This wood was milled from local trees - the Cypress for the table and bench is a small part of 4 60 ft trees which were threatening a house. The base cuts were close to 3 ft. and we took about 15 or 20 logs off the job, all craned out. The euc grew on the playing field of the school I went to as a kid, La Jolla Elementary. It was also removed because it was deemed a hazard. The tree was 30 ft tall when I was in 3rd grade, and I happened to notice it had been cut down a few months ago when I was at a school event with my daughter. The guys doing the job that day had problems with their chainsaws, and couldn't finish bucking up the trunk, so it was still laying on the ground where they dropped it. It would have gone to the dump, but I arranged to pick it up the next day, and milled it in my driveway. It yielded 8 slabs.

It's drying well, and should make something really cool in a few years.

Now that it's working I'll post a summary of the quick and dirty 1957 Case 310 tractor/loader/backhoe rebuild sometime soon, but in the meantime took today (and half of yesterday and the day before) off for this:



Won't win any awards for taste, clarity or color, but there's nothing like fresh homemade maple syrup. Posted a couple pics of the DIY evaporator when I built it last year, but short version is it's a typical Home Depot barrel smoker with side box, to which I added a sheet metal collar, chimney and restaurant-supply full-size deep steam pans. I get ~3 gallons per hour evaporation, and what's in the pic is what remains of ~60 or 70 gallons of sap (currently ~2.5 gallons on the way down to 1.5). It's all Norway Maple from the neighbor's yard (10 trees, 23 taps), so tastes different than commercial but IMO better. I find Sugar Maple cloyingly sweet, and Norway seems to have an underlying bitterness that gives it a bit more depth of flavor.

Hey, builders...

I'm trying to put sliding doors into two locations with a sloped ceiling- one opening will be a pocket door, the other is a closet. Both have angled ceilings at the top.

A traditional top-track hung door won't work...got any sources for a bottom-rolling door hardware? The closet could have three panels (in bypass)...

Hafele is the go-to source for good sliding door sh!t. Made in Austria, Germany,
or Switzerland. Need I go on? Their online catalog blows big time though.
I don't understand why you can't have a top rail system. You've got to have
something up there so why not a small beam to hang the rail from? They make
a bitchin pocket door system with a timing belt that opens two doors at the
same time so you don't need as deep a pocket on either side. It's a pain to
install but it is Porsche quality. And, yes, you pay for it.

The closet door will probably have 3 panels- the rightmost will be cut to the angle of the ceiling, with very little top rail from which to hang the door. The r/o of the closet is ~87".

The other pocket door has a similar, very limited top rail by which to hang the door.

So it will be open above? That ain't gonna fly. You at least have to have
some kind of guide track on top even with a bottom weight-bearing track.

There will be only a few inches (at most) of top rail on which a guide could be fixed- not nearly enough to hang the weight of the door.

Edit: (I can't afford a Porsche....)
