That's alright DM, I didn't mind answering all of your electrical, plumbing, structural, etc. questions. I tell ya, my mind is like a diy bible. (you know I'm kidding. I couldn't even write a 10-page diy book for pre-schoolers )

When I saw all that you've done to your house, I was very impressed.

Mrs. DM was giving me the grand tour and I couldn't believe how much you had completed that you hadn't even talked about or shown here on the forum.

It's been months now since I've seen it - you were tearing the last bathroom wall out. I can't wait to see how much more you've accomplished.

2 more little strips above the door for the transom trim and the little half-bath is ALL DONE!
....Well, after the paint dries on them and I put them up, then a fingertip dab or 12 of paint to cover the trim nails, THEN it's complete! The wife loves the dark walnut chair rail and matching baseboards I made.

When she's happy, I'M happy!

The wife ran across this the other day. It's a jewelry box I made some time ago. It's not one of my 'magic' boxes, but it IS hard to open. There's also a wooden insert to separate jewelry into different sections, but I can't seem to find it..... I made the bottom glass inside because I like the sound of jewelry when it clinks on glass, not clunks on wood. LOL

Ok, ok... it was mainly to make it easier to clean, but jewelry still shouldn't ought to 'clunk', am I right?

That looks nice DM. I like the idea of the glass and the metal pieces on the corners add a nice touch.

How old was your puppy in the picture?

She found the BOX, not the PICTURE! LOL

I just took the pics, so I'd say.... ummmm.... almost as old as she is now?

Reminds me of my cat, she's the same way. Has to sniff everything and be around anything that is different.

Funny. This dingaling has to follow me all around the house all day and watch me do whatever I'm working on.
I honestly think she thinks she's supervising.

Haha yep my cat has a virtual white hard hat on her head all the time. LOL

And nice work BTW on your stuff! It's inspiring, as I want to get into woodworking myself once I setup a proper work area.

Thanks. I really like taking a square area of air and building a box around it no-one can open but me. Po)

Just curious, for projects like this, do you still use nails/screws, or is it all glued? And what about cutting tools, do you use smaller, hand tools or still use power tools?

Hmmm, mostly I make the pieces on my table saw and compound miter saw. The latest design is only 7 pieces of glued wood and a few screws inside to secure the locking device.

Cool lamps. I am going to steal some of those ideas.
