One other addition......hard to knock the multi-tool. I don't use mine very much....maybe 10x so far...but it does things that would be almost impossible with anything else.

In this case, I had to cut off an inside lip on the bath tub to install the faucets.

It's the Harbor Freight variable speed version....I think I got it for $29 on sale. Worth every penny.

I am....but I also got distracted.....floors came out so nice that the wife wants to redo the one in our daughters bedroom and basically just get a lot of the misc stuff in her room done (I still need to trim out the inside of her windows which were replaced 2 years ago)

One of the big issues in her room was the closet. Not sure what the architect was thinking....but the door into the closet is 4" from the wall. Hence, you basically can't put anything against that wall or it blocks the doorway.

Solution? Move the doorway. I have wood...I have a hammer....I have drywall...I have mud....let's move a wall.

Oh....and I 'borrowed' some of the wood from her closet floor to finish the pub floor.

Here is some eye candy for you BigJim.....

Got the first piece of the bar top cut last night and glued. Because the section where this is going is wider than the slabs I have....I have to glue them together.

Love the smell of cut Mahogany....

See the post above....see that piece of wood?

This is it after being sanded. Found a place just around the corner from me....they have a 52" wide planer/drum sander. I'm in hog heaven....opens up all sorts of potential projects. He did all three pieces for me for $100.....a bargain when you consider what it would have taken me in time to do it myself.

Yep.

There's no such thing as too many clamps.

Yup.......but it's fun.

Making progress on the pub bar......after getting the solid Mahogany slabs planned and sanded...I have them rough cut to size.

The miter cut was much longer than my radial arm saw could do so I did it with my circular saw and a guide. It's not true enough for gluing. I'm going to contact my 'source' to see if I can borrow their joiner.

I picked up a router bit from the local Rockler store....I like the profile.

Overall, we are very happy with how it's coming along. The height is perfect....

My wife is working on the mirror for the wall. She is doing a custom design where she will etch the glass herself. She is not sure yet if she is going to use etching chemicals or use my sand blaster.
