Click here to SUBSCRIBE to the official This Old House YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=thisoldhouse Cost: $50 Skill Level: Moderate Tools List for Revitalizing a Lawn:
Core aerator
Shovel
Rake
Spreader
Water hose Shopping List:
Compost
Starter Lawn Fertilizer
Grass seed Steps:
1. Aerate the lawn using a core aerator. Make passes up and down the lawn and then do perpendicular passes.
2. Sprinkle roughly ½” of compost on top of the lawn. Use the back of the rake to work the compost down into the holes made by the aerator.
3. Put the fertilizer in the spreader and apply it to the lawn.
4. Put grass seed in the spreader and apply it to the lawn. Use the back of the rake to work it in.
5. Give everything a good watering. Resources:
Roger used a core aerator to add small holes to the lawn. It can be rented at tool rental houses and home centers. Roger then applied compost, which is available at home centers and garden centers. Roger applied Turf Builder Starter Food for New Grass, which is a fertilizer high in phosphorous to promote root growth. He then spread Turf Builder Grass Seed Sun and Shade Mix, which is coated to help lock in moisture. Both of these are manufactured by Scotts (https://www.scotts.com/en-us). All the other tools for this project, including a broadcast spreader and lawn rake are available at home centers and nurseries.

Watch the full episode: https://www.thisoldhouse.com/watch/ask-toh-lawn-care-futuristic-workshop Ask This Old House general contractor Tom Silva travels to a workshop in San Francisco to build a stool using computer-based tools. Click here to SUBSCRIBE to the official This Old House YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=thisoldhouse Steps:
1. When using computerized equipment, begin by designing the finished piece using a 3D CAD program.
2. A laser printer is often used for etching metal and glass, but it can also be used for making a physical model using plywood.
3. A 3D printer can prototype smaller sections of the design, like where two joints come together and how stock hardware interfaces with the 3D model.
4. A water jet uses a high-pressure stream of water mixed with garnet to cut the aluminum legs and base, including countersinks, mortises, and tenons.
5. A CNC router can mill the wood top using several different cutter heads.
6. The final assembly takes place by hand. Resources:
Tom visited Autodesk at Pier 9 (https://www.autodesk.com/pier-9). The stool he built was based on a design by Matt Hutchinson, a designer at PATH (http://patharc.com/). Follow This Old House and Ask This Old House: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ThisOldHouse

Screw driver
Stud finder Shopping List:
Mounting shelf racks
Mounting brackets Steps:
1. Create additional shelving by mounting shelf racks to studs against the wall. The racks should come with mounting brackets designed to hold a shelf.
2. If the studs are located in a less-than-ideal location, there are brackets designed to receive the mounting shelf racks. The brackets can be screwed to structure and the racks can slide in the bracket as necessary.
3. The mounting shelf racks can also hold hook or basket attachments.
4. There are also wire shelves that can be held in with small plastic brackets that connect to the shelf at any location, allowing the brackets to easily be mounted to structure. Resources:
Everything Tom demonstrated, including the wire shelving, wall mounts, and corner brackets, can all be found at home centers.
