Kim Six from The Kim Six Fix blog was our guest today. If you’ve never heard Kim do a video or interview, you are in for a treat! She’s so much fun to talk to and hang out with. If you listened to last week’s show, Cher from Designs by Studio C and I were talking about an upcoming “one board” challenge and how awesome Kim’s project was going to be. Be sure to check out her first scroll saw project, a wooden basket/bowl.

Can you believe this is her FIRST scroll saw project?
Kim has some great tips about finding out exactly what tools you will want to add to your collection. You will love listening to her talk about her selection of tools, and which are her favorites. Kim schooled me on picking up some “no name” brand batteries on Amazon. She picked up an off brand Makita battery that is holding up well. Kim shares with us why you might NOT want to pick up tools at thrift stores. Oh my! Kim talks about her lawnmower, and it makes me chuckle.
Kim shared a story about installing bead board in her home and her son’s new bed, using her favorite tool. (click play to listen to this week’s episode for all the details)
Kim discusses using a circular saw to rip 2x4’s because she didn’t own a table saw to make an awesome West Elm inspired Mirror. Kim compares sawing to quilting, only Kim could do that.
I love Kim’s favorite repurposed project on her blog, it’s made from a repurposed crib, and she has the sweetest reason for it being her favorite.
Kim’s question to me is “what is your favorite part of blogging and why do you keep it up, even though the face of blogging is changing”.
Thank you Kim for hanging out with DIY with MRL!
