    Finally got the shop roof finished up today. Whew!

    I had extra length on the front so the tarp had to be trimmed. After trimming I used contact cement to hold it in place under the overhang until I could get it fastened.

    Got the flashing installed.
    IMG_8115.JPG

    All the edges of the plywood decking were rounded over with a router and round over bit so there would be no sharp edges to wear on the tarp.
    IMG_8116.JPG

    I used 1x6 decking boards to sandwich the tarp between the plywood and the boards giving lots of contact area to hold it since I lost my grommets when I had to trim it down. The sides and top were fastened directly to the frame through the grommets with galvanized roofing screws and fender washers.

    I'm mighty proud to be done, it's been abnormally cold here the last week or so and I'm not use to working outdoors. I've froze my behind off and all my old man bones ache from head to toe!!! :17: :3:

    Got a little more organizing done on the shop today but it's still in a mess. I had taken it as long as I could not turning something though so I turned the top for the latest bottle. :dblthumb: This one will be going to @Stringer when finished.

    Lets see if this works. I finished the Bush Bottle for @Stringer today and rather than taking a slew of photos trying to get a handful of good ones I decided I'd try taking a short video to see how it turns out as far as showing the features of the bottle.

    Since the video is less than 1 min long I uploaded it as unlisted. It won't show up in my regular YouTube videos list so if you'd like to watch it you'll have to do so from this link.



    ETA: Sorry guys, it's pretty poor quality but it was worth a try. :8:

    You're humble to a fault, Tim, it turned out great, and brings my level of anticipation to new heights!
    If that video doesn't sell another I don't know what will.
    Here's a cup lifted to Tim's skill and perserverance. Cheers, ladies and gentlemen!

    Worked on a Honey-Do item today... made the wife a cake. :11:

    IMG_8154.JPG

    It is a Honey-Do but it's not a cake. :dblthumb: The wife has a favorite lamp that she uses while doing craft work and the cheap sheet metal base broke off of it. I asked her if she wanted a new lamp or that one fixed and she said she'd rather have that one fixed as she really liked it. The only piece of wood I had readily available that was big enough was this really spalted piece of maple. Since this is a standing lamp the 10# weight goes up inside the base for weight/support. The only thing about the lamp she didn't like was the height so I cut it down for her and had to re-attach the threaded end where it attaches to the base. The wood was super spalted and full of insect holes. I had a tube of wood filler that I never use (if I have to fill something I make my own filler) so I just slathered the whole thing with the filler and rubbed it in. :9: When doing a project for myself I get to play and experiment, :4: working for others I have to be all serious and... stuff. LOL :57: We'll see how it turns out looking once I sand all the icing off the cake... I mean filler off the wood. :)

    Glad I could torture you two just a little. ROFLMAO :4:

    Wish the three of us and thirty or so others could share a piece of cake and a campfire! I still haven't completely given up hope of being able to host the "Dirt Time In TN" meets again. Some of the best weeks & weekends of my life!

    After more than 40 years of doing it, working with wood never ceases to amaze me!!! This piece of wood was barely even suitable for throwing on a fire... yet now it's very pretty and will serve a very useful purpose... keeping momma happy. :4:

    Thanks bud! Still more to go on it but it for sure looks much different than it did. I'll get some better shots of it when it's finished. Just wish I had thought to get some before I started filling all the holes and tracks.

    0206191716.jpg 0206191721.jpg Pictures just don't do it justice, a thousand pictures won't replace having it in hand! Fit and finish is awesome, stopper rolls out so nicely. Had to pry it out of my son's hands, he was entranced by the smell. Wonderful job, Tim, your handiwork is second to none!

    Finished up the Honey Do lamp base yesterday and Mrs WW is very happy to have her lamp back. :dblthumb:

    Didn't turn out too bad for a piece of wood that 99.9% of folks would have thought was totally worthless.

    Greetings,

    And to think that this piece of wood would have ended in the fireplace...

    Hail the WW!

    Nicely done, this is better than professional looking quality.

    Regards,

    Christos
