About This Group

One of the things that I have learned about ChocolateLife members over the past five years is that they are very resourceful. There's a lot of DIY knowledge out there, and this group has been created as a place to share it.

The idea is to share work you have already done OR to start a discussion about how to approach a DIY project. Rather than have one long discussion on DIY winnowers, for example, the approach would be to create a different discussion for each new/different DIY winnower project.

Rather than uploading complete sets of step-by-step photos here, the best thing is to upload photos in the photo section, create an album, and then link to the album from here. You can order the photos to create step-by-step instructions, putting the text for each step into the description and comments.

You can embed videos in the discussion or post them in the videos section, whichever seems to make the most sense.
