I am not sure if I ever mentioned how fond I have become of the Marples Japanese pull saws I got from Home Depot… These things are a breeze to use, and last night, while working in the attic, laying down some new bracing for decking, and then the decking I had an opportunity to use said Japanese pull saw to clear out some 1/2” ply bracing (no kidding) that was completely unsupported, and just dangling in to thin air that was over the joists… (I do not think the builders of my house were drug tested…).
Well while I was stooped over in the short attic space, it happened to cross my mind of the traditional bow to one’s opponent in Martial arts, and I wondered, if this wood was my opponent, was I supposed to bow to it before I took the weapon that would cut it down to it?
Yeah my brain works that way… Kind of a dumb thought, but that is what crossed my mind…
Anyway, so the closet space is finished, I have another 4 panels of 2’x4’ 5/8” OSB decking down in the attic, and the remaining totes from LOML’s scrapbooking addiction are in place. I have the shop dog induced drywall hole in the kitchen patched, and mudded, I need to sand it today, and at least prime it.
I have so much more to do, the guests will be arriving on Tuesday, and it looks like I am going to be working this weekend. I think LOML is going to end up having a conniption fit…
All things considered, I’d rather be at the hunting lease right about now.
