Glenn Cook - DIYEG
Your fearless writer, showing off the digit I am likely to lightly burn or whack with a hammer over the course of preparing an entry for this very blog.

Hi, I’m Glenn, the guy behind DIYEG. Lately, I’ve become fascinated with making and doing things by hand, especially stuff that I would normally go to the store and buy or hire a professional to do. Sure, sometimes it doesn’t quite turn out the same, but there’s still an immense sense of satisfaction that comes with standing back and looking at a completed project. With a keyboard and a camera at my fingertips, DIYEG is an attempt to document these projects and the learning process that goes along with them — trial and error is all part of the process, after all.

If you’d like to get in touch with an idea for a project to take on or a tip on how make things easier, please use the Contact form to email me. You can also find me on Twitter and Instagram.

If you’re in Edmonton and you’re a fan of Arsenal FC, you should check out my other site, YEGooners.ca. And if you like the writing and photos on this blog, you should check out my other other site, GlennCook.ca. (Neither site is guaranteed to be up-to-date.)
