Creative Designs on Wood using the Dewalt DW788 20" Variable Speed Scroll Saw

Dewalt DW788 20
We enjoy scrolling as a hobby and have done lots of small projects on a smaller entry level scroll saw. Scroll sawing is the art of making intricate cuts in wood or metal to create different patterns and objects. We enjoy doing woodworking projects on a regular basis, and using the scroll saw has taken woodworking to another level for us.

DIY Embroidery Top Wooden Stool

We wanted to a customize and make our own DIY wooden stool with a soft cushion top that can be used as an extra seating, a table, or a footstool. The colours we used are inspired by our love for Moroccan and Bohemian designs and colours. We feel this gives the punch of colour we want to make the interior of our home feel brighter even during the long winter seasons!

Fun Board Games to Encourage Learning

how to build a game cart
I believe playing board games with our children is a fun way for us to get involved in teaching lifelong skills such as problem solving, team playing, communication skills, and help in the development of cognitive thinking. It is so much easier to shop for these toys for children in all ages right from the comfort of our home through Amazon.ca.

Our dad's will enjoy getting colourful, useful books like this Do It Yourself and Woodwork, as the information on these books will help do quick fixes and larger projects. These go-to books are simple, easy to follow, and has lots of practical tips and techniques.
