What do a ketchup bottle, a ice cream container lid and a bit of wire have in common?
Time to start on building this heat pump shelter before the snow starts to fall. Last year was terrible weather for the big fan on the heat pump. The constant snow fall and thawing temperatures meant plenty of ice build up on the heat pump fan. I’ve never done log work like this before so its all new to me. Time to start on the corner posts.
Spent some time today at the Highland Games in Antigonish this Friday July 12, 2014. Visit the ‘Country Rune’ kiosk, upcycle creator and seller of jewelry rings, bracelets and wind chimes made from kitchen cutlery and silverware dishes. Also watched a few minutes of the caber toss.
It starts with some recycled plywood that’s been sitting in the garage for 5-6 years… just waiting for a purpose.
Cutting glass is fairly easy. I’done it with reasonable success over the years. The other day I got the idea to cut a couple pieces of mirror for a project. Its a little more difficult than regular glass and I eventually learned…
When I built this garage 7-8 years ago I reused windows from the in-laws large dining room window. I had to make up my own window casings and every other year I’d have to scrape and paint the casings. But, over time the water got in and leaks led to rot and mold. Time to replace them with some solid vinyl windows.
I purchased two of these 5 drawer map cabinets. They are big! Too big for the house, which was the original destination. They are 48 inches wide and 36 inches deep. Two units stacked on top of each other makes a height of 36 inches.
September will soon be here so its time to prep the wood sheds for the winter. That means covering up the split firewood to keep the rains and snow off.
I obtained this bulk lot of 20 map cabinets at a government surplus auction. I was going to keep a few and sell the rest. But, nobody was interested so I am recycling them as storage solutions for the workshop.
