What is

Some of you know that I keep another web site called but some of you do not, so I thought I'd fill you in on what it is all about. started as a way for me to highlight re-purposing ideas from not only myself, but other talented folks in the online junking community. I have pages divided up by categories like, windows, shutters, spindles, doors etc. Each page highlights projects made with those items. Every few weeks I highlight a project and a quick project. These always appear on the main robojunker page. After a few weeks I move them to the archive pages and then later to the subject pages. Nothing disappears, it is always there for you to reference back to.

Above is a submitted past quick project

I like to think of it as an online junking magazine. Sometimes I'll write about an artist with really cool re-purposed art. Or maybe I'll announce a news item on there etc. But it's mostly about projects.

Above is a submitted project, currently highlight on the main page

The one thing this format did not offer me was feedback from my readers, and that is when I started the blog. The blog has more daily readers than the web page and I do update it more often. The focus of the web site is ideas and projects. The blog has a wider range of subjects.

So if you are ever in want of junking ideas pop over to and enjoy browsing.

PS: This is NOT my big news. I've yet to get clearance to share, but will as soon as I can.

Once I googled trash to treasure and you came up. I've enjoyed RoboJunker for a couple of years and your blog was the first blog I ever read... and then I started reading many of the blogs you listed and I was hooked! So, I thank you for sharing! I enjoyed reading your testimony, too! Whatever blessings God brings your way I know you will do well. Lezlee
