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.


...But 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 a hack 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).
