someone asked what i do in the real world, and i guess a picture is worth it all. this is an ag waste system. i design and construct total containment sytems to keep all of the poluted runoff from getting into the local surface waters. Posted by Picasa

Moving along

Well I guess its time for a little fall home improvement, winter is coming. out here in the great white north we have about two seasons........ winter and july! haha ;)

this years fall projects include fixing up the gutters and trimming a couple of trees. the dog has dug a hole next to the foundation to escape from the heat, all of 3 days at 90. I guess I better pour some concrete so he doesn't do it again.

with any luck I can get back in the shop as soon as the snow flies... all my luck it will be next week!

here they are, two coats of classic oak pollyshades and now its time to install. its ia good thing i only had to stain them, but of course i had some help or elce i would be working on them all night. Posted by Picasa

Next Project

My neighbor bought an office building down town and I volunteered to finish some oak doors he is replacing. The poor guy is working way to hard to get the office ready, he is putting up new drywall and painting, carpets, new doors and trim. So the least I could do is finish the doors and install them for him. Ill post pictures when complete.

I am finding that the verry reason i built this shop is to have a little fun time with power tools, but the summer is just crazy busy. i had to cut up an ash tree that was blown over in a friends yard, and it yealded 4 coords of wood. then another friend was going to burn down an old grainery, but i managed to save a big portion of the material.
ive been doing other projects as well. new floor in horse trailer, door for barn, new windows in mothers house, and my son has done a couple of 4h projects.

oh well, no rest for the wicked....
