Trim trim and more trim.

My daughter was 3 when I started working on this room. She’s 8 now

Day 1 down.  I'm definitely not a professional.  The mosaic tile wasn't spaced great from the factory on the mesh backing, hopefully it looks ok when the grout goes on (edit - and there were definitely a couple of gaps I didn't do great on anyway)..

Got just a little bit done today, will keep plugging away at it over the weekend.  I'd like it completely finished next weekend.

I have an old bench top blasting cabinet that needed a stand.  I had a bunch of 3 foot drops of 2 inch square tube, so that’s what I used.

No action pics except for drying paint.

I occasionally have a need to use my horizontal band saw vertically.  It’s not designed to do that and doesn’t really have a good table.

Here is the original cover on the left and the table I made.

Making progress on the tile, this side is done except for sealing and caulking it.  Have about half of the rest of the kitchen to finish grouting.

Removed the supercharger for inspection. On and I cleaned up the Yamaha. I'm either going to rebuild the yamahas carbs... or put this 255 hp SeaDoo motor in it. Haven't decided. It's going to be a fun quarantine

Wait a minute.  You had a spare jetski hull and you didn't rivet some sheet metal to it and trying running some rapids?  What the hell?  Are you not American?

Seen a show on mtv years ago where Vanilla Ice and a bunch of his buddies did that.  Looked fun as hell.

Nowadays people are putting the running gear in little homemade aluminum boats and running rivers.  Lots of vids on the boobtoob.

Sorry no pic.

Almost died today.  Mostly from embarrassment though.

Had some leaves build up in a roof valley enough to possibly dam water, so I knew I had to clear it sooner than later.

Metal roof.

Blew the leaves off successfully carefully avoiding the moisture under the leaves, but right as I'm about done and at the bottom of the valley gust of wind blows the water/wet leaves all over the entire area above and behind me.  

I'm glad it was the back of the house so no one saw me body-sliding in retreat up and across the entire roof.

Cool an all I guess but IMO i think you just need to make your own thread
Link Posted: 2/7/2021 9:23:51 PM EST
All finished, just need to run a bead of caulk along the counter/wall and it's done-done.

Started like this...





And now we have this...

That turned out nice!

Have you thought about going with a darker receptacle and cover?

We have the same covers everywhere, they're not fancy or expensive but they have screw-less faces.

I think they come in white and almond only.  I'd be open for suggestions though.

See if there is a stainless skin that could be applied?  That would look great.  Think something like a window tint film.  You'd be changing the outlets too.

Leviton Renu comes in a bunch of colors.  I have only seen them at a local electrical supply.
