Ragtag Do-It-Yourself Weekly Challenge

I've kept the rules simple and few, so everyone will feel free to dive in.

1. Choose 3 items each from the Resources and Tools lists.

2. Explain how you built your virtual project.

3. Pass the challenge along to someone else so we can swap as many ideas as possible. Who knows, they just may have the solution you need to a pesky problem or a suggestion that fits your situation like a glove!

4. Use #diyragtag so we can find your post.

Here's an example:

RAGTAG RESOURCES - Pick Three

Two 2x8 Boards, 8 ft. long ~ Old Window
A Dozen Bricks ~ A Large Plastic Tarp


TOOLS - Pick Three

Hammer ~ Saw ~ Drill ~ Shovel ~ Cart ~ Ax ~ Wedge
Trowel ~ Staple Gun ~ Post Hole Digger

-
Your choice on power or hand tools. Fasteners are freebies.
******

PROJECT: COLD FRAME

Use the saw to cut the boards in half, making 4' lengths, 8" wide.
Use the hammer & some nails to make a 4'x4' square box that is 8" tall.
Place the box over plants to extend the growing season by protecting them from frost/freezing.
Put the window on top of the box to make a mini green house out of it.
Use the bricks as needed to adjust for venting and/or raising the height of the box and/or the window to accommodate plant height.
Use the cart to haul your harvest to the kitchen.


The challenge will run from Saturday to Saturday.

This one is tough. I feel like no matter what I think up I am short something. :(
