    Spent some time checking under the stage for leaks as the baptism filled – it’s dripping again but only about three drops a minute, and it’s onto concrete, so it’s mostly absorbing and evaporating – the puddle is only a few inches in diameter and not growing, so I’ll wait till the next time it will be needed and tear the plumbing apart and reseal it then. It’s been such a hassle :/

    I also finally got some paneling glued up for a project I’m working on and set up to start routing grooves to make a wainscoting look out of it. Should look really nice when it’s all done.

    Came out really nice Jon. Nice work.

    I did have a fix for that tho.

    Nice fix for the sliding tools Dirty. Gotta remember that if I ever run into that problem.

    Looks very nice!!!

    I was back at the last of the Dutch gable end vents today.

    Look cool all pre primed I guess.

    When I did alot of roof and siding on Dutch colonials the eaves were butted up to the house and the outer fascia was notched onto/supported with knee brackets. Sure as shit someone through the years removed the brackets and the eaves slumped bad. The only real strong solution short of complete rebuild was to tie the eave back into the house with some sheathing and extend the lower fascia. Of course the problem would be if we didnt do one of the two roof or siding. If just the roof we used bead board to match and made sure we used 1″ roof nails so we didnt punch through.

    Looking good, Dirty. What’s the pitch on that roof?

    That roof is only a 6/12 but the tools were still sliding. I did have a fix for that tho.

    Man that’s almost like cheating. lol
    Nice work on the gable end.

    It looks way to cold to do window work John. I’d want to stay close to the wood stove on a day like that.

    That makes such a difference! I had to paint the trim and siding on a couple gable ends on a really steep roof a couple summers ago without a harness so I was just holding onto a rope with one hand, balancing the paint and brush in the other, and trying not to destroy all the shingles at the same time…I would have loved to have a platform like that!

    Nice work on the gable end.

    When you have the equipment and horsepower, tasks can get much easier.

    we had a house in a neighborhood without big trees when my kids were young and my daughter wanted a Pinata for her birthday. We did not even have a basketball hoop to hang it from. but I did have my tele-handler sitting down the street on a job site so when it was time to do the Pinata, i got the forklift, tied it onto the forks, extended the boom and lifted it up for the kids, they thought it was great, My wife not so much. however she still tells the story when trying to say how I over killed the hanging of the Pinata, a 6000 lb forklift for a 4 pound pinata.

    Threw together a quick router sled and working on what will become the underside of the top. The 1 1/2″ bit works a treat. I just need to get this side flat enough so I can do the top side with the planer. I still have over 4 1/4″ of thickness, so lots to play with yet.

    That was pretty quick work, Jim. The router sled arrangement really does the job but, man, does it ever leave a mess behind, eh? Sure hope you don’t get any twist.

    BE the change you want to see.

    I need to get a bigger bit for flattening slabs like that. It looks like it’s going really well!

    How wide is you slab?

    Wow, what a great job you did Jim,
    4 1/4 inch of thicknesses is a great thick table.

    It’s still not down to final dimensions. Not even close. I am just trying to get it flat enough to get the ugly out and so it can be ready for other processes. If I get 3″ out of it I will be happy, but I am sure I will get more than that. There were a couple of nails in it that the router found.

    Bet that got your attention in a hurry. Have run into a number of bullets embedded in stock, but that is usually softer than a nail so it doesn’t cause quite as much of a ruckus.

    My electrician good friend was in my neck of the woods earlier today and surprised me with offering to come over and insttall the 5000 watt ceiling mounted heater I snagged at HD for $100 last month.

    I really didn’t feel like working on this today but I went ahead anyways. Now I’ve got heat in my shed for when I need it should I find time to work on more stuff inside the shed. Still lots of electrical and organizing to do in the storage loft/attic.

    You didn’t fool around getting that router sled built.

    That is too bad you hit some nails in the slab.
