A How-To video on repairing a chair leg. There are multiple ways of doing this, but this way worked best for me. Hopefully this gives you some ideas on how to repair your broken chair leg. Enjoy.
This an update to the boat mover dolly I created in 2014: http://www.justinchristie.ca/2014/10/01/building-a-boat-dolly/ After some repeated use I discovered that the bicycle tires I free-cycled were not coping well with the combined weight of the dolly and boat. The tires were starting to buckle, and one of them had a slow rim leak. The threaded 1/2″ […]
With the purchase of a Dolphin American 12 Jon boat, I needed a way to transport it to the the river. The solution? Build a boat dolly on wheels. I managed to find a free set of bicycle wheels that someone was parting with – I freshened them up with a coat of paint. I began with […]
I purchased an older Evinrude 2hp boat motor (model E2RCNE), and I wanted an easy way to store and service it – the obvious solution is to build a motor stand/dolly. I started off with a ‘movers dolly’ from Princess Auto – it was made of hardwood and on sale for $14. This gave me […]

When replacing the EVAP purge valve (valve that re-circulates the gases in the gas tank) the embedded nuts in the canister rust-weld and fall right out – especially for those in a northern climate. To fix this, remove the embedded nuts entirely and go to your local automotive store to pick up a pair of […]
I was doing some measurements for a turbo installation. It’s been a while since I touched the engine bay, so I thought i’d post a picture of it’s current state.
The grading on our property had a ditch at the north side. Unfortunately it was in the area where a planned shed was going to go. We could not alter our grading because of the municipal engineering for water drainage. So a base was required (with footings) to lift the shed above the grade. Before […]
