make your own triangle shelves out of whatever wood you have lying around in about an hour. Most importantly, they can be completely customized to your size and style requirements, and they’ll end up looking better than the big box alternatives. Manda over at The Merrythought has a helpful DIY Wooden Triangle Shelves tutorial that gives you everything you need but the wood and tools. She even did the Math for us!

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.
