Part 1: What a load

08-04-2016 02:02 PM by JimDaddyO | 3 comments »

Making use of things other people have no use for. There is a sawmill about an hour away from me. It is run by some Mennonites and they work hard making harvesting and milling logs into what we are all here for. Beautiful boards and timbers with which we use to make our projects. But there is a lot of the tree that is just not useful for sale for this purpose. What to do with the waste? Well in this instance, I heat my home with it.

It’s a work shop, not just a wood shop. There are things that need doing on a seasonal basis around the home. Getting the winter tires on the car is one of them. Now that the summer tires are off, I can give them a good cleaning and inspection. I am trying to make the chrome look as good as it can using a method I saw a few guys doing on You Tube. Not 100% successful, but the rims look much better. View on YouTube

Part 6: Mothers Day

The best gifts for Mother’s Day is the one she wants. I couldn’t build it, but we had fun picking them out. Just a very short extra video I tossed together quick. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zaLr9osY-b8
