5:00 am
>> male announcer: the following is a paid advertisement for dr-ho's physio belt, brought to you by dr-ho's. >> hi. i'm john cremeans. welcome to our show, "living without back pain." do you suffer with back pain hip pain, or shooting pain that runs down your legs? well, stay tuned and discover how others just like you have found the new way to relieve their back pain. >> it's really funny. i just put the belt on. i've had it on for about a minute, and already, there is a reduction in pain that i have in a particular spot on my back. it's weird. i didn't think it would work so fast. >> the belt allowed me to walk for the first time in a year without a cane. >> have years of back pain changed who you are? are you tired of not being able to do what you want to do?
5:01 am
>> i have a compressed vertebrate, fourth and fifth vertebrae, and it's affecting my leg. >> if my back pain was managed i'd be able to play baseball fishing, all the things i used to do. >> well, today, we have a renowned pain specialist who has developed an incredible new innovation to help relieve lower back pain. dr. michael ho has over 20 years of clinical experience treating patients with chronic pain. he's been recognized for his ability to relieve pain safely and effectively by targeting the cause of the pain. combining innovation and clinical science, he's developed many well-known and effective home therapy products that are helping millions around the world. today, dr. ho will demonstrate his new hophysio belt, designed to decompress the lower back to relieve pain. please welcome dr. michael ho. >> hello, john. >> hey, doctor. >> hi, everyone. first of all, i'd like to thank all my patients and customers out there for all your trust support, and referrals over the years. thank you very much.
5:02 am
>> let's get right to it though. what is the secret to relieving back pain? >> you know, john, after years of treating back patients, i can tell you that most back problems are mechanical nature. most back pain is caused by a combination of muscle tension, stiff joints, and degenerative discs and pinched nerves. >> so, if the cause is mechanical, taking a pill's not gonna solve the problem. >> you've got that right. you know, while taking a pill seems easy, there is no magic pill for back pain. taking drugs can be detrimental to your health. on the other hand, john, decompression or traction therapy is a proven technique for relieving back pain. and after years of research and development, i'm very proud to say i have designed a new decompression belt that can instantly help relieve your back pain anywhere, anytime. >> so, how does it work? >> john, it's much more than a regular support belt. when pumped up, it increases in height to stretch your tight muscles and decompress your joints and discs to help relieve your back pain. when it rises, it also lifts and unloads the weight of the upper body off your lower back so the
5:03 am
muscles can relax. >> well, that sounds like something i could use. can i try it? >> absolutely. but before we put the belt on, i want you to step up on the posture podium here. >> okay. >> because i want to measure your spinal alignment before we put the belt on to see how my hophysio belt can help you. >> all right. >> okay, good. you're in the right spot. >> well, anything that can improve my posture is gonna be great. >> okay. can you look straight ahead, please? >> okay. >> oh, john. i see why you're getting back pain, okay. you're slouching forward about three inches. okay. >> that's not good. >> hang on. i'm gonna measure your height. see? i think i know why you got back pain. when you're slouching, you put strain on your back. >> oh, no. that's not good. >> now, step down here. i want you to put my belt on and see how this belt will help with your posture and your back pain. >> all right. >> this is a very easy belt to use. we just clip the hose on. >> okay. >> and it works by foot pump. just go ahead. pump it up. >> okay. [ air hissing ] >> as you can see, the belt is rising. >> i can feel it, too. >> it's lifting the upper body and it's stretching your back. now that it's full, we can just un-clip it, and you go on with your day. >> i mean, i fell taller.
5:04 am
i feel straighter. i can feel my back looking good. my entire core feels like it's being completely stretched and supported. i mean, i can't believe how much better my back is feeling. >> you definitely look better, okay? well, why don't you step back up on the posture podium, 'cause i want to measure your posture now. >> all right. >> okay, look straight ahead again. >> okay. >> [ chuckles ] you're looking better! okay, i can see you have straightened up by almost two inches, and you're actually taller now by...almost an inch. >> you know, this is starting to make sense. with the belt on, you stop slouching, and that reduces the strain and pain on your back. >> that's right. >> you know what? this really works. it's giving me great support. it feels comfortable. it doesn't restrict my breathing. matter of fact, you know what? i bet i can go to work and nobody would even know i have this on. it's that comfortable. >> it's not bulky at all. >> now, how does my tummy look? does it look flatter? >> you look like you've lost some weight. you're looking good, man. >> that's a good thing. >> i've had pretty bad back pain for about three years. i've gone through different
5:05 am
physiotherapists, chiropractors. i have dr. ho's belt on right now, and i definitely feel an improvement in my back. you kind of feel taller. the pain in my lower back's definitely gone away. i've had some comments, of course, on, "hey, did you lose some weight? you look thinner." so, that's always a good thing. >> i've got no pain, and i feel great. >> dr. ho, who should be using this belt? >> you know, john, i highly recommend my hophysio belt for anyone with back pain, hip pain, or radiating leg pain. >> i've had lower back pain, and along with my lower back pain, i've had problems in my legs. and both my back pain and the pain in my legs were gone away after wearing this belt. >> i'm very surprised that half an hour wearing the belt, it relieved the back pain, it actually got rid of it, and relieved the tingling sensation in my legs. >> john, my lower back is killing me because i'm carrying all this extra weight.
5:06 am
>> wow! >> but if i can take this weight off, my back will instantly feel better. and that's exactly how my belt works. it unloads the weight off your lower back. >> see, that makes sense. less pressure and work for your back muscles means less back pain. >> okay, john. give me a hand. put this fat belly on the weigh scale here. >> okay. >> because i want to show you how my belt can help to lift the weight off your lower back. okay, that's a lot of weight. >> now, imagine taking that kind of pressure off your sore back. >> look at this, john, okay? when i'm pumping it up, my belt will actually lift the weight off the lower back. so, we went from 20 to 8, 7, 6 5, 4 -- the weight just keeps decreasing because the belt will lift the upper body weight off the lower back. now, we're down to almost zero weight. it's like going out to space -- zero gravity. you know, my belt will help to relieve the pressure and the pain off your back. until now, the only way to decompress your back was to hang upside down or use a clinical decompression bed. >> i've no lower back pain when
5:07 am
i have this belt on, playing with the kids. i feel like i'm very supported. i feel that my lower back is decompressed. there's no compression. i can bend over. i can twist both directions. i can lift them up with no problems. >> should someone that uses those inversion tables or the big machines or decompression beds use this belt? >> yes, they do work. but once you stand up, the pain can quickly return. the problem is you can't go to a clinic every time your back hurts, and you can't travel with an inversion table. with my hophysio belt, you can use it every day at work, at home, cooking, gardening, caring for your children, playing sports, while you're traveling even in bed. it's a back-pain-relief belt designed to fit your lifestyle. >> see, i like the idea that you don't have to depend on anybody. >> most back patients need ongoing therapy they just can't afford. my belt can relieve the back pain and save them time and money. >> the way i see it, your hophysio belt makes home physio possible and affordable for
5:08 am
people with chronic back pain. >> before i put the belt on, my back was quite sore in the lower area, and after this half an hour, 20 minutes, whatever it's been, it's feeling a lot better now -- much, much better. >> my back feels great. and the best part about it is you can do it in the privacy of your own home, your car, at work. i feel like i don't have to keep going to physio, basically. i now have hophysio at home. >> if you suffer with back pain, if everything else has failed, you have to try my hophysio belt. why? because it works! no pills, no appointments, just less pain, less bills. with my belt, you can work better, play more, relax, and regain your passion for life. this is what you need! >> now stay tuned to find out how you can order your hophysio belt. >> female announcer: need relief

5:12 am
long-distance driving. and since i'm wearing this belt, i don't have any trouble whatsoever. i have no lower back pain, and it feels fantastic. >> dr. ho, how long should somebody wear the belt? >> well, john, in the first week, you should be wearing this belt for about three to four times a day for about 30 minutes each time. after that, as your back gets better, you can wear it whenever you need it or for as long as you like. i also recommend that you wear it while doing things that are hard on your back, like heavy lifting. >> i like it. [ laughs ] i want to keep it forever. don't take it. it's very nice. it makes my back feel straight it makes me relax, and it's very, very comfortable. >> you know, i've been treating back patients for over 20 years. i believe that anyone who does repetitive work is prone to back pain. if you sit, stand, lift, or bend a lot, you should be using my hophysio belt.
5:13 am
you'll love this belt! it's like having a customized back support that moves with you. it'll help to relieve your pain and save your back. >> you just feel like the pressure is right off your back, and you can run for miles and do whatever. >> being able to pick my daughter up is amazing and just embracing her and showing her love was impossible before. but now, with this belt, i can do it. >> anybody that's got a bad back is gonna love this. they're gonna love you, i'll tell you. [ chuckles ] >> dr. ho, is it better to sit or lie down when you're using the hophysio belt? >> well, john, both will work. you know, my belt will decompress your back whether you're standing, walking sitting, or lying down. when possible, i do recommend that you use my belt lying down because it's just much easier to decompress your back when you're not fighting gravity. and when you use my belt at night, you won't be tossing or turning or waking up with
5:14 am
nagging back pain in the morning. >> it's complete relief. it's amazing. i can't even describe it. i would never be able to lie on my back, and now i have no pain whatsoever. >> if you're getting a good night's rest, then you are more ready to face the next day. you have more energy, and you can be more successful in your job. >> look, john. this is a model of the spine. the white represents the bony vertebrae. the yellow's the disc. now, my finger is the nerve. look what happens when i put weights and pressure on the disc -- it flattens out. and the nerves get pinched. ow! this really hurts! now, if i take the weight off and the pressure off, no more pain. that's how my belt works. >> well, that makes sense. >> well, let's put the weight on the scale to show how my belt really helps with your back pain, okay? >> all right. >> go ahead and pump it up. see what happens when you pump this belt up? it increases in height to lift the upper body weight off the lower back. see the weight?
5:15 am
from 20 pounds right down to 6 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, zero weight. no more pressure on your back. my belt works by decompressing the spinal disc and the joints. it also stretches the tight muscles and keeps the weight off the lower back. that's how it helps to relieve your back pain without drugs or surgery. >> you can only take pain pills for so long, and it just masks it. it doesn't do anything. >> since i've been wearing the belt, things have improved. my back feels a lot better. i can do things that i wasn't able to do before. >> now, dr. ho, your hophysio belt clearly works wonders for people that have back pain from aging or injuries. but should someone with degenerative or perhaps even herniated discs use the belt? >> absolutely, john. i highly recommend it. look, this is a model of a degenerative back. the middle layer represents a degenerative disc. with degeneration, two problems can occur. first, the back becomes very unstable, forcing the muscles to
5:16 am
work really hard to hold your bones together. so, even the simple act of bending, oh, can trigger severe back pain with muscle spasms. now, my belt helps to keep the back together, supports the belt, and stabilizes your back to prevent it. second, a degenerative disc acts like a bulging tire. look what happens here. under pressure, it will actually bulge out or herniate. this causes irritation on the nerve, which causes back pain and possible leg pain. now, my belt helps to decompress, take the pressure off the disc, helps to reduce the herniation and nerve irritation. and this helps to relieve your back pain and relieve the leg pains, too. >> it's been bad for a long time, since last year. i haven't played golf since last august. i haven't been able to do anything. before, i had so much pain in my legs, i couldn't walk. >> well, mitch, it's really nice to see you walking. >> the belt allowed me to walk for the first time in a year without a cane. terrific. >> that's amazing, dr. ho!
5:17 am
how did your belt help him out? >> well, john, to look inside his body, we took an x-ray of mr. mitchell's back with and without the belt on. then we had a back specialist analyze the structure improvement. his results were extraordinary. with the x-ray on, look at this. his x-ray showed there was an increase in the disc space and when we look at this smooth line, it indicated improvement in the spinal alignment, and down here, we see there's an improvement in the stability of his lower back. >> so, your belt helped him with his mechanical deficiencies. >> that's right. >> and that's why his back, his legs, they're all working better and feeling better. >> mm-hmm. you know, that's right, john. you know, i've tested my belt on many people, and i'm confident that my belt will help you relieve your back pain like nothing else. and i can assure you all my testimonials are from real people just like you, people suffering chronic back pain who got relief using my belt. now, i want you to try my belt to see how it works for you, and i guarantee that it'll work for you. try my belt for 30 days. if you're not 100% satisfied
5:18 am
just return it for a full refund, no questions asked. it will change your life. >> so, what are you waiting for? call the number on your screen right now, and you could be free of back pain sooner than you could possibly dream. imagine waking up without back pain. with dr. ho's incredible hophysio belt, you can work more comfortably, play longer, feel more relaxed, and recapture the lifestyle that you've been missing for so long. so, pick up the phone or go online at hophysio.com to order your belt right now. >> female announcer: need relief from back aches and stiffness in your hips or down your legs? then you need dr. ho's back-relief belt. the innovative technology really works to support and decompress your spine. and now it's covered by medicare. put it on, pump it up, and enjoy therapeutic traction. ouch! every day, gravity compresses and tightens your spine, but dr. ho's belt supports straightens, and stretches your spine. what a relief! it's like an anti-gravity treatment. act now and enjoy gravity-defying relief for your

>> going to back clinics will cost you time and money. with my belt, you get remarkable results without the hassle at a very low cost. you know, similar belts can cost you almost $1,000, but my belt won't cost you $500, not $300, not even $200. in fact, i will give you my special tv price. >> female announcer: and remember, dr. ho's belt is covered by medicare. call now to get relief for your tired, achy back. don't delay. call now. >> call now t relief for your back. back pain doesn't have to limit your life. >> hi, and welcome back. we're here today with dr. michael ho. the hophysio decompression belt has helped back-pain patients throughout north america recapture something that their pain had taken away from their lives -- the joy of an active lifestyle. dr. ho, who else has tested your hophysio belt? >> john, i've tested my belt on many people, from golfers, football players, paramedics gardeners, people who like to walk, people who like to cook, office and factory workers
5:21 am
people who drive a lot, and parents with small children. this belt works, and doctors recommend it. >> i think every patient with back pain should be wearing this belt because it not only gives you some core strength and support in your spine, but it also gives you a traction effect which decompresses the discs that we have in our lower back. and this effect is definitely going to give great pain relief for a patient. >> i see this as an adjunct or as a device that assists in reducing the muscle spasm, and i think it's one of the several things that we can do to help our back pain patients. >> the great thing about this belt is that patients with chronic back pain can wear this belt and feel that they can get their life back again. >> you know, dr. ho, i have a weak back.
5:22 am
but with your belt on, my back is feeling much stronger. why is that? >> well, john, your back is stronger for two reasons. it's less painful. with less pain, the muscles can relax and become stronger. and it's more stable because my belt will hold your midsection together so your core is stronger. now, having a strong core and a stable back is important for your work. recently, a team of paramedics tested my belt, and here's what they discovered. >> having the belt just made me feel so much more confident about being able to lift without having pain. >> i find it forces you to stay in the right position. i have a tendency to do a little bit of a hunch as i kind of go to reach over. and this doesn't allow me to do that. it's kind of stretching it out and taking the stress off the lower back, so i can see how it would prevent injuries, as well. >> now, what about athletes with back pain? should they use your belt? >> absolutely, john. you know, many golfers, hockey players, bowlers, and football players love my belt because it keeps them in the game. henoc and cauchy are football players.
5:23 am
they use my belt for their back pain from working out. first, they lift the weights without the belt, then they try again with the belt on. they were totally amazed. with the belt on, they lifted a lot more weight without their usual back pain. >> it feels awesome. i feel great. like, i mean, the first time, i could only do two, and then the second time, i doubled it, and it feels good. you don't feel the pain. it's just loose. >> it's almost like using a regular weight-room belt but a little better, 'cause, like, it feels really good in the supports here. it feels like it stretches you. it stretches you and it strengthens you at the same time. >> you know, to be healthy, you need to be active. and to be active, you need a good, strong back. my decompression belt is designed to help relieve your back pain so you can enjoy activities you decide. use it while driving, walking, golfing, bowling, and any other activities that you like. >> when i'm bowling without the belt, my back, as soon as i bend down, the base of my back hurts.
5:24 am
but when i put the belt on, it makes you stay straight up and down so you have more control. and your back doesn't hurt, so you can actually bowl better. >> it's definitely given me more support. consequently, i'm hitting the ball better. >> i've been hitting balls for almost an hour, and i feel no pain. >> the de-stress belt will help me get out and play more hockey. >> it's very easy to use. you just velcro it on, pump it up, and you start feeling better right away. now, i'm very impressed how much support i'm getting from the belt. it's comfortable, it doesn't restrict me from doing pretty much anything, and it's not bulky. i can even wear it under my shirt. i'm also surprised by how well it can lift and decompress my back. >> you know, my belt is powerful enough for football players, yet gentle enough for seniors. my hophysio belt works by unloading, stretching, and decompressing your back to relieve pain. look on the scale here. go ahead and pump it up, john. when you pump up the belt, it'll lift the weight of your upper body off your lower back.
5:25 am
see on the scale? the weight went from 20, now to 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. it keeps decreasing the weight on your back. less weight, less pressure means less back pain. >> that makes sense. by reducing the pressure and giving you the support you need, you're gonna feel better. now, how about people that sit and stand all day? they must love this belt. >> you know, this belt works to help relieve the stiffness and the pain in your back all day long. >> it's great. it's fabulous. i can continue doing my daily work with no issues at all and go home happy and probably even go for a jog. >> my back feels very supported. i have no lower back pain at all right now. i have no compression issues. i usually have compression issues in my lower back when i'm trying to cook or twist or turn. right now, it feels very supported. i have no pain at all. >> it's like a miracle happened. >> my friends, time is running out. you're wasting your life if you

three couples used the kreg d.i.y. project kit to build the home-improvement projects of their dreams. see how they transformed an underutilized closet into this custom closet organizer... an empty four-season room into this welcoming, clutter-free entry-way organizer... and a messy garage into this modular garage storage system. they finished in just one weekend, using a few ordinary tools, kreg's step-by-step project plans, and the three amazing tools in the kreg d.i.y. project kit. and you'll meet two sisters whose shanty-to-chic blog site shows you how to build home-improvement projects using kreg tools. >> i wouldn't have been able to build the furniture i've built without these kreg tools. i couldn't have done it. >> i'd prefer to do the project myself, because it's a better product in the end. it's more durable, it's reliable, and then there's that pride in ownership and knowing that i accomplished something. >> kito and nadilia have a big toy-dump area in their living room, and they'd like to take back the space to entertain. >> i don't have any toys here
5:34 am
because i have them all downstairs. i like to have them up here, but there's no place to put them. >> so, today, we're at the home of kito and nadilia. i've got the kreg d.i.y. project kit plans that are gonna make their closet dreams a reality. hey, guys. how are you? >> hi! >> good. how are you doing? >> great to see you again. >> yeah, good to see you. >> are you ready to work? >> oh, yeah. >> absolutely. >> all right, well, i've got the project kit plans for you. i know we want to organize valerie's closet. this is gonna make it so easy. this is the way we're gonna do it. >> i love that it's color-coded. >> it's very simple to use, very easy to follow. >> let's cut some wood. >> all right. just lock the rip-cut in at the size you need. no measuring, no marking. just straight, accurate cuts every time. no pencil, no measuring tape. there it is. i love your enthusiasm. >> it's great! it's so easy! >> so, you guys have been using the kreg rip-cut for a few -- >> wait. this is the first time i've used it. >> okay. >> that's her first cut ever. >> ever. >> wow. >> it's fast. and it builds your confidence. i ]want to do more.
5:35 am
>> okay. well, let's do more. that's what we're here for. let's keep going. using the rip-cut, kito and nadilia were able to make repeatable, accurate cuts without having to measure. >> using the rip-cut, i've saved a lot of time, a lot more efficiency. >> what i like about the rip-cut is -- it's easy to use. it really is. it was very easy to make the same repeatable cuts many times in a row. >> guys, it's pocket-hole time. >> all right. so, let's use the r3 pocket hole jig to make this happen. pocket holes enable you to join two pieces of wood together. just drill a pocket hole in one of the pieces. the jig positions it perfectly every time. and then drive in a kreg self-tapping screw. it pulls the pieces together to create a strong joint. >> clamp it down. >> yep. >> look at their teamwork. >> there we go. >> you want to get the drill up to speed before you plunge to make the pocket hole. >> okay. >> and the bit stops automatically, so you can't make a mistake. >> that is awesome! >> let's take a look. let's see it. >> oh, it's beautiful!
5:36 am
>> it really is. >> that's right. >> high five. >> your wife is awesome. you're gonna get super-strong joints every time. the pocket hole accepts a screw for an incredibly strong joint. plus, it can usually be hidden. >> the joint you get with the r3 kreg jig is -- it is certainly strong. >> holds the boards tighter, stronger. they don't move. it's more accurate. >> great job on the pocket holes, guys. >> thank you. >> you got a lot of them drilled. it's time to use the third piece of our d.i.y. project kit. this is the shelf pin jig. this is going to give you level, even shelves every time. can't do it wrong. you see the way the fence works against the side of the wood? we clamp that down. >> and we're ready to go. >> yeah, we're ready to go. >> let's go. >> steel-reinforced holes, a great, strong drill bit. this is why you get accurate results every time. no more mismatched holes caused by measuring and drilling each hole individually. let's take a look. look at that. accurate, clean repeatable
5:37 am
results. >> awesome. >> all my shelves that i've put in so far are level, and i know that the rest of them that i build using this tool will be perfectly level. >> the shelf pin jig lays out exactly how to -- or where to drill the pinholes for adjustable shelves in a cabinet. and it was the easiest thing i have ever used. >> all right, kito, we've got all the pieces here for the large box, so let's start. >> let's go. >> the included square-drive bit drives the screws without slipping. so, what do you love best about using these kreg screws? >> they're self-tapping, which means that they bore for themselves. you don't have to pre-drill. >> yeah. all right, let's flip it over and get a shelf in. work them in there, turn them in there. >> it's very easy. >> how they fitting? oh, wow. they fit great. >> take a look at this. nice. >> is that level? >> i'm pretty sure it is. >> is that not wobbly? >> i'm pretty sure -- >> look at that. that is success. you've built the tower, the hamper, and the large box. you've got adjustable shelves on
5:38 am
these. >> we built this! and i got hands-on experience with all the tools. >> all right, so, what is the next step? we're gonna install this and we've got to surprise valerie, right? hi, valerie. >> hi. >> how are you? >> good. >> what is different about this space? >> there is no toys. >> where are they? >> should we go and look for them? >> yeah. >> let's see. >> where are they? >> where are your toys? >> ooh! >> what do you think? >> [ laughs ] >> that is cool. >> what is that? >> a whole giant, new closet. >> do you like it? >> yeah. this is super-nice, mom ad dad. >> give them a hug. so cute. >> [ laughs ] >> oh! so, kito and nadilia were able to build the perfect closet for valerie, thanks to the kreg d.i.y. project kit. now they've reclaimed their living-room space, and she's got

with over 20,000 subscribers and almost 2 million visitors a month, these busy stay-at-home moms have become the queens of decorating on a budget and discovered kreg tools along the way. hello, ladies. how are you? >> hi. how are you? >> we're good. how are you? >> good. doing well. i've been looking at your website and following you guys. incredible stuff you're doing. let's talk about your projects. >> well, i think both of us are on a mission to decorate our homes for very little money. we have lots of rooms to fill. and so that's really what started the whole thing. >> what did you guys discover when you started using kreg tools that allowed you to do it right and even better? >> well, we just started building about four years ago, and i would say we were very novice at the time. we had no idea what a kreg jig was. but we realized, after using it the first few times, that it was making our builds so much stronger, and it was easier than having to hold everything and pre-drill at the same time. >> can i show you a little bit of what we've done? >> yeah, absolutely. >> come join me. >> wow. oh, we're on the roll here.
5:44 am
>> this is a good example of -- >> wow! whitney, you built that? >> yeah. and let me actually -- if i step around here to you guys... >> yep. >> ...this is one of my favorite pieces. >> oh, wow! >> but it's a big sideboard, and really, the whole, entire thing was constructed using my kreg tools. >> do you have adjustable shelves in there, shelf-pin jig? >> i do. i used their shelf-pin jig. >> yeah. >> it's actually the first time i used it. and i was very nervous to use it, but it was very simple. and it makes it a very professional piece, too, so... >> i'm impressed. after doing it, would you call it difficult or would you call it simple and easy? >> i would say -- we both would say -- that it's -- we always say if we can do it, anybody can do it. >> yeah. >> and we truly feel that way. >> how'd you discover kreg? >> i read, one time, someone say something like, "i would never build again without it," and so, yeah, that's when we decided to give it a try. and i will say mine sat in the box forever 'cause i was so nervous to use it, and then once we both used it, we said the exact same thing -- "we will
5:45 am
never build without it again." and, like we say, if we can do it, anybody can do it. it's very simple and it's also a lot of fun. >> it looks like what you're building is amazing. thank you guys so much. it was great to have you. >> both: thank you. >> i think the d.i.y. project kit really eliminates some of the headaches that new d.i.y.ers might come across. >>: you can build a quality project and not have the skills of a furniture builder. >> it takes all of the complicated, maybe scary parts of working on a project and simplifies them. >> mike and mandy moved into their new home just a few years ago. they need to get organized. >> this is the reason why we need an organizer. it's crazy how messy this is. >> mike, mandy, how you guys doing? >> good. >> great. so excited to get started with you. would you call yourselves beginners? intermediates? >> oh, before that. >> before beginners. >> yes. >> before beginners. >> okay, well, we're gonna start. we're going to begin at the beginning, and that's going to be with the rip-cut. >> okay. >> we're gonna follow the plan. although mike had no experience building, with the kreg rip-cut and his circular saw, he easily
5:46 am
and quickly made over 45 straight cuts without measuring, marking, or any wasted wood. you guys did really well with the rip-cut. was it fun? >> both: yeah. >> then mike drilled pocket holes for rock-solid joints, just like the pros, and without any glue. next, he drilled evenly spaced shelf-pin holes for level, adjustable shelves that don't wobble, a challenge even for a pro, made easy with the kreg shelf-pin jig. nice hardened steel bit. see that? incredible. >> cool. >> by staining before assembly mike was assured of a much neater and more professional finish for his organizer. >> that looks great. >> looking good. we're graduating beyond beginner. no, you're doing good. mike then assembled his room organizer, inserting the kreg self-tapping screws in the pocket holes, making strong, secure joints. only a few more steps. we're almost there. hello, hello! >> hi! >> oh, my goodness. look at this piece.
5:47 am
>> isn't it great? >> you built this. >> yes, i did. >> you were not even -- you were like a before beginner and you built this. >> i did. >> i think it's totally transformed the space. >> absolutely. >> improved it a hundredfold. >> yep. >> right. >> and now it's creating that actual entryway feel that you want from this all-season room right? >> very much so. >> i never expected to be able to say i built something. >> i've got one surprise for you. i asked a couple of your friends to come over to check out your handiwork.
