Timber Frame Barn Remodel #9: A little clean up goes a long way

08-07-2018 02:43 PM by PoohBaah | 11 comments »

I had a little extra vacation time build up and decided to make it a long weekend. Vacation though it was not. I went and borrowed a friend’s dump trailer and went at cleaning the old hay loft out. There was old hay and straw that mice had chewed threw the twine all over the place up stairs and I knew that I wanted to get rid of it before the new siding was in place. Well it took 3 full loads of the dump trailer that is roughly 8’x14×3’. And man I was a tired pup af...

Timber Frame Barn Remodel #4: Then there was less below and more above

05-07-2018 04:35 PM by PoohBaah | 9 comments »

Also things in the fields are going well and nearly all the cattle are moved to pasture. Even with all this going on I actually had a few free hours to get back into my barn and start cleaning. I started a fire in my burn barrel and also in my fire pit. So by dividing and conquering I was able to make some pretty decent headway. You can see in th...

Timber Frame Barn Remodel #3: Slow, very slow progress

04-03-2018 04:45 PM by PoohBaah | 7 comments »

Well, it has been 6 months since the last update and well not much has changed. Between fall harvest, winter and now calving season coming early there was not much progress on the old barn but we are starting to gain some momentum now. I have been in contact with a local guy that is going to put the new roof on for me. I was in Menards on Saturday to pick up supplies for a new set of back steps and while loading the lumber I noticed they had 45 sheets of 12’ white steel in the discount ...

I Love Scuba...taking a break from a remodel! (Remodel Pics)

06-01-2017 06:20 PM by woodburnigtlp | 0 comments »

Hi Friend! I know for most of us here, woodworking isn’t our only hobby or job we make a living off of! For me, one of my many hobbies is scuba diving! I have been in the midst of a kitchen remodel (more on that below) for a couple of months now and could sure use a trip right about now! I have been certified for almost 15 years now and it is one of the most exciting hobbies I have. I have been all around the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico, as well as a few Pacific Coast dives. Being i...

Our mirror was very plain and boring to look at. It also looks makes the entire room look bland. Framing in the mirror really spruced up the room and was a very simple and quick project. Check out how I did this weekend project. Stop by my channel and subscribe for more content.

03-20-2017 04:24 PM by WoodTraveler | 0 comments »

My time home for march was pretty busy so I didn’t get much done on my house. I went up and did the dreaded taxes and walked away with a grin, I will soon have money to do quite a bit. Along with stove to refurbish. when i did get to where I could get a few things done this is what happened. First thing I wanted to do was put up the door that i hadn’t last month to the back porch and since it was going to rain and already had a couple times on me. I knew it needed to go up. I k...

Shop Remodel #35: All about that base!

01-18-2016 12:53 AM by bearkatwood | 1 comment »

Which came first, the mortise or the tenon?Well for me today it was the tenon. Where we left off my dog and cat were at it again Well our undefeated chunky weight champion is still on top, and I can’t get her to find another place to hang out. I had the legs done and I worked on the stretcher for the sides. The bottom ones were easy, they were just 4” wide and straight. The tops were a bit more complex and needed to have a step to keep the two thicknesses even, bu...
