Not following you on the gaps. They'll be covered by the crown (gap meaning the t&g stops 1" short of hitting the rock in places, or the top of the rock is a little shy of the level of ceiling due to the pitch).

I see what you've got going there though...looks like a PITA!

When you miter your piece to be coped on your saw, you need to add that ten degrees into the mix. Depends on how you are cutting.

You could also alter the spring angle of the level pieces.

Or if it's painted, call the caulk truck.

Wilbeer, what are those two white tubes used for in the bottom pic; I'm not familiar with those.

HA. Sealant. Note they are not open!
Sounds like you are going to get familiar with sealant up in BOULDER.

Are you ready for the zombie apocalypse?‏ Well, maybe I'm over-preparing....

But my house got robbed again yesterday. They smashed in through my french doors.
dammit, where's my dvd player???  f*#kers

They ransacked every room, but didn't actually take all that much stuff. Just my "home theater system" aka DVD player and subwoofer (but not the other speakers.) Worst of all they took my old shotgun that I got from my favorite uncle when I was ~10 years old.

Yet, for the second time in a row, the f*#kers didn't touch a single piece of my skiing or climbing gear....

So...... to what I'm building.......

My temporary repairs are actually, oddly, much more solid and secure than it was before. Should I leave it like this? Might appeal to a certain type of gamer grrl.

Geeky, but fun and surprisingly versatile. The $25 computer... raspberry pi. Building Perl scripts on it because my regular Linux server went south and I'm waiting on a new CPU. And this whole little computer is running a Debian kernel. I can surf the web and write Perl. That's all I need right now.

HappyIdiot, bummer, especially for the second time. I'm not being snarky
but maybe it's time for a security system? They're not too pricey these days.
You could do one yerself with motion sensors that trigger a recording of a
shotgun being chambered and

"Are you feeling lucky today, punk?"

Of course that doesn't work so well in the daytime when most breakins occur.

A rare specimen.

The photo doesn't do it justice, but that's a 20" wide piece of cherry.

The tree was dead standing on the property. It was dropped and Alaska milled into rough sawn. We took it to a proper mill and then installed it as flooring.

There are three pieces with this dimension, so cool to work with this lumber.

We just don't see cherry at this size around here anymore.

Two more coats of Waterlox and the project is done. The stairs look especially nice.

It's a great feeling to take lumber from the property and apply it in the residence. I wish I could do this all the time.

What are y'all building?

Today is my wife's birthday, and also the anniversary of the day we met 28 years ago.

Karol's birthday present, a wind-chime made from found items from our road trip and our old home. The eagle-shaped wood branch was found at Craters of the Moon, Idaho; the obsidian was collected at the Needles Mine in Modoc NF, California; the turkey breast feathers were found near Club Pond in New Durham, NH; and the porcupine quills were found near the Merrymeeting River in New Durham, NH. The beads are sponge coral and black onyx.

I make really cool stuff with tolerances in the low nanometers and microns,
all on a 50 yr old machine.

I wish I could share photos of the part, but I can't.

Big props to all you amazing craftsmen.

I hit my thumb with a hammer on Sat.
Now it's purple, way swollen and hurts like heck.
I hate home improvement projects and working on vehicles.
Only do it myself to save $.

You guys are building some way cool projects,
nice wind chime Edge, like the Modoc needles!
