Happy 2019, everyone! Yes, I know we’re in February but I haven’t yapped at you all on here since the end of last year.  I thoroughly enjoyed my blogging break in January.  Don’t think I was sitting back, not doing a thing, though!  January was pretty busy for 7MD and there doesn’t appear to be [...]

Shop Light Upgrade

2018-08-21T22:16:27+00:00

It’s been a minute since I’ve shared a Shop Upgrade Series installment with you so let’s remedy that today!  I promise this one is super quick and requires only basic tools. Earlier this year I swapped out my hardwired lights in the garage for some LED strip lights.  Like most standard garage lights, the bulbs [...]

Remember not all that long ago when we were all complaining of having to work in such cold conditions because of winter?  And how we said we couldn’t wait until summer?  Can I go back to winter now?  It’s so stinking hot and I know that I’m not the only one having to suffer through [...]

You know what I haven’t shared in a while?  A new Shop Upgrade Series installment. One year ago, I was in the midst of my 30 Shop Upgrade (check out parts 1 and 2 here!).  I can look around my shop today and say “well, that sure didn’t last long.”  The place is an absolute [...]

A Look Back – April 2018

2018-04-24T12:50:49+00:00

April, April, April…You had me running like crazy.  Let’s dive in with both feet and rehash what happened! I started out the beginning of the month with one of my favorite builds to date – a lumber cart.  I have fallen in love with this thing.  I designed it to work for smaller shops and [...]

DIY Lumber Cart for Small Spaces

2018-04-04T02:40:53+00:00

Who’s ready for another installment of the Shop Upgrade Series??  I don’t know about you, but I know my shop is.  Possibly the biggest hurdle in shop organization is lumber and scrap storage.  It’s slowly taking over my shop and every time I try to clean it out, I want to keep it all.  You [...]

It’s time for another installment of the Shop Upgrade Series!  I promise this one is quick and easy.  Like, I surprised myself how fast it went.  I was watching stories on Instagram one day and saw Tim at Woodward Builds (I promise I’m not going to copy him for every upgrade! Ha!) had posted a [...]

Shop Upgrade Series – Gloves

2018-02-05T03:02:18+00:00

If you’ll recall last summer, I suffered through took on a 30 day shop upgrade challenge.  It was hard.  You can check out my projects here and here.  I loved the result at the end, though, and have made other upgrades since then.  Since there is always room for improvement and one upgrade every month [...]
