Very nice work,

Thank you. They aren't pretty, but I know how to use them pretty well.

Built some window boxes this weekend for my little fixer upper of a house. No furniture grade craftsmanship by any means. They're pretty rough but pass the test from 10 feet away. Will likely paint when the house gets painted eventually.

Just finished up the flag pole. 6 coats of marine spar varnish really brought out the beautiful color of that mahogany. Had a tough time finding a threaded nut that was 1/4-28 thread to receive the tightening bolt, but I found one at my local HW store and set it into the stem with some 5-minute epoxy and it works great. I just used some wire to tie the flag onto the screw eyes for now since he's using a nautical flag he has and those things are a PITA to put on and take off. This way it'll be easier for him. I'll be shipping it to my buddy in Michigan tomorrow and he promised to send me a pic when he has it installed on the boat and I'll post that here when I get it.

Entertainment center is finished with the LED fireplace that changes to 4 or 5 different colors. Came out pretty good and the sliding TV panel works pretty well going both ways. Homeowners are pretty happy.

Does this count... took down 3 large trees.

Now I am splitting by hand with the Fiskars X27 for the hell of it. It is a great workout and that axe is a beast.

You're doing it wrong.

This is actually just temporary staging, the first chord is going over to my dad's place... but you are right I am going to build a more substantial storage for what I keep.

Default firewood

It does need air circulation. Anything sitting on the ground will rot.

Jesus, you guys sound like my wife! Better storage is on the build list. Gonna do it out of 4x4 cedar and some leftover materials from other projects. I will provide rain cover, elevate off the ground and give it proper ventilation.

Perfect reply man. Pretty much the effect I was going for with my smart ass comment.

Now get on that wood crib!!!!

We did our kitchen over and took down a wall, put in maple floors and an island. When the island went in the kitchen light was longer centered over it and it drove her crazy. She wanted the light moved over the island but I knew I would have to cut a bunch of the ceiling out to get at the wiring. She showed me a ceiling box that might work so I took that idea and ran with it.

fan/light not centered

frame

building out





I hinged it to get to the original box in the ceiling, have to be able to get to that.

Painted to match the island

I re-did our downstairs half bath and made a shelf for over the toilet.

Nice mitered joints on the edges. Besides glue, curious how you fastened them together?
