Tuesday Toolsday Giveaway: Throne Week

Last week, we asked you to identify two tools and what they are used for.  They are a roller and a veneer saw, both used for adhering veneer to wood.  We randomly picked one winner from all the comments, and that winner is Ida from Landing, NJ.  Congrats Ida, you won a Dremel rotary tool kit.

In case you didn’t know, this past Monday was National Plumbers’ Day.  That event combined with the royal wedding made us DIYers think about the throne in everyone’s home: the toilet (or as the British call it, the loo).  So we’ve declared this to be Throne Week. We’ve got all sorts of ideas, inspiration and instructions on how you can give your throne the royal treatment.

For next week’s giveaway, take a look at this swanky new toilet – it costs over $6,300.  It was just introduced by a popular toilet manufacturer and it comes with some fancy new features. Add a comment to this post and tell us what features you think should come with that steep price tag.  (Keep your answers clean.) 

We will randomly pick one comment from this post to win another fancy new tool called the Grass Stitcher. The Stitcher lets you inexpensively repair bare spots in your lawn (in case your pets have been using your yard as their throne). It works through the dead grass leaving organic material in its place – perfect for getting your spring lawn plush and green. 

On Tuesday, May 3, we will select the winner then start up a new giveaway for another tool, which will be given away the Tuesday after that.

You have until May 3, 2011, 2:00pm (ET) to enter to win the Grass Stitcher tool.  

Official Rules.

  7. Curtis Cunningham says:

    Seat automaticly goes to the 'Up' position after every use… (You know how thoughtless and disrespectful those dad blamed women are about leaving it in the down position!)

  8. Curtis Cunningham says:

    It analyizes the stool and urine for blood, bad bacteria, toxins & other bad bugs & chemicals, and gives you feedback on your diet, current state of health, from the excrement…
