    I searched but I don’t think we had a thread like this one. I find I’m always doing little stuff that doesn’t merit a thread of its own, but might be interesting to share.

    Today I had a few hours in the shop and decided that I need to start slowly but surely picking away at my L-BOXX tower of doom. I need to build up some sysport / L-Ports for the walls, I want my floor and bench back.

    Chaos:

    First Box all done with dominos, glue and clamps. I switched down to 5mm for 3/4″ ply, it seems strong enough and things went really quick without changing depths (or more like forgetting to change depths and wrecking pieces).

    Also got a last coat of paint on a quick and dirty toy box for the kiddo:

    And one last one from last week, after dropping my Seneca parallel guides on the floor I decided to finally give them a quick and dirty home so I don’t knock them off the bench again.

    Well good luck with that. I’m not seeing a whole lot of wall space to mount you l-box cabinets.

    worked of a lawnmower to get it started. Runs on starting fluid but on fuel through the carb. Replaced the fuel line and new Air filter and spark plug.
    Next is to tear down the carb and clean it well. I think that should do it.

    If your carb has the metered bowl nut check that first before you tear into it. It doesn’t take much to block that passage

    This is a great thread as I feel like much of what I am “getting done” is very incremental progress at best. I will work on pics when I get down there today or tomorrow.

    Great idea for a thread as well. Gives you a chance for show and tell stuff that doesn’t deserve it’s own thread.

    I got my in laws garden boxes together. Used my makita cordless saw (one battery!) in the parking lot of hd to get them home and then dominos them together. Just need to get the ground levelled out, line and filled with dirt.

    No pics, but I spotlessly(well, as clean construction site gets) cleaned the tool and woodshop areas to the current project, and made some test panels up so they can try out a few different stains on the old Chestnut wainscoting to get the look they want.

    I installed a vinyl chicken with a very large, exposed butt.

    Nice!

    I finished laying down and screwing the deck boards on the front deck of the house I am remodeling and got a start on the handrail. I also had to listen to the plumber whine about the back charge I gave him because I had to have my guy clean up the plumbers mess that I asked the plumber to clean up twice.

    Haha, that’s too funny.

    I took the day off. Started with lots of rain then dealt with some stuff around the house. Think I’m doing some rigging tomorrow and moving all the counter weights, beams and stuff.

    It was a pretty boring day for me at the float house. Finished up a little plumbing. And started covering some walls with plywood.

    Slab prep today.
    It was hot.
    We got most of it done and I am beat. At least I got to rip around in the skid steer for a bit.

    Good thread. No pics but on the 4th, I pressure washed our Bobcat and Gradall forklift after I re-graded the stone drive at our shop.

    Fail on my part on pics, but I demoed a fiberglass shower stall which was rather quick. And I “had the pleasure” of breaking down a ton of cardboard boxes from the people who are newly moved in to our fourplex.

    I waited 5 hrs on my tile guys, I waited 45 minutes for the pop a lock man to let me back in my truck. I unloaded my trailer by hand at the dump during the hottest hour of the year and when I got home my wife had me cleaning up the garage.

    I want a mulligan on this day. Typical monday after a long weekend.
