Our average trips to Home Depot are generally born out of necessity: the toilet is running, or the closet needs more poles (no doubt for her clothes) or the stench of sheer manliness is permeating the otherwise humble abode. Every once in a while though, a project idea strikes and we go “shopping.” But even those projects are pale in comparison to Andrew Myers 3D Screw Portrait Murals. Composed almost entirely of screws (numbering well into the thousands) affixed at different depths, each three dimensional portrait is a true work of art and represents a dedication to the DIY craft that we just don’t have – without serious prodding of course.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
