Last big project I made was Adirondack chairs...cut the trees, milled the lumber, and built them start to finish from scratch.

Today should bring the sanding of the stock, and perhaps the first coat of stain. The small metal parts still need some cleaning up. Barrel is ready to go.

Utility with overloads to take a java.util.List of pojos with annotations and convert them to CSV files

Also got real lazy and wrote a sql script that will look at a table and generate the annotated properties to create a pojo suitable for JSON, CSV or JPA use.  Simply call a view and filter it on db name and table name...

Already did a utility to automate file transfers in/out so my next 3 months of work will be "run a query, copy/paste an entity, copy/paste 4 lines of code and change a couple of strings in it, and send to code review"

Might get lazy enough to automate/template that copy/paste part as well....

Awesome.  I read about a WW II British Territorial Battalion that was untrained and sent to France as a labour battalion.  They received only one Bren which they were very proud of.  When the evacuated at Dunkirk, they disregarded the order to abandon their weapons and proudly carried the Bren back to England.

I recently refinished our kitchen cabinets. We had builder grade maple cabinets and the wife wanted white shaker (GD’s favorite..) that went to the ceiling. Removed all the doors, built boxes for the top to match existing cabinets and extended face frames. Custom moulding to conceal to ceiling. Made the custom doors from poplar and mdf panels.

The carpentry was the “easy” part, that’s something I’ve been doing a long time. The adventure was dipping my toes into spray finishing. In typical GD fashion, I over spent on a nice turbine hvlp sprayer (Fuji). Originally wanted to spray lacquer but didn’t want to deal with ventilation, so opted for BM Advance in satin. Worked out well, good enough that I’m the only one that notices the mistakes so far.

Wife is happy, looks a lot nicer and we spent about 1/4 the cost of buying all new custom cabinets….plus I got to keep the fancy new sprayer.

Haven't done anything too exciting as far as building things in a while.  

I did buy a beat up old oscilloscope that needed some TLC.  

While I wait for the new power switch to come on the slow boat I decided to fix the old one with a yellow sealing heat shrink eyelet. the switch uses an  external return spring that is captured by the button boss,  the previous owner broke that off.  I first bent the eyelet over and then cut the ring off so I would have a surface to push on,  Then I cut the shrink tube off of the crimp side and cut the shrink to the appropriate length.  Once all that was done I dropped the spring in place and installed the heat shrink over the switch and added the crimp while heating it all up with a hot air rework gun.  The heat shrink has hot glue sealant in it so once cool it is nice and solid,  and it will contain the spring.  









Did some calibration checks on it to make sure it is going to be reliable with measurements. And then followed that up with some goofing off with it.
Its alive!



That's about as exciting a thing as I have done in a while.  Short of building shit at work... But that's work.
