I was faked out. The pics from end of the other thread were brought over, but not all the posts. They're still on the other thread.

Took down a 100 year old chimney that was in awful shape. Nothing vented into it anymore so down it came. Was able to remove most of the bricks with a light tap and by hand. I can't believe it didn't blow over before now.

Custom closet that is been a fight since the start. Build a few things to the wrong dimensions and then my painter had some family stuff come up the delayed things again. Either way they are finally done and the client is happy with it.

They asked on the install day if we could change the shelves above the drawers from fixed height to adjustable so I will have to make a trip back the reinstall them.

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


We've been in our current home for three years. My wife has been unhappy with the granite tops in our kitchen. I told her that if she really hated them that much then we would design the kitchen in the basement in a way that we could move the tops downstairs. The white kitchen is upstairs and the brown kitchen is downstairs. We took part of the counter from upstairs and installed it downstairs so that we could finish the installation of the downstairs kitchen. I will post more pictures after both kitchens are completed.

So now one or two items will slip into the little partition areas and she can just pull out which one she needs without going through the hassle of unstacking them.

I think that whole cabinet is for different kinds of pots and pans to be stored in. Mostly stuff used infrequently.

Are you going to answer my question in post #8 or do I have to just figure it out on my own? You’re making it difficult for me to steal your stuff!

I’ve got a situation where I want to coat something (mostly for color) simply with a rag – spraying would be a nightmare.

Well I just make this stuff up as I go along. This "finish" I had used on the cutting board was left over from when I cleaned out my AAA pump. So it was probably about 8oz finish and 20 oz thinner. Cut pretty hard. I could put several coats on in a row because it flashed off so quick. And then I'd wait for it to do a good dry, about 30 minutes and I put on one last coat after I scuffed it with 320.

I'll bet 50-50 with a retarder would work just as well for ragging it on.

I believe Paul is asking about the drawer insert knife holder you made out of the ballizion pieces of maple with dual height kerfs. You had mentioned a cut CV you lied on.

And that's what I told him. It was left over finish I had cleaned out of my AAA pump. Just ragged it on with a paper towel.

You mentioned the cutting board in your response. I thought you were referring to the sliding cutting board over the garbage can.

Did you really finish that on site? Or was that just touch-up?

I missed the cutting board reference, but Leo and I were on the same page. Must be our age. Oh, wait… you’re old too!
