Drop a comment and let me know. And since I can’t resize this, just click on the link to see the whole 14 or so slide presentation.

Well here it is…
…The swing set that I spent the last three days working on, cursing at, stewing over, and bringing all my macho bravado and daring to the task of assembling its 150+ pieces is ALMOST complete. With a few more hours work it will be done, bur for now it is complete enough for Sasha to use 90% of the swing set. And that is all that she cares about.
And if you are wondering whether she liked the new swing set or not, the next two pictures should answer that question.
Ah, the many perks of being a father.
Well, if you remember my post from two or three days ago, here is what my living room used to look like…
Well here it was a day later…
And here it is today…
Now all that remains is some sanding, priming, and painting. Thank the Lord for helpful in-laws. We also thank God for our friends from church who helped knock down that hideous old bar, put up sheet rock, and tote away the left over junk.
Sorry for the blog silence. I have spent the last three days ripping out an ugly Tiki Bar from the living room of my home.
Ugly, isn’t it? That ungodly abomination was taking up quite a bit of space in my living room.
I will probably be off line for the next few days. On Monday normal blogging activities will resume.
Well, despite the frustration of using a cordless circular saw, I got a bit done on my chin-up/dip bar project. Here are the first two steps I was able to complete
Secure two 8 foot long 4X4’s. Cost at Home Depot $12.
Save yourself some time and let the guys at Home Depot cut them into two equal (four foot) pieces.
Step 2: Notch the ends of each board so that each can interlock together in a square shape
That’s where I stopped. Not because I was tired but because the battery on the cordless saw works for about ten minutes and then takes 4 hours of recharging. So this will be slow and steady over the next few weeks finishing up notching the wood.
Step 3: Coming soon.
