This year for my birthday my parents gave me a circular saw. Total surprise, I had no idea this is what they were getting me. All the best gifts usually are surprises, just like my speak n spell in the 1st grade. But I digress. Now, to some this might seem odd, but I grew up as “Daddy’s Helper” my whole life so to me power tools are exciting! My only problem was deciding what my first project should be! I saw some DIY scrabble wall tiles online and I felt like it would give me a good chance to get used to the saw and make lots of short, straight cuts. And I’m happy to say that it worked like a charm. Project #2 is on schedule for this weekend!
Cut and sanded – 22 blocks of wood just waiting to become scrabble tiles.
I found some scrabble tile printables online, resized them to 6×6 and did a quick pencil trace transfer then painted them with black paint.
2 coats of stain applied while watching The Princess Bride - Mawage. Mawage is wot bwings us togeder tooday…..You Warthog faced buffon!
And it’s up! I totally love it! Eventually there will be photos on each side, but for now, we move on to project #2 – a blanket ladder!
