Laughing Squid has some great photos and videos of a recent power tool drag race. From the looks of it, the event was held in some sort of post-apocalyptic Road Warrior compound, but on further investigation, it's just San Francisco. We're not sure what Bondage Barbie has to do with anything, but.....
We just got word about Blog Cabin, a DIY Network project that has a really cool concept behind it. The deal is that you, the internet savvy viewers, go to the DIY website and vote on the various aspects of construction and the cabin gets built according to popular vote. At the moment, the voting is open for paint colors and the landscaping.
There are all sorts of other cool things over at the website; videos, updates, the cabin cam and of course, the voting.
Yesterday we told you about Scotts 20" push mower and while it may be nice, quiet, and all right for the Birkenstock wearers, there's one thing you'll never be able to do with it; strip it down and turn it into a high performance drag racer.
We can't imagine that anyone would ever look at a blowing leaf pile and think, "I bet if I encased that pile in a crunchy corn syrup-like product, it wouldn't be able to blow away." We also can't imagine that enough people would approve of the idea in order for it to make it to market. But it's out there and it's called Toro's Leaf Lock.
This Old House has info on Leaf Lock and almost 20 other bizarre gardening products over at their site. Check it out here.
...And you thought that doing the bathroom renovation was difficult. Here's a guy who spends his time figuring out how to move 90,000 pound rocks around his yard. He does it all by himself with no modern technology whatsoever. The video is sort of long (over 6 minutes), but it's worth the watch.
Since we're feeling pretty lazy this morning, we're just going to glom onto the hard work and effort of others. Here's what else is going on around the tool blogging world:
Tool King has just released their own line of tools called TKTools. At the moment it looks like they've got a few cordless drills and a nice looking driver. Their blog, Toologics, has all the info here and here. Check out the bit case that comes with the driver. Whoa.
