Got a bit carried away with this one, I am not so much a woodworker as a remodeler/builder/visionary. When it warms up a bit, we will be outside a lot!

Thanks Cornelius, Alex, I do have sketches and rough tight architectural prints.

Carried away??? If I got carried away like that, I'd bring up the property value in my spot by 25 percent!

Thank you for all the comments, with cooler weather we have been using the fire pit and enjoying the fall (when not raining or snowing!).

Awesome job! Do you have any plans?

Comment by Neil E. Meiskey on October 6, 2011 at 6:32pm
Karsten, it was a collaboration. A friend of mine is a hardscape/landscape designer installer. He took my vision for the whole project with hishardscape and landscape work and I sketched out the rest. The timber framing was also a joint effort, technical drawing by the men who I worked with and some end cuts designed by me. I also laid out the electrical, gas lines to the grill and water and drain lines for the kitchen area. I have a tendency to work like an artist to some degree, my projects have a tendency to evolve. It works well when I do my own projects but sometimes makes my clients a bit uneasy when I do their remodeling projects. I would have liked to be even more hands on with this project, but at 62 I can't work all day and night like I used to so my compromise was hiring some help to create this project on a more timely basis.

Not really, Neil.  Mine doesn't look nearly that nice.  That is an incredible design.  Did you come up with that all yourself?

Measuring angle of table saw blade 1 Reply

Festool Domino 500

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

Kreg Foreman

I have built many kitchens and finally decided to buy the Foreman, because my latest kitchen consisted of 28 cabinets and I was over my hand hurting from all the drilling, moving the clamp etc., it seemed like a smart choice.
