I do DIY projects in woodworking, cabinets, shop furniture, fix-it, upgrade it, and whatever needs doing.
Come with me and learn from my mistakes.


...And I learn everyday through just trying stuff.

Hey, I'm Darin

... and I am a DIY guy because I looked at something that needed to be done and said, "I can make that." (see what I did there?) It turns out, I could make it. Not always perfect, but I learn each time and get better.

I post videos of my projects to both show how I did it and show the mistakes I made so maybe you could see that if someone like me can make it, so can you... and you have the added bonus of learning from my mistakes.

Thanks for being here.


I am not bragging (obviously) but I do like to watch the numbers grow (ever so slowly).
