Whilst waiting for warm rain to stop, so I can continue painting a deck, here's some picks of what I've been doing since the 1st week in July...
We bought one of these
Hmmm, why can i only post one photo...?
Then i needed to build a hifi rack
And a 2.5m x 4.0m wall unit
And excavate, concrete & paint a carport & driveway
And have the backyard and 20m of gardens removed
And have a 6.0 x 6.0m shed built, and line it with ply, and paint the floor, and have it wired to its own power sub board, and build a walk-up bar, and erect a 3.0 x 3.0m suspended ceiling (mezanine)
And seal large concrete area (I hate some concreters)
And lay 100m2 of new lawn (and all it entails)
And install a ducted aircon
And have a 25m high tree removed, using an 80 tonne crane (8.5 tonne of dry wood)
Then remove and repair a small part of a 105 year old house and deck.
Apart from that, its been a walk in the park.
I hope my room isn't full of tools and timber !!
What's a walk-up bar ? and what would be an alternative ?
Less palm trees? Next vacation? After you've had a rest
a walk-up bar may also be called a "flash looking" bench.
I really like the palm trees!
So, I needed somewhere to store my records.
Old houses like this weren't built with storage in mind. People didn't have excesses, like possessions...
So I had a blank wall...
Then I assisted a joiner cut up $$$ worth of timber
Then I built some shelves with hand tools on the front verandah, coz I didn't have a shed yet... I didn't make the timber doors, but i did hange them ;)
I even made a drawer, coz I could...
Errr..where's the record player?
Damn fine shelves by the way.
I have to make some drawers too.
Nice work Gra-Gra, is that drawer dove-tailed ?
Awesomely good Graham!!
Excellent work Graham B-)
Thanks for the compliments guys.
The plan was to ensure the shelves fitted the style of the 105 year old house, not look like some contemporary melamine add-on (yuk).
The "record player" is in the next room. This room is where the records etc are kept.
It is actually in the hidden hi-fi rack I had to build.
All other attempts at hi-fi racks looked ridiculous in the late Victorian room.
I finally found somewhere to put my stereo stuff...
But I had to build an insert
Turntable shelf is on lock-in/lock-out ball bearing slides
Very very nice G - well done
Thanks Paul :D
I FINALLY got around to installing speakers in my shed.
Also installed some stereo thingys in another bench & hi-fi rack I made.
Walk-up bar is a 50mm slab of blackbutt I machined and finished. :D
Looking gooooood ,Gee :)
