Under flash it really shows up. In regular lighting you don't really see it unless your looking for it. I had to sign my work! Thanks for following, dorf dude...

Wow i love the work you have done on your home. I cant honestly say i would have done the same in your shoes, i just might have taken a wrecking ball to it and rebuilt. Id love your opinion on what i have done though, its not that far along yet but i would like your expert opinion! The link is in my signature if you would be kind enough to stop by! Good job!

I've been keeping an eye on your progress. I'll chime in if I see something. I could not knock the house down. If I did then I would have had to set the new structure way back off the side walk. I would have lost a lot of my yard. That is the case with many structures here. Thanks for following. Big progress next week in the spare bedroom. dorf dude...

Shu, thought you might have 'put' a Ford sign or even 'Mia's' name on the cork board, but I plan to go to Portland Swap meet this year..soo..might find a nice Ford sign..for..your garage..will prolly not be big, because 'gubbermints' here and there want a 'mortgage' payment to send same to you ===8^)
Cheers

German House Rebuild


Have you ever had one of those "Brain Fart" days? I had a bad one today. Last week at work we got this great pallet in made of 2x12. I broke it apart and decided to make a table for the stone sink. I went to the tile store today and picked out the counter top, no problem. I got tiles that look like wood planks, really cool. I got home and started making the frame. First go around I didn't take in to account how big it really was in relation to the size of the bathroom. Cut it again 2nd time I don't know where my brain was at. Now it's dark and snowing so 1 more time tomorrow. Here's a pic of it being too big. dorf dude...

DD -

You will make it work and being the right color makes it easier, since thes tone could have been a 60's, 70's Ford turquoise. It will work good with the cork.

Make the sink and then surround that as a unit from below and throw away the 2x12 forms to support it well by a bottom base to minimize the depth away from the back wall.

I assumed you were thinking of usung it in that room.

Dick, sorry for the false presentation. I just happen to have the sink upstairs laying on the floor with the cork background. Not where it will actually be used. Just a storage situation at the moment. Again sorry for misleading you. Wait a couple days and it will become clear.

Here is a picture of my wood work shop. It really sucks not having a proper shop with heat! Next year maybe. I've been building the table for the stone sink. I came across a deal at the local grocery store for mixed set of saw blades. 3 for $20. I tried the medium toothed blade and it cut like butter and no wobble. I went back and bought the last set they had, snag. I'm set for saw blades for awhile. I ended up buying a new finishing sander, a Bosch. This is the best sander I have ever laid my hands on. Light weight, compact, variable speed and very quiet. I'm the dorf dude and I endorse this product! Here are a few pics. dorf dude...

I just finished staining and gluing the tiles on top. Getting there. Once the sink is mounted and the table is in place I will close the sides , install 1 or 2 shelves and work out some sort of a front door. The screws on the front will be capped off with a black plug. The bottom of the legs have a 45 degree cut that is hard to see. dorf dude...

You missed your calling Shu, you should have been a woodworker! That's first class.

I'll have to ask at the grocery store where the saw blade sets are.

Funny, I can't buy wine at the lumberyard either.
