Hi, I'm Paul Spooner. If you don't know me, perhaps you're just looking for a generic handyman in Post Falls.

I'm on a one year Sabbatical until 2023-10-18‬


For small projects, I just get it done. This chair, for example, was missing a few wooden pieces, so I made some new ones and glued it all back together.

For larger projects, I like to plan it out in advance as a 3D model. Here's the plans for converting our front lawn into a raised bed garden.

And the finished project.

Along with the normal flooring, appliance, and faucet installations, I've done a number of interesting projects:

A crazy custom bookshelf
that I made for our house.

A backyard workshop
well suited for the Southern California climate.

Windows in my garage door
that I made so I could put some hard points in for lifting heavy things.

A custom pyx
I designed and assembled.

A hardscape project
at my childhood home.

An unusually deep sandbox
to assuage my projected childhood insecurities.

A place to hang pots in my kitchen
that I suspect only an engineer would have similarly over-complicated.

A tree fort
that I built at our old house.

A ferrocement bridge
I made for my parents' new back yard.

The ferrocement mushroom
I made for my mother-in-law.

The ferrocement flower
I made with some help from my family. My first Ferro project, but certainly not the last!

The sledgehammer Technobane
, with pictures and documentation.

An ornamented drilling hammer

I'm currently on sabbatical, but if you try hard enough you'll be able to reach me.
