    That stuff isn't even carcinogenic, I'm sure there's better.

    I finished the taxes. So much later than I wanted.
    As much fun as self-dentistry.

    Got my vents and furnace cleaned and looked at for the first time since we moved in 11 years ago. Everything was working so that was good, everything except the humidifier that was installed incorrectly in 2012 and has never worked. Got a new one installed and its running.

    Also bought a 36" iron pipe to try and remove the anode rod from the water tank tomorrow morning.

    Took a bunch of kid outside crap to goodwill.

    This was a fun project. Finally got around to playing with the clamps my wife got me for xmas. Total investment around $40.

    Started by ripping miters on my table saw.



    Got it mostly lined up, glued, clamped then brad nailed. Realized this stage would have been way easier with 3x the clamps



    Turned out pretty decent.



    Now to start roughing it up. First used a flappy disc on the angle grinder



    Then directional blows with the hatchet to give it a faux 'hewn' look.



    Then time to torch



    I took most of the burnt wood off with a wire brush



    Then stain



    French cleat to install



    Pretty stoked with how it turned out

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    Beyond Handymen!

    Found this sticking out of a wall in my Garage....

    What am I looking at? Gas line? 1950’s vintage, at one proving this would have been the exterior of the house.

    Gas line, may no longer be attached at the other end. I had a similar one in my house, but they replaced the entire line years before so it was useless to me.

    Today I rented a power take and did the lawns. Normally WAY to early, but it's been so dry it was no problems. So much thatch came up!

    Interesting, thought it might be. Any easy / safe way to test it?

    I wouldn’t hate having a heated garage, if the rough in is right there haha. Venting from that spot would be a challenge though.

    No completely safe way, but I VERY slowly turned mine while spraying soapy water on it. Bubbles means it's pressurized. Make sure you know where your main gas shutoff is first, just in case.

    It was last weekend, but made a dog house. Big shout to @Ekliptix who did one a couple years back that gave me a couple of ideas! Made a few changes, but liked his concept.

    She's only 11 months old so had to come out for preliminary inspection.

    Lots of work still to do over the next few weeks/months. I've since added a cedar border around the door, added edging, and still need to get a better roof material before I seal the whole thing. Also 3D printed some adjustable vents to add for better airflow.

    Luckily, she's fucking terrified of the thing and has only gone in when we've coaxed her with treats, so clearly it was all worth it.

    Ohh motomaster. Where 48” studs Center to Center measurements are actually 50”... no matter how many beers I have had during a project my measurements aren’t that bad.

    Good thing I had a pile of junk to fashion a new stud from. Bad news, my buddy who was over drinking beer (don’t worry, this was an essential service project) had my saw. Good news, an oscillating tool takes a bite out of a 2x6 like it’s nobodies business.

    It was a good thing I had a very large box of beers for this particular project.

    Your friend was "over drinking beers"... That's as bit judgey, isn't it? I'd hate to be helping you out and then get accused of over drinking...

    If you come help me with a project, and don’t over drink, then I have failed you.
