nice work Slyder.

I painted my living room. Im thinking about painting the trim.


Your wife is lucky, I've been restoring my house for oh...ten years! I hire contractors which is expensive and a pain in the ass. I might consider one of these husband things in the future as a cheaper alternative.

Beware, plenty of men out there who can't change a car tire

So true. I was at work mid summer I saw a girl with a flat tire and a guy that stopped to help her fix it. I drove by 10 minutes later and the girls car was lying on the ground with no jack or tire on it and the guy was gone. Guy put the jack in wrong, didn't use e-brake and the car fell to the ground. He could have really gotten hurt or hurt her. Luckily no damage to her car. So he broke her car more and just left.

I had her spare tire on and on the road in under 10 minutes.

Backstop, That patio looks great! That kind of work is AZZ-BUSTING! Two years ago, I put in a similar paver patio with two paver staircases out to the backyard, and four terraced, raised garden beds. It's incredible how a hand dug hole in the ground absorbs a pickup truck load of crushed stone. It's brutal doing it with a shovel and 5-gallon buckets. You deserve a case or three of your favorite suds.

This year's projects were much more funner for me. I built two skin-on-frame kayaks. One 17'9" ultra-low volume West Greenland kayak, and one 13' recreational kayak. Over 150 yrs in the Greenland and over 100 yrs in the rec.



Paddling the Greenland.



A riverine kayak camping trip with my oldest and our Warbonnet and Hennessy hammocks.

AAA, those are some badass looking kayaks. That's some fine work you did there.

and you're right, it's amazing how much crushed stone you need building a footer. I only made my footer 4 inches deep, because it won't have vehicles on it, and it seemed to take forever.

as far as suds are concerned, I probably drank a case or 3 while i built the damn thing!!

Those look great...how much do those babies weigh and how much time? I'd love to rig a sail to the 13 footer...I like to float not paddle
