Hi guys, I am here to share my experience in repairing our old couch at home. I was actually thinking of having it disposed of but I decided to mend it myself to use it on the other side of our home. At first, I could have not thought how to begin it myself but I watched the YouTube videos and read some forums to make it through. I can’t say, it was easy but it was really an amazing activity for me as I finished it in almost 2 to 3 weeks. I canvassed for the best quality but affordable fabric for the sofa and I purchased foam as a replacement to the old one. We always want to have a soft sofa for the safety of our children too. The wood forming the couch must be well-covered to avoid any accident when someone bumped into it especially our toddler. Always remember that you have to find out the specific spaces where you’re going to patch your new fabric. It is best for you to check if the woods are not damaged yet and have no termites too. You may use a gun tucker to support the foam you’re patching on the wood. Before you patch your fabric, scrutinize the textile around the hole. You may decide that you need a bigger patch to coat any frays in the area. Because the patch is larger than the hole it’s covering, pin around the edges, pinning through the patch and the garment underneath. And, here’s the result… See how a beginner like me did it. I know I can improve it in the future… Have faith!
Hi guys, I am back to you again to share with you another idea of housing through recycled materials and in this project I will be showing how I am making a practical coat hanger using reclaimed pallet wood. First of all! Join us here at MyATCtv DIY to see more... And check out our sponsor product at: Walabot DIY In the image here, you can already see can already have a look of the final result: Here is a quick preview video of the build: If you would like to receive a free 3D plan feel free to join our newsletter ( where we are providing our weekly 3D plan via our commenting program) via the below links depending of your language: www.atc-c.com Before starting please find here a list of tools you might need in order to do it yourself: Tool used: Plunge saw Hammer Thickness planer Stainless construction ruler Carpenter frame square Miter saw Table saw Router table Double Flute Straight Bit Roundover Edging Router Bit Band saw Disc sander Transparent spray lacquer White paint Blow torch And more below... We put together a list of some of the tools used in the shop on our Amazon Store (affiliate link), if you'd like to support what we do, shop through this link: MyATCtv Amazon Store Step 1: Dismantle the pallet wood The best for this step will be to use 2 hammers to dismantle the pallet and remove the nails from the wood. Step 2: Cleaning and reducing the wood thickness To clean and reduce the wood thickness, I will be here using a Metabo planer for the larger piece of wood and also the pallet wood slats. When done with this I have all cleaned and ready to be worked on Step 3: Designing and cutting the wood To trace the different lines and other forms I will be using my construction ruler and my frame square. Step 4: The power tool cut At this stage, I am first using my miter saw to cut and remove the broken and dirty part of the wood Then moving after my table saw Here i can already see how i would place the different wooden slats to form the design. Then moving the router table to round up the edges on the wall support wood using the round over Edging Router Bit. After that i am moving to the band saw to design the different hooks which will be fixed on the wooden support. But before fixing them to each other I will first smooth down the edges using my disc sander Then creating the openings using again my router but this time with a straight bit And here we are with the wooden slat inserted into the wall support To make sure they stay attached, i will be using screws inserted from the back of the support (before screwing i will advise you to pre-drill the holes to avoid breaking the wood) To finally create 2 holes which will help you to hang the design to the wall Before putting on the wall I will advise you to double check if you don't have any pipes or cables by using a Walabot DIY device which happens to be the sponsor for this project. If you need more information about this device please check the following link: Walabot DIY Et Voila!!! When done and if trying this recycled project, you should end up with a pretty nice hanger coat in your house I hope that you like this project and if this is the case, leave a comment below to let me know what you think!

Pallet wood can be used for so many things!!! And in this video, i will be sharing with you a nice and simple way to craete some crate boxes for your home. Here they have been created in order to place some wood below a chimney. Below, I am sharing one of the final pictures with you but if you would like to see more... Check out the full youtube video Tutorial! Tools Used: Dust Mask Table saw Miter Saw Reciprocating saw Chisel hammer Sand Paper Sander Nail gun and more below... We put together a list of some of the tools used in the shop on our Amazon Store (affiliate link), if you'd like to support what we do, shop through this link: MyATCtv Amazon Store One of the first steps will be to find some good pallets to start this project: Then when you have them all, it's time to dismantle them all in order to keep the wooden slat. After removing each slats, you should end up with something looking pretty much like that And remove the nails... Then now it's time for us to clean each side of slat with a thickness planer. When cone with the cleaning, I am moving to my miter saw to cut each slat with the appropriate measurement. After cutting them all here is the result: So basically here are the number of slats you will need to create one crate boxe (12 for the frame and 4 for the bottom part). And to round up a little bit the edges, I have decided to use my router. After the router, I've moved to my disc sander to smooth down the surface... Note that the corners will be held using some scrap wood I have in my workshop and then cut them in half using a table saw . Then when they are all ready, it's time to assemble then all To attach the slats to each other, I am using here a nail gun Here I am done with the main frame... Then adding 4 slats for the bottom side... And here we are... 5 crate boxes, easily made and giving some extra storage space in the living room Here is a quick preview video of the build: Let me know below what you think about this build and idea!!!
