So I am in the process of creating Transition Strips for my home to help give the flooring areas in my home a more complete feel… typically, I would have just done the “normal” thing and bought the premade items from the store when I installed my laminate flooring…. I have to admit I about had a heart attack when I saw the price tag on those things….
Anyone ever have this happen to you? You buy a vintage plane from a flea market and set to restoring it, only to expose a dent in the process of cleaning up/lapping the sides on the granite slab….
Oh well, guess I won’t be attaching a fancy fence or using this one as a shooting plane… But it still makes shavings that a four year old can enjoy!
This Past august I undertook the task of replacing the carpet in the main living areas. The carpet that was installed when we moved into the house was very cheap and showed every bit or dirt almost immediately as a stain. No matter how many times and how thuroughly I would deep clean it, it would just show right back up. Below are some before shots of the install:
This past Saturday I got an opportunity to rework the shop a bit and make it more usable. The first job was to empy everything out of the Garage and to clean the space. I had the pleasure of sharing the time with my kiddos… Only a tiny bit of sarcasm… I really do enjoy having them around, but it does slow things down. Oh well, I just try to remember that getting them in the habit of spending time with me in the shop is smart now, so they will want to participate later….when they can actually follow instructions.
As you may or may not have noticed, the company behind the website of http://www.ToolSelect.com has ceased operations.
I started noticing in July that there was little to no interaction with the tweets that I was sending, and that video posts were coming slower and slower. Not to mention that point redemtions were going unfulfilled. I had ordered a 10 coMANdments poster with points for my dad for Father’s Day, but it never arrived. Continue Reading
This post is a bit slow in coming, sorry, but Life doesn’t like to slow down for my keyboard, apparently.
Previously, I have shared the story of what happened when one too many freebies showed up on my doorstep and the mandate to apply my skills to planning my Son’s Brithday Party.
The time came and we were able to throw a fun party for a great little boy. It is definately the only kid’s party that I have ever seen that has included corporate sponsors. Continue Reading
Never before has a Gorilla come so close to getting me into trouble.
While walking with my Father-in-Law in one of the few true Hardware stores left (Strausser’s in Kansas City) I happened to spy something on the ceiling. Two things that I have a Love for: Advertising items and Gorilla Glue.
OK, I know that this is pretty sad to celebrate, but I have to take what I can get sometimes. I have had a pretty sad little website for a little over a year now, and this site is just infinately better. SO now, http://www.dozersworkshop.com automatically takes you to my WordPress site…. its kinda silly how hard this was for me to finally find the right button to make it happen. Happy Friday!
Its over now, but the official announcement will not be made until tomorrow. Very much a nail biter! Ill let you all know how it went as soon as i know. I am currently in fourth by 4 votes. Thanks for all of your help!
Papa needs a new set of drills! I am in a bind and in a contest. I am trying to win one of three DeWalt tool sets worth either $600 or $280 from ToolSelect.com. I would love to just be able to go out and buy what I need, but it is just not in the budget. I need help to make it happen, and I want to make it worth your while…
After failing miserably in the Alliance Rubber’s Messiest Garage Contest (I don’t honestly know how that happened) the burden still lays on me to get the workshop cleaned up. Add to that the fact that we need to get the flooring done in our house. I will need a place to work on that project, since I am putting in Laminate Flooring starting July 5th. Continue Reading
