Not a recent job but one of my favorite houses I built, 15 yrs ago. Just came on the market.

That is a beautiful looking house, although as I get older, I do not like two stories.
There are a lot of vaulted ceilings in the house.(y)(y)

Gonna be a fun one.
Oh yeah. Big beams, decorative hardware, not too far away. If the weather we've had recently holds, it'll be perfect

I really enjoy pretty much all the projects I take on. I had been so nervous about this one as is completely different than my usual, but now I'm excited to get it going.

Made some drawers, sanded some drawers, sprayed some drawers. Put my logo on one of them. Ho hum...

Asked for some spice bottles and got them as a gift. Now to keep myself from being bored stiff I'm making a simple hanging spice rack. 36 bottles will be housed in a 4x9 rack. I decided not to make a 36 hole box but instead made a 9 tiered shelf that 4 bottles sit next to each other instead of being nested independently.

Found a pc of Mahogany that would yield enough wood to make the rack. A pc 8x32", 7/8" thick. Cut it into 2 pcs 3 3/8" wide and then cut one of them in half thickness wise and the other into 1/8" thick strips (3 3/8" wide). Ran the thicker strips though the planer to 1/4".

Used my Osborne EB-3 miter gauge to put a 3º angled slot in the 1/4" thick pcs. Of course had to do opposite angles and the miter gauge is very accurate and I got matching angles on the first try.

Got as far as milling the angled slots and cutting the shelves to length and doing a trial fit.

Got the spice rack glued up. Used a micropoint glue tip to keep the glue contained in the 1/8" slots, worked great! To keep the sides straight I used the tablesaw top as one side of the clamp and a board for the other

I added some backer strips so the bottles can't fall out and then some hanging hooks because that's what I plan on doing. Then sanded that puppy up and 2 coats of clear to finish it up.

Gotta love it when the crane shows up at 1:30 for a 6 hour+ hoist. Got the whole house done but a detached garage remains. Going to get some spots ready to receive stacks of sheathing and he'll be back Friday for a couple hours to finish up.

Damn hot, I think we skipped spring and went straight from winter to summer. 2 months ago we were dealing with -25C, today +30C.

Well the 36 jars fit.

And this will be it's home. I'll be able to remove most of the spices from a shelf we have dedicated to it and just have the bigger refill jugs left there. And more room for other food stuffs.

Can't believe I actually used all 36 jars.

And holy crap spice sensory overload transferring all them from the original bottles to the new jars.

Busy day for me

Went by the kitchen this morning at start getting the first coat on the trim while the tops went in, then down to the pavilion for 3 deliveries that timed out perfectly

Lumberyard with bracing and Simpson hardware. He left and 15 minutes later the stone showed up. He left and about 30 minutes later the timbers showed up.

Got that all tarped, went over some stuff with the homeowner, then back up to the kitchen to finish off painting the trim & beadboard.

Tomorrow I'll get the backsplash in, hopefully get the ceiling second coated as well

Friday grout and plan to finish painting. Electrician Monday, plumber Tuesday, appliances set to be installed the 24th

I bought one, filled it with the jars the spices came in at the store, arranged them alphabetically, and memorized where they go. Then my wife moved them all. The thing was supposed to save space in my kitchen but now I have an entire drawer full of never used glass spice jars and label stickers and I can't even find anything.

Your jobsite looks like Christmas morning. What did I do to deserve this?

I can't remember the order, but I think that makes you a green shirt... (Or whatever makes you have to clean the toilet after my diarrhea...)
