Metal and Wood Clock DIY
This project has been in the works since early fall last year. First we had to source our materials. Of course wood is in abundance in the workshop, the metal we bought locally but the clock parts took a little longer to arrive.
We Bought A Truck That DUMPS!
The last few years, on countless occasions, one of us has said, “It would be so much easier if we could just dump this.” We considered buying a trailer that dumped, but already having two trailers for different uses, we thought three would be overkill. Then we mulled over the idea of converting our current truck by buying an insert that dumped. Didn’t really want to do that since it is our only vehicle. Like a dog with a bone, Jim searched online and finally came across this truck for sale.
Takes a licking and keep on clipping
Every lawn mower eventually starts to show its age. Ours is no exception. I can’t even tell you how old it is because we bought it second had at Proudfoot Motors about 6 or 7 years ago. I hose it down about once a month during the season and a good cleaning at the end. The rust though never sleeps here in the Maritimes.
Live Edge Floating Shelves
The weather this weekend meant working on indoor projects. So we decided to cross floating shelves off our list. A while back we picked out two live edge pine boards for this project. They had some drying to do since the kiln isn’t up and running yet.
Crash Course in Welding
Never in a million years would I have thought I would write a post on welding, but here goes…
Any welding we need to have done, we bring to Mike McCarron who owns Maritime Directional Drilling. He is excellent, and only a few kms down the road from us. His company provides directional drilling, really fascinating. No doubt we will continue to bring him any big projects but
weJim thought for the smaller welding jobs we could do it here ourselves.
