I've gotten further with the garden. My first batch of corn has come up. I planted a 2nd today. I'm going to deploy for a month and didn't want to bother anyone to water my plants. I picked up a Gardena timer and irrigation parts. After much trial and error I got the correct spray pattern. I didn't want to hit the tomato's but there was no way around it. I planned on a drip system but it wouldn't work correctly. If I built houses around them then it could work but I don't have that much time. Here are a couple pic's. Yes my fence is bent. It happens when it gets hot. The plastic expands. I need to make bigger holes so it has some free play. Another thing on the "To Do" list. dorf dude...

German House Rebuild


I finally got the rest of the kitchen cabinets hung. If you don't have a helper use a beer case and a couple cans. Campbell showed up and gave me a hand with the rest. I will need to brace the end cabinet with a threaded rod through the ceiling. I don't want a foot on the counter top. That would get in the way. Here are a couple pic's. dorf dude...

I got the support rod in on the end cabinet. It sure is ugly. I will need to box it in with something. Does anybody have a unique limb or wood that is 12" long and thick enough for a 1/2" hole running through the center? In a week I will deploy to Poland and I will keep my eyes open for something there. Here is a pic, dorf dude...

Here is a pic of the backside of the cabinets. I'm thinking of some tongue and groove up to the bottom of the overhead beam. Any other ideas? dorf dude...

Shu, if you can't find anything suitable over your way, I'm sure there would be lots of arbutus pieces over here that might work. Let me know.

Have you thought about slipping the threaded rod through a piece of chrome tubing?

"Have you thought about slipping the threaded rod through a piece of chrome tubing?"

That would be just to plain. Now I'm thinking of a limb with a fork in it. Having the Y at the ceiling. That would look cool. dorf dude...

OK, would the rod be visible anywhere if you used a fork? Or would you just want the fork to head off to one side so the rod would be buried?
