DIY Centre

When Reg Hermes, Pyramid Builder won the tender to put up the Grand Pyramid you can bet he would have loved to jump online and watch a video about how to move large blocks of stone across dry sand. Well, we’re in the process of building a library of interesting and fun DIY projects to share with you. Everything from castle and siege catapult construction to whacking together a kennel for Aunty Maude’s French bulldog ... or even a Snow Globe for Christmas. Lots of fun projects for the family but also for the more serious jobs around the home and garden. You can also view  FACT SHEETS or links to some of our favourite blogs or watch a helpful DIY video.

If you've got some great DIY tips or you’ve perhaps documented the building of your combination nuclear shelter and underground tennis centre at your weekender at Bribie, we invite you to share with us and our visitors.  Email us the document and/or link and it could well find a place on our website, of course with an appropriate credit.

All published submissions will receive a $25 Gift Card.
