roccoa,

That is one ourstanding show of workmanship! GORGEOUS!

The style is wonderful, the color of those cabinets is fantastic, and the layout is just perfect.

I especially like those lights over the island! So Classy.

It sure doesn't get much better than this one.

Congratulations on a Perfect job.

"Somewhere", I have pictures of the earlier stages of this shower I'm building from scratch (in my new home). This was my first attempt at building a shower... in fact, my first attempt at tiling as well.

Here, I have taped off sections of the tumbled stone tile and started to grout it using epoxy grout.

yeah, ummm..thanks.. haha. It was my first time working with epoxy grout and I wasn't sure how messy it would be, so I grabbed one of those freebie hotel shower caps to save my hair.... NOT RECOMMENDED! After working up a sweat for over an hour, it was like a sauna under there! Next time I'll just use a painters rag or a welding beanie.

This is a safety gate I made to keep the toddlers from tumbling down the deck stairs. It's made from some Cedar I had left-over from another project I finished last summer - replacing the columns on the front porch.

I looked, off-and-on, for a couple of months online for plans to build a gate, but couldn't find anything. So I gathered all the pieces of wood that I had and made it as I went along.

From the other side, the braces and screws are visible. I used stainless steel screws and (galvanized?) corner braces. The way it's screwed together, I'm not sure that it needed the braces, but they're on there anyway.

The edges of each board are rounded off with a router. Every board is sanded smooth so there won't be any splinters in anyone's tiny hands and fingers.

Here is the one it replaced. I tried for 2 summers to find a taller, stronger gate that the kids couldn't climb over. The ones I found were all intended for indoor use, like this one, which only lasted a couple summers... and needed to be repaired again.
