ED­I­TOR’S LET­TER

Do It Yourself - - DEPARTMENTS - Brian Kramer Ed­i­tor, Do It Your­self ª

What can you ac­com­plish in a sin­gle day? A heck­uva lot—if this time-fo­cused is­sue of Do It Your­self is any in­di­ca­tion. Sim­ply pick your project, gather the right sup­plies, and go!

If you can find a few hours this evening or week­end, we’ve got a project you’re go­ing to love. Cast a light­weight con­crete lamp­shade or bench base in a few hours (“Take a Seat,” page 98). Build one of three cozy out­door fire pits in an af­ter­noon (“Fire Side,” page 62). Cus­tom­ize a sheet of ply­wood into five dif­fer­ent head­boards be­fore bed­time (“ZZZs, Please,” page 68). And fill in any re­main­ing free time with one of a half dozen clever pil­low up­grades (“Iden­tity Swap,” page 58).

So clear your cal­en­dar, make your DIY to-do list, and pre­pare for ma­jor change this week­end.
