I can't build anything.

All those other guys told me there's no intelligent design.

I gathered all the materials together but nothing happened.

All the materials are still laying there ......

I'm wrestling with tweaks on injection mold tooling for vacuum containers and coffee mugs. The one shown is a two shot block and presented some significant design engineering challenges getting the finished moving parts to be leak free; but we got it licked after some tweaking. This one isn't delivering for a few weeks, but you can see another model on the Innate site called the Doppio Tumbler for spro with a sipping lid that was a no brainer in terms of the injection block. http://www.innate-gear.com/product-info/doppio/doppio-double-wall-insulated-tumbler

my stuff links here. the fates decided i had to be a carpenter and i finally decided to stop fighting it. beware of what runs in the family.

my carpentry is the only photogenic thing about me. it actually looks better in pictures than it does in real life.

survival, have you climbed in the organs?

I love this thread!

Most of my spare timer not spent climbing is spent building something or remodeling. Yes I am a bit terrified of power tools, the sort with sharp stuff spinning at thousands of RPM, but that just means I am very very careful when I use them. So far, no injury worse than the occasional whacked finger with the hammer. (I did cut off my toe once when matting a piece of artwork but that doesn't count as building or construction, does it?)

My sister has a 70's era condo and whenever I visit there, there is some project. It's amazing the wierd things people will do to a house, that you find when you remodel. Most of my work there has involved very tedious stripping of layers of hideous wallpaper and tons of wall prep and painting work. Replacing crappy old moulding is always satisfying. The most recent project, a few weeks ago, involved finally stripping out the 35 year old carpet from her bedroom, and rebuilding one of the walls which was almost 1/2 inch out from the electric outlets. Turns out the former owner had put some hideous 1/4 inch faux wood paneling on that wall, which he then covered over at some point with not one, but two layers of different plasticized contact paper, which was finally overpainted. It was very satisfying to gut that and turn it back into a normal wall with electrical outlets you could actually use.

Sorry, no photos!

Tony, that is some great stuff!

Do you like that Chinese Elm? There's a bazillion of them here. I've never used any.

Yes, I've climbed in the Organs, but only once so far. Only been back in NM a couple years.

eKat, I will definitely post updates on my project, but I think it will be slow going. So many other things to do here at Casa de Survival....

thanks again, eKat, but i'm getting even with you on the reflections thread.

phylp, sounds like you love your sister way beyond the call of duty.

yea, survival, that chinese elm was a discovery. i have to thank a windstorm that knocked a branch off. if you've got some fresh deadwood, i'd be happy to tell you how i dealt with it.

i heard that the american elm is one of the most expensive hardwoods. its chinese relative has this wonderful luster. i hate to put any varnish on it, because it isn't quite so pretty as when it's just freshly sanded.

the organs is where i got into rockclimbing--27 peaks of red granite and 1 of white. most of it is trad and requires at least an hour's approach. i befriended dick ingraham, the fellow who developed the whole range--a great mentor.

No pics yet, but I just finished swapping three doors, replacing all the soffit, fascia, and corner boards, as well as building a 500sf deck.

Good fun, it being my first job as a GC. Now I'm for some reason looking at being booked out for the summer and early fall!

Someone asked about Trex. I've been to the plant in Fallon. I worked building only decks for four years.

If anyone has any questions I'd be happy to help.

Set the mesquite countertop for the vanity today but had to
test fly it first. Cosmic was available for a spotter/wingman...

Dang, nice projects!

Gabe should post up some of his stadium work shots. Big wall meets construction.

Sorry, not building, but still creating.

Just finished a flagstone carving.

Edit: is it just my imagination or is the front page of ST slowing down a lot lately? More climbing, less posting I guess...
