    Day 73: OK, all youse geniuses! Help!

    OK, folks,

    You may remember this thread http://familywoodworking.org/forums/...ad.php?t=11257 in which I described the shaky ground on which my marriage is based...

    Doorlink has said over and over "All I want for Christmas is to have my kitchen finished!"

    So, I've taken vacation, which starts today! But it's a working vacation. Chuck and others gave me the hints I needed to gain the confidence to do this. I'm gonna take lots of pictures as I go, but I'm going to need a ton of help!

    Step one: clean out the shop and get ready for a major new project.

    Task one: go get some kerosene for the heater. It's freezing out there!

    Jerry and Cody, give my regards to Sonny, and tell him this is all his fault. After all, here are his words, verbatim: "Don't let your chance to tool up drive away in a pick up truck!" That's what started this whole mess!

    Thanks,

    Bill

    Bill, what exactly have you decided to do? From your previous thread it was not clear the direction you were going and it was not part of your "tasks" or "steps" above. Are you going to raise the cabinets some or just use molding to cover the full four inches? New uppper cabinets? As you can see the options are endless. I am curious what you decided to do.

    More kerosene is on my list for today also! Looking forward to your adventure.

    OK, got some kerosene. It's still 2.99 a gallon! Oh, well.

    While I was out, James and I went to Harbor Freight. He got some rattlesnake eggs, and I got some really cheap clamps. Pics soon.

    Just took some pics of what a mess the shop is:

    It's a good thing you started cleaning your shop before it got too cold. Looks like you found one of your kids; when was the last time you saw 'em?

    Came back in for coffee and bacon. Also, took a couple pictures of the cheapo clamps.

    I wanted 4 50 inchers, but they only had three, so the fourth is only 36. $11.99 for 50", 8.99 for the 36. Cheap at half the price!

    Back to the freezing cold...

    Thanks,

    Bill

    bill, that same kid is pulling you chop saw onto the driveway.
    I remember him holding up that huge door.
    btw, freezing cold? the kid is in a tee shirt and he looks fine.

    and wheres the messy shop? If you can see the floor, the shop is neat enough.

    Don't get too organized, that will make it look like your spending more time on the shop than the kitchen.
