ha, you’re the giant sandwich guy…I remember seeing that project a while ago. I enjoyed watching season 1 of the show, so I’ll try and tune in to season 2, good luck!

Be sure to study up on code. I don’t think you’ll have any problems with the woodworking challenges.

I’ll watch since we now have a fellow LJ on the show, but I’m not impressed with the ‘run and gun’ format of the show.
I would rather see how well something can be done, not how fast you can throw something up.

hey everyone,

I need to reply to a couple of you. Just to clarify what I said before, I have been a member of the site for more than 1.59 years just not under this profile.

As for All American Handyman, look for the show to be a lot more interesting, more challenging and more talented
cast of people. I do agree with you, Sarit, you dont really get the craftsmanship with the run and gun format, but it will make for better TV. It really is amazing what you will do when you have all that pressure to finish.

Thanks for the support
Shaun

Hey Shaun, if you win the Fan favorite prize you’ll owe me a cold drink! I’ve been voting for you every day and the wife has been also, just to humor me.
It’s taking away from my beer drinking time!

Good Luck!

I saw you made it past day one but I haven’t had a chance to watch episode two. It’s loaded and waiting on the DVR. You have to admit, the names in the chairs was complete Ass Kissin and you got called out on it. I must admit, I love putting personal details in projects I do for other people but I had to laugh at that one. Keep at it and good luck!!! I would love to be on that show. Just jealous from afar!

Just went and voted. Yes, you got all 10 votes. From what I remember about episode one, you didn’t get much air time. You’ve definetely got some ground to make up. Again, good luck!

The names on the chairs was a little touch just to get noticed on the first day. Please watch the next episode and let me know what you think, I dont think you’ll be disappointed.
Tune in this Sunday also for the shape challenge!!!!!!!

SAW DAY TWO!!! FREAKIN GOOD JOB!!
You got robbed on air time but you pulled ahead of the pack on woodworking. I had to smile when I saw you get the anirondak chair. Talk about playing your strong suit. Congrats and more good luck for the rest of the series.
I have to admit, this is the first time I’ve followed a particular contestant on any TV show. There is actually some anticipation and excitement.
Later, check you out tomorrow when I get home from work.

Rooting for you Shaun.
Been watching each episode. Building stairs is crazy. I can’t believe how well you can figure all this out on your first time. I also couldn’t believe you missed the Heartwood/Sapwood question.

Yeah Shaun, I was stunned you did not get the heart wood/sapwood question. However in the woodworking areas, you seem to produce the best stuff. Keep up the good work and good luck.

Good week! Was there a reason everyone built the top step flush to the floor? Most stairs are dropped to one riser depth below the finished floor so the last step is onto the floor. Just wondering, nothing wrong per se, with a tread even with the floor, just not what I’m accustomed to.
How many total weeks?
Good luck, catch up with you next sunday!

thanks everyone made it through another episode !!!

I dont recall missing the heartwood/ sapwood question, they could have edited it that way.

The stair challenge we were told to go to the top, Im assuming since we braced into the 2×12of the top deck, so if you lowered it one step you wouldn’t have much to brace the top step into. They were looking for a strong connection to the deck.

3 episodes down, 3 more to go I hope.
If anyone wants to email me direct— Mail@shaunkillman.com

Thanks Shaun

Shaun. stumbled on the the show a couple of weeks ago. Watched the back episodes online. I’m enjoying it a lot. Makes me wonder if I could do it.

Hope you won.

Shaun, I’ve added my votes and was a little surprised you had trouble with hanging the 2 doors?? You are by far the best overall handyman in the bunch even if you can’t lay brick worth a damn!! LOL

Thanks for the support
Hardwood flooring trick worked out great, it would never come up.
I have no excuse for the bricks, their water supply ran dry. But the doors were perfect, I wouldn’t have moved on to the closet shelves if I didn’t have the doors working right. I think they were messing with me a little bit.
Enjoy the last episode, but don’t believe everything you see.

Send in your applications for the show, there’s a lot of talent on this website. Take that talent to the show.

Top three is good. Final competitions were tough. Glad it was you and not me.

Well done.

Congrats on the competition. I must echo the sentiments above. Overall, I think you beat them day in and day out. Either way, it must have been fun. Did it take six weeks to film or just a few days? I’m assuming you guys were on the set about 5, maybe 6 days.
Well, good job. You may not have officially won but it looks like LJs thinks you did.
Later, BTKS

Thanks guys,
The filming was in April over 10 days, that wasn’t easy to do. In the end I had a great time, I think any of the final 3 could have been chosen to win. My downside was a crappy set of cabinets, and just couldn’t get the layout of appliances I really wanted. I wish they would have given us a stack of plywood, I would have built custom cabinets
better and faster. My guess is my performance over the whole show didn’t mean much, it was all about the kitchen.
