There hasn’t been much woodwork done recently, as I stated in my last post, rendering was the order of the day, while the weather is so nice it just has to be done, so the last week, on and off I have turned this area

Into this area,

and finally this:

and what a difference it has made, but that left one problem to be resolved, storage, because the area was a dump, nothing got put away, it was tucked where ever there was a recess, that now has to change. so with 1” x 6” boards, I made a simple pocket hole shelving unit, and because it was pine, I painted it.

Once it is dry, the area can be tidied up…next week, back to rendering!

Yes, yes quite an improvement. Rendering, as in reducing beef suet to a liquid or lard? If so that’s an especially smelly job for a summer day.

Russell I think it’s an English term for coating the walls with plaster or cement?

Hey Phil it’s in a blog so it doesn’t HAVE to be woodworking.

Good to see you posting.

Phil,

I know about maintenance on houses. Especially after building a privacy fence, a Garden shed that holds my dust collector, and a small house/shed/feeding station for the outside cats. I hated feeding them in 20 below Fahrenheit!

I checked your projects page? My friend challenged me to build a piece of furniture. Although I have more maintenance than I have days left in my life, I built my little Butt Bench. Been sitting on it in the shop/studio grooming and feeding my cats. also used it to stand on to get my short legged body up over the fenders of my 3/4 ton truck.

Your turn?

You’re crafty Tom, I vaguely remember you mentioning this to me at the time, but I laughed it off, and thought I had got away with it!! As a result I accept your challenge, and will enter two pieces, I have made, one I mentioned in my Blog, the other I finished yesterday!

Looking forward to your projects. Mine too!

Had to rehab my floor standing belt sander. Good thing as I’ve not done any maintenance since I assembled it in 2005. Belt was broken, only the outer band holding it together.
