Finally finished a sofa table for my daughter. Top is bead board, with a piece of plexiglass found in the moving van we rented for her move to her first place. I set the trim to match the top of the height of the plexiglass. There is a place for pictures between the plexiglass and the bead board. Finished in the same distressed blue that I used for her $25 coffee table. The tile fills the void where the plexiglass wasn't long enough to fill the entire top. I figured it would be good for a flower vase or something.

Love every bit of that! :bow:

I started a 20x20deck project now I need to dig 25 post holes tomorrow. M.y forearms heart already lol



what are you using for your deck??

Im looking at doing mine in spring... ive looked at trek deck but my parents part of it is warped. not sure I want just wood with Thompson seal and redo every couple of yrs


choices.....arghhh


I am leaning on 2x6 or 2x10 and a crap load of Thompson’s I live on the dry side so moisture should be less of a concern. I am also having to trench for all my beams in order to stay under my threshold for my slider.

Poured the rest of my counter tops, a coffee table top and the seperate backsplash pieces this week.

The fake rock edge forms I used are going to require some extra work to make them look better. On the list of things to do this winter once the rest of the kitchen is done

Very cool. You are much braver that I am, but I bet it will look fantastic when finished.

+1. I've been intrigued by the concrete countertops.
I bet that is going to be stunning. More pics please!

Hey Mr. PMB,

If you can easily unbutton a panel on the welder and drop about a half dozen old fashioned moth balls inside, it might prevent future tenants from considering occupancy. Needs to be done a couple times a year as they dissolve over time. Rodents hate 'em. Same with peppermint. Has to be real peppermint, not artifcial flavor. Oh, make sure the mothballs stay clear of the fan blades, if your unit has a fan.

Happy Holidays!

I did not see this until now... Not sure how I missed it.
Thank you Mr Traut. Sounds like good advice. The two welders that came from Idaho both had big pack rat nests in them... I've never had them out here on the wet side.
But I bet that the moth ball / peppermint works on our mice too. :thumbsup2:

I've never known mothballs or peppermint to actually work.

Saw where mice had actually dragged the mothballs to their nest and chewed them up.

Peppermint is supposed to deter spiders and such, as well. I made up a spray bottle with peppermint oil and witch hazel. Sprayed some spiders. They just said thanks for the shower and went about their business. Never left the vicinity.

How can I help you, and/or make you smile, today?

The problem with being on social media, is that you know too many people that you don't know.

Joy is not a feeling. It is a strength. Some people are stupid, that's all there is to it. (And sometimes that stupid person is me/you.) Sometimes you just have to let stupid people be stupid. Don't let stupid steal your joy.

Holding onto unforgiveness and resentment is like drinking poison and expecting that other person to die. Anger will eat you up.

Yep. Those just become part of a nice soft nest.

My old Chevy has been sitting in the back yard for about 10 years and had become Rodent Central Station. I put mothballs on the air cleaner, in the jockey box and on the floor, and no more vermin. It's important to use the good old fashioned Grandma's style mothballs with napthalene (?), I think. Some of the newer organic PC shit won't even work on moths.

That's because they don't want to hurt them, they're trying to garner their votes...

I built a "lighting generator"....actually just a step up transformer in a tackle box. I added a switch and a light so I could be sure the power was off before moving anything.

I plan on doing some "Lichtenberg wood burning"
