  1. Rust Hunt on a Saturday....rain threatening ....Antique Mall 3 blocks from the house, and the Boss has sent me out to run a few errands...including buying a new roll of Blue "City" trash bags.....and..of course I hit that Mall...first. Backyard is shaping up... Metal framework is gone, most of the trash and old tarps or bagged up. That be the Neighborhood Yard Nazi's Garage, back there....her attempt to mow the yard got..rained out....too bad. I have to learn to NOT go up to the second floor of the Mall....but...I did spend about...$19 and change...on just
  2. Got 1/2 of the bags of gravel spread around into the shed...then the back yelled.."ENOUGH, ALREADY!" bags seemed to have almost as much watery mud as stones....Could add a bag of Portland and make it a Rat Slab floor.... 2nd shot was yesterday....I feel like a truck had hit me, today. Moving 11 bags of stones did NOT help out, either. Have a "mock-up" under my computer monitor...to raise it 3"....need to get a stick of Ash, or Oak...and build the box...
  3. Doors are now adjusted to be gap-free. . I had other plans for that 2x 6.... WorkMate got a new top...needed a trim, though.. My Cordless saw...Disston D-112... Looks a bit better The old top? Was burning trash today, anyway...figured it fit that description.... 77 degrees outside, today....cleared of the Patio, as well.. Trash, old tarps, and the broken metal parts of the Gazebo...Scrap metal, meet my Little Friend Didn't even have to change the blade....ot too bad...for one day? Stay tuned
  4. Monday..Again?...Trying to get a shed done... Weather permitting..
  5. Doors are done... Arrow did not send enough parts, though.. Those 2 black parts at the edge? Door #2 only got 1, could NOT find the second one....they guide the bottom of the door in a track....not much of a BFD...as they hang from guides at the top... Had a storm come through.. Just after I got everything put away...."Punch List" scheduled for tomorrow....
  6. 2nd picture...you can see the door panels leaning against the inside of a wall....
  7. One of the items picked last weekend... Was what I thought was an 1/8" wide Sash Mortise Chisel....however... I didn't think the back on this was meant to be ..flat? More of a skinny gouge? Not sure how to either sharpen it, or use it... Any ideas?
  8. Roof is done... Which leaves just 2 doors to build... Almost 3 hours working off of this torture device... Calves are "barking" LOUDLY....toes were getting crampy....leave them doors for another day...
  9. Now have the 6 roof panels all sorted out...15mph winds right now....not going to try, today...
  10. That long handle? Looks more like a spike one can drive into the ground, or into a hole in a Telephone pole....to hold the tool steady, while you use both hands to do the crimping.. Like when they had to custom cut guy wires for the poles....either to the eye bolt in the pole, or the ground anchor....
  11. Update on the shed...not much I can do by myself...arms too short...but... Starter strips at each corner...Visegrips help hold metal parts in place.. Was a decent enough day, for once... About 2 hours of working from this torture devise....calves were crampy.. Have 6 full size panels to install, 3 per side...arms might be too short...getting windy, today....may wait a day, or two...Bolts for "stitch screws", may just get changed to screws instead....Need to find a couple 1/8" drill bits ( always seem to break them...)Waiting on the March wind to ...go away.
  12. Decided to use up a bunch of scraps, mainly strips that were ripped off to make a board the right width...cut them to about 12"...anything shorter was tossed into the burn pile can.....Then glue things up into a panel....clean it up, square it up, round the corners and edges....a couple of coats of mineral oilas a finish. Scrap pile is smaller, and have a cutting board for the Kitchen...5/8" x 10-1/4" x 11". No real pattern, just what seemed to look best....Thanks for looking in...
  13. Have a shed to finish putting together....been too windy for doing any roofing.....sheet metal and high winds don't play nice together.....May try later today to start it.. 8' x 10'......those 2 x 2s are called Strongbacks.....keeps the gable from being blown over. have about a month to go, until that Watchman surgery on May 7.....
