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.

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.

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.

I am remodeling my shop in the basement.    The work bench and reloading bench are in place.  Now I need  to build the shelving for my shop.  The shelve  will be between 9 and 10 ft long.
How much distance between the shelves should I keep for ammo cans?  The shelve will have at least four shelves but could go as high as 6 shelves depending on spacing.
The bottom 2 shelves will be for ammo cans.  Misc. stuff on the shelves above that.

Resealed hydroboost unit on the Suburban yesterday.  Damn, im getting too old for anything that involves working under the dash. Next stop, reseal job on the steering box. So glad i learned to do this crap as a kid.  I have better things to do with my money than a) pay someone to do it, or, b) pay for reman units that may or may not be properly reman'd.

I have wanted to buy a welding positioner for a while, but can’t justify the cost for how infrequently I’d use it.  A guy I follow on YouTube has a manual version and I copied much of his.

I had some stainless drops from some circles I had water jet cut.

I welded a shaft on one and a tubing receiver to the other.  I also welded a rounded shaft to the bottom that fits inside the grounding plate.

I drilled a hole for the shaft in my table.

I turned some grooves every half inch on the face so it is easier to center work.

It is weird using the pedal and moving the turntable with the other foot.  I’m probably buying a positioner anyway.

I have some pipe stands that work great for holding round tube, but not so good for square material.  They sell different heads, but I could just use some 4 inch channel to make a flat surface.  I was out of 4 inch channel.

I did have a bunch of 1/4” cold rolled flat bar.

Continuing my multi-year shutter project.

I’ve made 49 so far.

This is a set of 4 for my dining room, identical to 4 for a computer room. The slats are 3-1/2” wide. They shutters are 67” long.

I’ve been working on this set of 8 since November last year, finished them last month.

Finally getting started on installing them.

After hanging the lateral shutters I adjust the hinges to get the shutters parallel and flush, then I have to make hanging stiles for the inner 2, leaving enough room for the gaps.

It’s such an enormous amount of work, I’m not sure I’d do them again knowing what I know now.

It’s like eating an elephant.

Fiddling around all day to install the inner 2 shutters.

The one on the right was twisted so much the lower corner was 1/2” off.

This is way too much to make adjustments for.

1/16” you can get away with.

I twisted the shutter in the opposite way till I heard a “POP”, which was one joint cracking loose. I glued a shim in the joint and the twist went away.

This weekend I got it in my head to restain the deck, or at least get that ball moving since it took way longer than I'd hoped.

But it turns out I should have pressure washed this deck when I bought the place

Everything is galvanized and HEAVY DUTY. This outta last a few decades.

Finished my yard project for the summer.  We bought our house in 2018 with no yard, just a big dirt and weed pile.  Got everything finished except for this little corner area, which was still mostly a weed farm.

Started working on it in late spring, after pulling the weeds this is what we had...



Had to move a sprinker line, set the 6 x 6 posts, and then place about 2.5 tons of flagstone.  Filled it with polymeric sand and then finished up the pergola.  My neighbors helped me move the 36" cowboy cauldron into place yesterday (weighs almost 200lbs).



Still have to stain the wood before winter.  I was planning on planting some trees and doing a bit more to the pergola, but we are selling our house and moving in December so that's as far as I am taking it.

I have 4 nice, cedar adirondack chairs in the garage that were meant for this space, but I haven't even unboxed them since we will be gone soon.

There are things I would do differently but overall it came out ok.  Going to have the inaugural fire in it this weekend and maybe grill some tomahawk steaks just because.

We’re at about 18 “layers” of which 6 are young and haven’t started laying, and only 5 of the remaining 12 continue to lay. Some will get butchered with the meaties.

Then we have another 16 meat birds (already did 25 earlier this summer) and 3 turkeys for harvest later this month.

For this most recent project I built a burn barrel which, much like those popular backyard fire pits, provides secondary combustion to whatever your burning. It actually works, and burns significantly hotter, faster, and cleaner than the old “punch holes in a barrel and light a fire” method.



I legitimately wish we had a YouTube forum (or other outlet for YT vid discussion) here as I genuinely look for feedback on this stuff. Filming with a phone, sound, editing etc. *without people getting the impression that I’m just mining for clicks.

ETA pics of the project:

New door day! Woot!

This is a lower entry door in an unconditioned space (almost like a garage that’s not a garage).

Only had a storm door up until now. Had to cut 6” off the bottom of a steel door to make it fit the size of the short room.
