As an ever evolving thread ive come to realize that our shops aren’t just related to our woodworking arenas but can be found outside, at the kitchen table, or on top of a couple of saw horses buried in the middle of nowhere.

Our projects might not only be made of wood but concrete, grout, paint (yea i said it), and caulk too.

Show off what you been working on around the house, in the shop or out in the yard. Feel free to crack distasteful jokes, poke fun at your buddies or make new ones. There’s really no topic here so rant and rave away like stark raving lunatic.

I hear ya ‘Stef. This is how my day started in our daily status call in the morning:

“Is that going to be enough work to fill out your day Chris?”

Well, given we’ve got 4 hours of meetings on my calendar today, it may well carry me into tomorrow.

My day stated out by finding out I had ordered a ton of stone tile with the wrong finish. At least it isn’t installed yet.
Thanks for starting a new thread Stef. The old one was getting boring.

I feel ya Mos. With the passing of Sonny here ive been short staffed on supervisors and the boys aint been right since. My phone hasnt stopped ringing with people asking about the situation. It went all the way until 9:30 last night. The kid made a lasting impression on everyone he bumped into i can tell ya that. We’re putting up a flagpole in front of the office with an engraved chunk of granite foundation stone we pulled off a job.

Glad there’s a new state of the shop. Too hard to keep up with the old. his is perfect timing as I just completed my Migration from California to Colorado! Maybe I’ll be able to keep up with this one.

State of the shop? Still to be set up. (Currently lowest on the priority list <sigh>).

I’m at the beach and all hell broke loose last night at ~11:30, the lightning and rain were more intense than anything I’ve seen in a while. Two houses down a guy forgot to pull the plug from his boat to allow the self bailing deck to self bail and this morning he had a floating (2” from non-floating) swimming pool. The right rear dock line was guitar string tight keeping that rig from going down, wasn’t doing the floating dock any favors either.

One-upped or smacked down?

Yeti, lucky that guy had it tied off. We had 0.9” the day before. Our septic system has been overloaded once before and I’m worried about it now, especially with the hurricane coming into the gulf. We’ll see though.

I like what you’ve done with the place. Seems brighter in here. Wait. What’s that smell?

SOTSA. The same as I left it before summer came on, a mess. Getting needy again, though. Minion starts kindergarten on Monday. Wif’s ultrasound was good and the boy is an energetic #4 smoother size.
