cleaned up my grandfather's True Temper ball-peen hammer and hung it on a new hickory handle with a couple coats of boiled linseed oil.

i want to find someone who will turn the old handle into a ink pen or two. i use a pen at my job way more than a hammer, so i think it'd be cool to make my living with something that he used to make his living for so many years.

You know you're gonna end up doing that yourself.

I bet you've even started looking into it

Putting up a 3 panel treated horse fence next week. Gonna try and post a before and after if I can remember...

Should add value to the land and help with the many horses we have. About 300 ft worth.

Thinking it'll be a full 5 days.

Finally put our 55" TV on the wall above the fireplace. Don't really use the fireplace for wood burning (will prob convert it to natural gas at some point). We have a recessed area for a TV, but the screen size was too big. So we had it sitting in front of it on a media center chest. Thought I might have difficulty finding studs with wood paneling & a fireplace/chimney to contend with, but luckily ran into no issues.

Now with no need for a TV stand, we shoved it off to the side and rearranged the furniture so our living room feels a bit more spacey than it did.

What kind of mount did you get. It's usually too steep if an angle having it above the fireplace. I mounted my TV up there with a fully articulating mount similar to the mantel mount (but much cheaper).

I built a small "addition" on to our our door HVAC apparatus to hold our paddleboards. 15' L x 3' H x 2' W. Used two by fours and some thick plywood. Need to fill in some small gaps with possibly flashing? As well as stain and maybe paint it so it doesn't rot in a year. Might post some pictures, but it looks better than I thought considering I was cutting the wood on patio chairs and bricks. I think this is the extent of what I can do with a just a drill and circular saw.

That leaves the question of what you're calling an HVAC apparatus.

Our outside HVAC unit had to be raised because we're in a flood zone. Our contractor ended up raising it higher than required to about 7 feet, creating a nice little storage area underneath. So it's about 10 feet long, four feet wide, and 7 feet high. Right now we have left over construction materials and paint...but I plan on putting in some weather barrier and storing our bikes in it at some point.

But we also have a 14' and 11'6" paddleboards. Obviously the "apparatus" wasn't long enough to hold them, so I built and attached a storage unit to it.

^ You assumed correctly. Once I put a door on this thing, I'll get a picture up. It looks better than it did halfway through. Shit was looking pretty mangled...but I made some adjustments and "straightened it out" towards the end. Still not perfect, but I don't have saw horses or anything that helps lessen the margin of area on these types of projects.

i bought my mower used from the city of Southport. it apparently spent a lot of time in sandy areas because the deck was thin in many areas and even had some holes. the city garage had already patched a few spots on it. i did some pretty extensive patching, then painted the whole thing and replaced the spindles.

part of the way through the welding: https://goo.gl/photos/rb1RkEFk8ufHef9MA

after a coat of primer and two coats of rustoleum farm and implement paint in husqvarna orange and reassembled:

Why not grind down those welds? Or do you dig the Frankenstein look?

maybe it's not clear in the pic, but those are lap joints. i didn't cut out holes and weld the patches in flush. they sit on top of the original metal. so i could never grind them completely flush.

^ It all makes sense then. I suppose if I actually think about it, it's obvious.

i had a couple similar tables (no shelves or cabinet, just 1/2" plate top, pipe legs and cross braces, and some gussets) made by a local fab shop for work and we paid over $1k each, iirc.

Having the master bath shower tiled by a professional. No pics, but just wanted to post bc I saved some $$ by DIY'ing the demo of the old shower enclosure and pan. Sadly demo work is about the extent of my DIY capabilities.

pretty much done. got a couple more additions i'm thinking about making before paint. ordered some different casters. all 4 of the new ones will swivel and have a brake. they will also be an inch or two shorter overall.

pretty happy with it.

ordered a 6" forged steel yost vise to put on it. gonna put it on a separate little piece of plate that will stick off the side of the table with a support kicked out at 45 deg to support it.

finally got some primer and paint on it, but the store only had 2 cans of what i wanted to use. gotta find some more and then i'll post final pics. added a couple hooks made from u-bolts for hanging leads or whatever, zinc coated bolts welded to two of the legs for a place to clamp my ground (taped these off before paint), and a piece of 3/4" round stock along one side for hanging clamps. also going to mount a duplex receptacle on each corner so i'll just have to plug in a single drop cord and then i can plug in grinders, portaband, etc. should be pretty sweet.
