    Can’t be worse then sanding drywall, can it?

    It can and is worse…. sanding mud doesn’t even make my list. Carrying bags of pre-mix concrete and hand mixing is right up there with shoveling snow on my list.
    On another note, I don’t know if using salt on your new pads is a good idea. Being they are “fresh” you could risk spalling…. and salt will burn your dogs paws.

    Well I already had to carry those premixed bags of concrete up to the top and mix them. But I do have a mixer, which makes that part a piece of cake.

    I don’t plan to use salt anywhere. But I’m new to all this.

    You need a pulley system for that hill @redwood as far as the salt situation, I know around here, these guys that install the pavers or the concrete squares always tell the customers don’t throw regular ice salt on them, but use a calcium chloride based salt. Just don’t let Tanner lick at it though.

    well I guess I should pretty much finish this thread. I added cheap low voltage path lights. I still have to bury the line, but it was pretty darn cold out today. I don’t see how you folks work in freezing weather.

    Heck that looks great RW. I love the hand rail. In the Diamond Head hillside there are a lot of cotton bushes and we get that cotton all over the ground there like you have going.

    What! No Bosch jacket on your coathook! Shame Mark.

    Nice lookin’ job Mark. Are you happy with it? That’s all that counts!

    Thanks for sharing your project. What’s up next on your to-do list?

    A neighbor is trying to commission me to build a Lego table. You know, for about $25. I’ll probably do it.

    What they don’t have Lego building blocks in Canada? That’s a shame.

    I was just surprised it was what it was. Thought it some kind of nomenclature for something else.

    I guess that’s the niceties you get in retirement Mark. The build requests get notched down somewhat. Nothing wrong with that. In fact, it’s a plus. Would you not agree?

    All in all the project came out pretty good Mark.

    Great job on the walkway.
    You need to move north of the border. LOL No freezing temps OR snow here, YET. 😉

    this i gotta see, do you make the whole table including the legs with lego? that would take quite a few legos to complete.

    Well, I can see how you could get that impression. No, it will be a wooden table in which to build Lego projects on. Probably some storage underneath for the Legos.

    @redwood Bet you’re glad you’re finished, and feeling proud. Looks great, and the lights add a nice touch.

    Nice job Mark ! I also thought you was building the table out of Legos.
    My grandson is into them big time.

    Glad I’m finished, yes. Proud, not as much. I know I could have done better. But they do accomplish what I set out to do. It’s a much better walkway then what was there originally. The lights do light it up just fine at night
