Intriguing and Sometimes Inadvisable DIY Solutions

Human ingenuity is an amazing thing, especially when you're looking for DIY solutions on a budget. That said, welding together your very own chop saw is probably a bad idea if you don't know exactly what you're doing. Also, there are probably safer ways to haul a boat than tying it to your car. That's not to say these methods don't work. It's just often a better idea to choose the DIY solution that leaves you with fewer tickets and more remaining fingers.

It's kind of weird how a small piece of foam, extra long cord, or little metal clip can make a daily struggle disappear completely. Sure, it makes us feel stupid to realize that we could have solved a problem years ago for three dollars, but where's the fun in that? On the other side of things, here are extremely reckless uses of money people don't regret at all.
