I've been working wood since about 1980. I'm a software architect and developer by day. Whether working with wood or software, I enjoy conceptualizing, designing, and building.

Dave,
You asked what sort of finish I used on the cutting board. It was salad bowl finish, I cut it a bit with mineral oil.

Welcome Dave, I have been roofing most of my life and couldn’t help but notice you are sitting on a roof using toe boards, what is the pitch of the roof?

RAH – The roof is 8:12. Nothing at all to a pro, I’m sure, but it felt pretty steep to me. This was on a laundry room / kitchen pantry addition that I built a few years ago. Of course, I managed to time things such that I was nailing shingles on the hottest day of the year.

I was able to buy the same shingles and siding as was on the rest of the house, and match the existing roof line, so the addition blends in pretty well. Here are a couple of pictures:

Thanks for asking!

Welcome Dave!
We used to stop & eat at a nice restraunt on our way to the cities, but I can’t remember the name of it.
