"R" is for Ryobi Giveaway & Announcement

Ana White and I have joined forces again for another Handmade Holiday series.
One new plan for gifts you can build each week for the next 12 weeks!

We will officially begin the 2014 series on Friday, October 3rd with the first new gift build plan.
It's top secret so no peeking (okay maybe some peeking on Instagram :))!

And thanks to our friends at Ryobi we're starting off the 2014 Handmade Holiday series with an awesome giveaway:

One lucky winner will start the holiday season on a bright note with this Ryobi 18V One+ 6 piece ultimate combo kit!

Included in the combo kit:
- drill/driver
- impact driver
- multi-tool
- reciprocating saw
- circular saw
- worklight

Plus a great carrying bag, two lithium batteries and a battery charger.  Everything you need to get started on all those handmade holiday gift builds Ana and I will be sharing over the next 12 weeks.

I use at least one of my Ryobi tools for every single project.

The circular saw is great for ripping and cutting but did you know it also makes beveled cuts?  I used the bevel on this bench.

I promise you will make use of every single tool in that combo kit so why not enter the giveaway now?
