I’m told “no one builds a door”, but here it is (in process) as proof that *someone* does. Cutom-fit to the secondary shed, a second one is needed before the weather turns nasty. It it took one entire 6″x8′ board, ripped in two, cut in pieces, glued up with #20 biscuits, and covered with leftover T&G pine. With reused hinges, it cost nothing … but time.
My sliced rocks are now 100% free from the glue that held them to the fiberglass backing. This pile will become my beautiful bathroom floor, assembled piece by piece, though WHEN I cannot say because winterizing everything is priority number now, especially since we had the first frost last night.
Pricey sliced stones being soaked in hot water to release them from fiberglass mesh and adhesives, to be followed by elbow grease to remove all the booger-like glue for a superior bond to cement board.
Each stone will be set by hand. As manufactured, for use as a border only, obvious and unacceptable parallel lines would be a permanent and irritating feature, violating my sense of aesthetics and ruining my imaginary bathroom beach. This freestyle tile will be far more labor intensive, but who would accuse any tiny-builder of taking the easy route?
A contractor was demolishing a deck and it was a lot of work removing screws, nails, and joist hangers, but I got to take as much wood as I could. There was more to be had, but not enough time to take it apart. Good construction takes a lot of power to undo! These boards will be used on various projects, especially the new laundry/tool shed (below).
“Serviceberry”? Sounds like someone let Dubya name a plant. The Latin sounds much better.
Thanks to Laura, who gave me these composite rails. I am finally building a compost bin (in progress). It won’t be huge but ya gotta start somewhere.
More organ parts – again, C# and D – are cut in two lengthwise to make instant shelves for a floor-to-ceiling spice rack. It will be installed as a partial wall, per se, alongside the fridge and behind the side door. I consider this another excellent use of space and materials! Yay!
