I love to build for the

I love to build for the satisfaction that comes from it. I love that I can get the "perfect" piece of furniture for what I need. Building my 2 year old's bed while I was 7 months pregnant was hard, but so rewarding- he loves his big boy bed!

It is so rewarding to build something on your own and you get to tell people, "Yeah I built that!"

I love to feel that accomplishment at the end and look at my work and think to myself "I built that! I created that to my exact expectations".

Why I love to build!

I love to build because I can give the piece of furniture my own personal touches and it fits my needs exactly. :D

I love to build not only

I love to build not only because it gives me a creative outlet but because I love the idea of producing furniture and belongings that I can pass on to my kids - items that mean something and can remind them and perhaps even great-grandchildren of their heritage when I am gone...

Question

"Why do you love to build?"

I love to build because I sit in an office ALL day long and it is my one and only creative outlet. I also like saving a few bucks in the process!!

Yo,
Jake

Why I love to build?

Because I'm too creative to settle for what's available out there to buy, and building something quality yourself is so much cheaper than settling!

Quality time with my boys.

The main reason I love building is the opportunity to learn new things and spend time with my boys. My boys are 5 and 2. Each of them helped me build their big boy beds and it is a great time to spend individual time with them. They also get to learn skills that I see dissappearing in todays society.

I love to make things myself because I try to be thrifty and I love the satisfaction of seeing something I made. :)

What a great opportunity, thanks for the chance to win! A Kreg Jig is the one tool we are missing to build a lot of the furniture on the to-do list!

Why I love to build

Why I love to build

I have not really built anything yet. Just married asked for gift cards so I can buy lumber and such. I got a table saw for Christmas! Just wait to use it. Hubby needs to clean out the garage so everyday I say to you going to clean it!!:0

Why do I love to build?

I love to build because it satisfies a deep seeded need in me :)
I come from builders and creators and the lot of us are never satisfied with what is already out there, so we do it ourselves!

I build because I feel like I accomplished something by making something for myself or family. I know its of good quality, where it came from and it didnt cost a lot of money.

answer for giveaway

As a stay at home mom, money is always tight. Building the things we need we our own tow hands helps me contribute to our household. Knowing I can build something that before seemed so out of reach is an extremely powerful feeling. I CAN DO IT. That's right no cheap furniture put together with allen wrenches from a box. I pick my wood, my screws, my glue and I can BUILD something beautiful. I will build it and it will be BEAUTIFUL.

Why I Build!

I like to build because when I'm done, there is a finished product. As a parent of 4, there's really no END product. Just a continuous work in progress. So building is deeply satisfying in that way!

KregJig

I love to build for several reasons. First and foremost it is a tribute to my dad, who passed away in 2008. He taught me so much about woodworking, car repair, lawn care, and so much more that now as an adult I can do these things.
Secondly I'm teaching my children that home-made is not only acceptable most times it's better! You can find something that's broken and make it new again instead of making more trash. Right now my son and I are re-doing a chair we found on the side of the road, he's 5, and I love seeing the excitement that he now has for redoing and building!

Why do I love to build?

I love to build for several reasons. I'm cheap, and I get quality solid wood pieces for my home for pennies on the dollar versus the cost to buy the same pre-made. I love to create. I love to see a piece come together and know that *I* built it. It is so awesome, and I am SO thankful for you and your site, Ana!

WHY do I love to build?~

There's a lot of satisfaction that comes with creating something that is not only functional but beautiful! Projects using wood achieve both and isn't it great to tell someone that you made it? I loooove seeing the look on people's faces! With your help, Ana, I've been able to build furniture that I could only dream of buying!

Because...

I love to build because it keeps my stress levels low. I can go in the garage and build something to add to my home or to give someone knowing no one else has made the exact same thing. I have added pieces to our house that I never thought we'd be able to afford. And I love that Ana has provided the plans for us to build!!

I was considering buying one of these today for a desk I need to build next week! I have not done much building yet, only a few small things, but I love knowing that I CAN build something that will be exactly what I want, beautiful and better quality than what I would be able to afford at Ikea or elsewhere!

It's so gratifying

to know that every piece of what I build is there because I put it there! I am an avid cook as well, and knowing my ingredients is the same feeling. I feel good knowing every piece of what goes into what I make.
