looks good
I like the 3rd one


Do you spend a lot of time unboxing all the stuff from all the cardboard?

I just did a stock kitchen for the first time in over 3 years and forgot how long it takes to un-carton all the stuff and deal with a huge pile of cardboard.
And my luck I get 2 cabinets they made a mistake on, one they extended the left style instead of the right , a wall cabinet had 2 right sides when they assembled it I guess on a Friday so the adjustable shelf holes don't line up, not even close.

Glad you are busy too

The United States Constitution does not exist to grant you rights; those rights are inherent within you. Rather it exists to frame a limited government so that those natural rights can be exercised freely.

1984 was a warning, not a guidebook!

You're right about the cardboard Slip...it's a huge PIA.
There has been a few times lately that my young apprentice has unboxed all the cabinets and dealt with all that packaging...it's like getting a head start.

On the subject of job site debris......it amazes and disgusts me how much junk we generate building these houses. Constantly filling 30 yard dumpsters with it all....along with contributions of mattresses and TV's from all the neighbors.

When my uncle built his own house in cumberland ri he brought one of his dumpsters from his company to his house that was strictly for cardboard only. He owns a recycling company in mansfield mass. He was amazed at the amount of cardboard that came out of his house.

Lamp posts

We have a 40 lot subdivision.....which has just about sold out in two years thanks to the thriving economy. Boss decided every home will have one of these pvc lamp posts in the front yard alongside the driveway. I've been building them in my shop...five at a time. After completing about 35 I think I have the build process down. Really enjoy working alone in my shop...crank up my playlist and the heater and I'm good.

Starts with 1x6 with butted corners...then a 1x5 ripped in half at 45 for the outside corner stiles. We use a PT 4x4 with a PT 1x4 1/2 slapped on the side..... it leaves a hollow chase to pull the wire. The top caps slides over the top but stays loose until final install.

Ray...I'm getting close to my full retirement age. But there will be a huge void in my life if I were to not get up every morning and go to work. Forty six years and counting! Also retirement would be more enjoyable if I had the financial wherewithal to do whatever I please, but I'm concerned that wont be the case. I do dream about building another, larger boat in the future...I'm thinking 21'er this time....have to wait and see.

Good stuff as usual Bob!!

One of the issues I've always found with cutting PVC is that the cut ends promote mold growth so much quicker, specifically if you don't paint them. That and the contract/expand issue that's hard to chase... great stuff, but it does have its issues.
I've found that "Spray & Forget" works really well with cleaning and protecting PVC. I wasn't a believer at first, as when I first applied it, it took a couple of months before I saw any results, but then it lasted a couple of years before I had to re-apply. An annual application will go a long way... almost eliminates the cleaning part as it works more of a preventative agent.

Keep up the good work! or rather GREAT work... LOL

Bob,

Curious if you deal with the Kitchen Department at Mozzone at all?
