My son and I dug a hole yesterday. 18' x 48' addition.

WHERE DID ALL THIS DIRT COME FROM? I think it was multiplying every time I went after another scoop.
That's a 55 gal barrel and a 6x6 in the lower left for reference.

I knew I had a solid driveway by the building, but we scraped up over 30 tons of rock

I guess I don't have a very good concept of volume.

I have a couple days off next week. I hope to get the forms up and concrete poured by end of day 2. We'll see how good my concept of time is. I may still be working on forms.

Couldn't get the pics in my 1st post.

Last Tuesday, I pulled the form boards and stakes, then carried some dirt back in where we dug a little deep.

I built a "bridge" so I wouldn't be driving on the new concrete. Two piles of dirt, two 2x6's on the dirt, and two 2x8's to drive on.

I don't care what the spelling book says, concrete is a 4 letter word.

Yesterday, I put up a short block wall on the uphill end, put in a tile around the footer to keep water out, put a double plate on the new footer and screwed 2x6's to the side of the old footer.

The triangle of concrete is for a bigger door to drive in on the end.

Doesn't look like much for 12 hours of work.

Why are my pics on clickable links instead of just showing in my posts?

The Kreg Project Center is great by itself, but 2 KPC's are better than 1 when you want to set up a 12 ft. work station in a couple minutes.…

Festool Domino 500

The first thing I will do is set price aside and focus on the tool and why I bought the Domino. 

      I have orders for a few dining tables and chairs.  I have made one prototype chair, while I have all the tools to make angled…
