Man, I just figured out that I'm a hired gun. Show up anywhere from a week to a year, and go balls to the wall.

Build things correctly, and you're a valuable asset. Screw up, and you're toast.

It's kind of fun filling in with local builders, they expect a slacker and get a well rounded builder. (Well rounded refers to my knowledge).

I like running my own show, but jumping into projects and enacting positive results is kind of fun too. I get to meet all types of people and make some great connections.

Viva trabajo.

Just finished the bed and nightstand that was commissioned for a client in Sacramento. The bulk of the work was done in the last month at our old home and workshop, as I was frantically packing and getting ready to move. I had to spray the last couple of coats of lacquer outside at the rental home, waiting for warm, windless days; I still had a couple tiny bugs decide to commit hari kari in the wet finish, necessitating a light sanding and recoat, but at least it is now completed, save for the wrought drawer pull on the nightstand.

Not really I style that I personally love, but a fun project nonetheless. Curly cherry, wrought iron, and brass.

Nice pieces, Edge.

Been awful busy lately with last minute winter prep, but found an evening to throw together the airgun pellet trap I've been wanting for years. Nothing more than a $5 salvaged cabinet from the local Habitat For Humanity Restore, plus 34 pounds of electrical Duct Seal, a pair of steel bars to protect the edges of the shelves, and some magnets. That much putty gives me 2" in depth, which should be good for up to 18 foot pounds of energy (my rifle is ~12fpe and drives a domed .22cal 18grain pellet at ~850fps about 5/8" deep). And just in case of a miss, the whole thing is backed with 3/4" plywood (plus the 1/4" back of the cabinet.

Best part is that the only sound is the pellet hitting the paper. The pellet embedding into the putty is completely silent, which makes it perfect for a basement airgun range. Still need to ad some whiteboard to the inside of the doors for scoring, but was more than good enough for a bit of fun this past weekend.

Edge, nice work as always. But I can see how it isn't your style.

Gotta climb up on the steep azz roof to cut the exhaust hole.
Might have to get the crampons out - it is a steep one. :-(

Nice Edge:

It may not be your style, but I doubt many here would turn down those pieces.

I love this thread.

We had some neighbors over the other day and they had a five year old boy with them. He and I went looking for old toys in the basement. He seemed to have a pretty good time with this thing I made 25 years ago. My boys are 27 and 30 now. Cheers, Z

Damn, that's a long ways down and it's steep!
Luckily, I was able to cut the whole from the attic but to do the gooping
and nailing even a hard man needs some help, right?

I read about this in Freedom of the Hills. Yeah, that's the Annapurna
rope from the last century and my favorite jug bootied from the base of El Cap.
And I know the exhaust fan jack is nailed on with at least two roofing nails!

P.S. I love the combo of the siding with the shingles.
