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?

Pantry slides for heavy application

  Recently purchased two 96" tall pantry cabinets that are 23" deep that only came with two adjustable shelves and two fixed, (one at about 55" and one at the very bottom).  Shelf holes in the walls are drilled 2" O.C.  Like most store-bought…Continue

Miter Saw Recommendation 1 Reply

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
