    I started a shower swap the other day in a house trailer. What a mess. Shower had leaked for some time. Floor rot and mold.

    Nice swap out Ron! I have been lazy with pics lately. Still in trim/cabinet mode at our new build. Getting real close now. The last couple weeks are my favorite.

    Borrowed a tile saw for some creative cutting. My artistic daughter likes to get me involved with her gift making. I have to cut a porcelain plate into pie shaped segments. I thought the tile saw would be the best for doing this. I will let you know how things turn out.

    Been there, done that in our mobile home. The previous people kept using the shower with a huge split in the floor pan. Had to replace the floor. It was fun digging the old one out from under the walls.

    I have been pretty busy lately and haven’t been on here as much as I would like….been doing 50+ hours a week for the company I work for, putting in a basement bath for my parents, and doing a couple side jobs for previous customers of mine. I took a half day off today lol – a little R&R this morning for a few hours then off to my parent’s house to get some work done.

    Busy can be a good thing, Just not this time of the year with deer season going on. Have you got one yet this season Chad?

    That’s the worst part! Haven’t got one yet…..I made it into the woodsystem last Monday (first day of Ohio’s 1 week gun season) for about 3 hours….Hoping to maybe get an hour or two in the woods today since it is the last day of the season. Luckily our bow season runs until February 5.

    Woke up yesterday with my lower back all cramped up from falling asleep on the couch overnite, so couldn’t do much yesterday. Today I’m gonna may try to lay some conduit in the trench I dug to feed my shed build. My back may have different ideas on that though. We’ll see how it goes.

    Planed and ripped some boards this morning then cut out a wine bottle and glass holder for a silent auction. Waiting for a little glue to dry to finish that. Now I think I will dig in and run a floor drain line in a shed we are building. It just needs to go to daylight. Once I finish that I will sand the boards and finish them.

    I broke a coupler on my CNC yesterday. All my plans are out the window. I guess it will be a shop organizing day.

    Edited video. I know not everyone is into guitar videos so I put together one on the work I have been doing on the shop itself. I thought I didn’t have enough footage, turns out I have enough to make another one….lol. It should be in my thread in a short time from now.

    I didn’t end up doing that at all as I would have had to clear out dirt from a stretch of trench wall that caved in and I still felt I might be playin’ with fire putting my back out.

    Frankly when I got outside, I didn’t want to do nothin. My body is really feeling beat up and my wife told me just go and do some cookin. I’ve want to make another stew, tis the season, but more wanting to make these things called Steak Bombs for which I bought the ingredients for yesterday.

    Basically, it’s a finger sized piece of steak with half a fresh jalapeno and cream cheese all wrapped in bacon and cooked for an hour or so on the BBQ or in the oven. The local pub started serving those recently and they are yummy. I can’t find that resurrected food thread, so here’s a video I found on YT of it.

    EDIT: Actually I did find it and posted it there also.

    END EDIT.

    But once I got in my shed, I did end up working all day into darkness again. I framed around my door with PVC trim and those awesome Cortex hidden fasteners. And knowing we’re about to get a blast of winter overnite, I went about installing my soffit on my shed along the side where I knew the snow would be blowing from.

    I have practically zero soffit experience, but it went pretty good. Especially using my MFT and track saw with my vac to cut the panels to size. Most of the aluminum shavings got sucked away. Gotta wear ear protection. Quite the skreechy high pitched sound cutting that stuff.

    Quite happy with what I did get done on the shed today considering how I didn’t feel like doing nothin there today.

    Good for you @doobie! Soffit looks good. Call me corrected with using the vac attached…glad it worked for you. Has to be a good feeling getting that closed up.

    I did a bunch of work on my basement cabs, mowed one last time, cleaned out the garage and fired up the snowblower, and helped get the tree setup.

    Did a pretty quick clear up in the garage, more storage shelves, and a clear of brackets for storing things, actually brought the Christmas tree down from the mezzanine in the garage,
    And put it up,
    Then just de clutter the garage,

    Good for you @doobie! Soffit looks good.

    Thanks Andrew. Always appreciate any encouragement. I gotta say, I had mucked up my roof rafters. I had to a while back bevel cut some longish pieces on the underside of the egde boards so the soffits didn’t have an arched pitch to them. I also found my rafters were not equidistant either from the top plate going out. All soffit pieces had to be measured and cut accordingly and installed in a certain order to get them in. But I did get it all right in the end result not visibly being all wonky. When you make mistakes as a newbie, which I am to all this shed building and such, the real skill is in compensating properly to hide one’s earlier dumdum ‘babe in the woods’ booboos. I feel I accomplished that despite the frustration, head scratching, and of course, additional work involved.

    Call me corrected with using the vac attached…glad it worked for you.

    I used my larger diameter hose heeding your earlier comments about the alum debris can create a clog. I’ve only done a dozen cuts or so, so maybe I will discover that I will clog still, but so far so good! I pretty well use my 35mm hose with my TS75 anyways. I was just maybe worried about it starting a fire in my vac, but as you probably read in that thread I started on the FOG on this application, that would seem not to be a concern with cuting aluminum. I just wasn’t sure about any of this.

    Thanks again @overanalyze!

    Kevin.

    So, we cut that porcelain plate for my daughters project. Weird cutting something odd shaped on the tile saw. I use a little prop of Azek to support the center of the plate as I slid it through. Cutting it with the plate upside down seemed to work really well.
