BUILD IT: WALL MOUNTED SURF RACK

surfrack

Allow me to explain one scenario that will force you to get creative with your living space. In short – being a surfer with an always evolving quiver of boards. Wait, I mean being a surfer with an evolving quiver while living in a small space. Scratch that. What I really meant to say was, […]


A MAGAZINE RACK FOR THE “OFFICE”

magrack

I do some of my best reading in the (ah-hem), “office, ” and for months I’ve had magazines scattered across the floor. Don’t get me wrong, it’s been a fun and dangerous trick–balancing on slick coated paper on top of wet linoleum first thing in the morning.

I’d like to think I’m a pretty good gift giver. Seriously, I pay attention to people’s interests and listen to what they say.

Now this here wall sconce was a cinch to make. A few random pieces pulled together from the scrap heap. A little carpentry and electrical know-how and you’ll be shining bright (or dim) in no time.


CHICKEN SALAD FROM CHICKEN SHIT

We like to build shit here at The Anchor. Case in point is this here coat rack we just made out of a scrap piece of 2′ x 4′ we dug out of a dumpster and some old rusty nails. A few bangs of the hammer and voila. Chicken salad from chicken shit as we […]
