From Outhouse To Indoor Plumbing- The Bathroom Remodel Part 2

Painting was first. Ceiling and walls. The wall paint was something I had never used. Sand mixed with the paint. It turned out better than I pictured it in my mind when I started. Mimi even got some glitter stuff to mix in with it. I know I rolled my eyes, too. But as always, her tastes are spot on. Everyone who has seen the paint raves over how nice it looks.Once I was done painting, the floor was next. Several years ago, I put down a sheet vinyl floor. This time she opted for vinyl 12” x 12”…See More

From Outhouse To Indoor Plumbing- The Bathroom Remodel Part 1

Finally! The bathroom is finished! (Almost)As I mentioned before, we had Bathfitters redo the tub and walls of the bathroom. Our house was built in 1953. In those days, one bathroom was common and, with just the two of us, there really wasn’t much need for a second bath. I suppose pink and black were all the rage back then but the colors were a little bright.…See More

Wednesday's Wisdom For Woodturners June 25 2014

A lot of wood working this week but nothing on the lathe. As I mentioned before, the ongoing bathroom project has taken priority.The "Old Jail Pens" project is moving forward. The check arrived so we will be ordering at least 100 pen kits this week and I still need to make another pen presentation box.I found a couple of woodturning blogs, in a link, from one of my Twitter contacts. These are short reads but have some useful information.This one has some stuff about bowl turning-…See More

The Saga Of Lilly And Olivia's Bunk Beds Part 8

Posted on May 12, 2014 at 5:43pm 2 Comments

Well, the bed is at home in the little neighbor girls' bedroom!

The move and assembly was not without a few glitches, but they were thwarted and we were victorious. The biggest problem came when I realized the floor was carpeted. It sure felt nice on the feet but made the alignment of some of the pieces a real pain.

The Dad helped get everything moved and was invaluable in setting up the pieces. …

A Pepper Grinder

Mimi told me that she had given away the last pepper grinder. So, it is off to the basement to create some more. This is my over-engineered process. Hopefully you won’t find it too long winded.
