Evaporative coolers can make summer parties more comfortable. Whimsical designs for humidifiers fit perfectly in children's rooms. Watch television on your laptop or PC with a wireless router. Take satellite radio with you anywhere with a new handheld receiver. A collapsible cart takes the heavy lifting out of moving a table saw.

Dean and Derek revamp the front step of a 1950s Cape home in Cohasset, Mass. To restore the front entrance, they remove the old slate platform (which is cracking, shifting and weather-worn). In its place, they build up the new platform and set bluestone with cobble risers. Dean and Derek explain the proper way to demo the existing step, how to design a field pattern and how to set bluestone for treads and field. The two also take viewers to the quarry for a lesson on how to pick bluestone and cobbles, based on color, size and function.
"Assembly Required" on DIY
Episode: "Log Home"
• July 17, 2:00 p.m. ET/PT
Old world craftsmanship meets today's technology as the log home goes prefab. Meet a family who got more hands-on experience than they were hoping for as they set out to build their log home and see how one family saw prefab as an affordable way to build their lakeside retreat. Tour a log home factory to see how computerized machines cut every log to fit and watch and learn as a kit comes together on a build site.
