Good day of demo today. Was solo today. This will get a new zero entry tile shower, heated floors, new soaker tub, etc.

Got the majority of the wainscoting made and primed. Still have a triangle for under the stairs and then a run up the stair wall. Have to make cap and molding and some filler boards that will go where it's much to small a space for a panel.

Client was pretty pleased with it too. Sno and I were pretty happy. Install for the most part went smooth. Unlevel, unstraight floors, out of plumb walls, you know.. normal stuff to contend with.

Looks awesome, it's a shame they kept that 356 door casing that looks like it was undercut with a sawzall. It detracts from the quality workmanship you've done.

Never heard it called 356 door casing. It's called Colonial Casing around here.

Should we talk about cripples vs jacks now? Regardless of what everyone calls that profile of trim, does anyone actually still use it or consider it to be attractive? All the 25-40 year old spec houses are full of it around here, I've always thought it looked tacky.

Fun little project I got to run by myself. Client needed a pad for a wheelchair lift onto the back deck. I got to run a brand new Deere 17D (fantastic piece of mini iron) for digging it out. Of course it rained all day while I was trying to finish it, but I think it turned out alright.

Re: Post A Picture Of Your Current Job (Part III)


Did some turd polishing for a friends Mom. 1950's style Oak cabinets. Original to the house. Greasy, grimey old and dirty. Falling apart a bit for the upper on the drying rack. The doors and drawer fronts are mitered and stapled on the rear with those big miter closing staples. How any company can use those on doors is beyond me.

Clean everything down with denatured alcohol, sand it to 150, apply a good coat of Vinyl Sealer, scuff with 320 and two coats of ML Campbell's Stealth, a conversion varnish, tinted in Behr Flannel Gray.



Still need the final coat on the doors and a clear coat on the insides of the drawers.


Finishing 101. Starts out as a turd, put paint on it and now you have a shiny turd.

Re: Post A Picture Of Your Current Job (Part III)


Got a call that went like this. Need some redwood 2x6 handrail milled up. Around 80 feet. Know you have the shaper cutters somewhere in your drawers full of them.

Turns out I had some router bits to make it work. OK I'll do it. They drop off 170 lnft of 16' and 18'. Scrapped using the shaper, that chits too long to support and run with out bobbles. So I dragged out my old friend 'Speed' - Speedmatic. 1200lnft of passes later and 30gallons of chips and sawdust - viola Easy Peasy 7 hours later some strange reason I was whopped.

I have found that if I load them into paint and then save them without doing anything else that the picture orientation will be the same way that I took them.
