Few years ago I built a heavy duty picnic table for the back yard. All 2x6 pressure treated 7'6" long. It was a PITA to move by myself, and dug up what passes for my lawn if I dragged it. So I added some wheels on the legs...now easy to move to mow, pull it into the shade or sunshine depending on what you want. Sometimes I pull it up close to the back door to use as a work bench. Just gotta make sure 3 or 4 fat folks don't sit on the same side all at once.

Never had a good idea but do have a lot that never worked out.

Will add this one that might be a good idea, at least worked well for me. Bought a cheap tool cart just top and bottom shelf to use in the yard when I'm doing something to keep tools and parts on.

My left mouse key was misfiring due to light strikes. I built it up with some super glue, now fires 100%. Doesn't show in pics. :drink:

Nice idea on the picnic table!

I had built an elevated playhouse for the kids at least 25 years ago. It had become an eyesore and the wife wanted me to tear it down. Instead I had a buddy help me get it lowered with his skid-steer and I made my wife a "She Shed" out of it. I had to open up the door entrance another foot and replaced some of the siding. I think it turned out nice. She uses it as a garden shed and keeps her bluebird stuff in it. Think I'll add some window boxes and maybe shrubs, etc at some point.

Can I play?


Installed my air compressor in the basement, because it won't start in cold weather. The oil is too thick when it is cold out.

I ran black pipe out through the wall into the garage.

In the garage I have an on-off switch, a pressure gauge and two air quick disconnects.

(For some reason there is a sideways picture that I can't seem to edit out.)

I like that idea. I've been thinking of doing the same type deal and have an air connection by the garden hose bib at the front of the house for dealing with tires. Too much of a PITA to drag the thing out, so most of the time I just use the little cigarette lighter powered unit that takes forever and a day to press up the truck tires.

Heck... where I lived in NM, a family of 4 would have lived in it

I cured myself of bad headaches and indigestion once by throwing out all my Windows computers.
Does that count?
