    Created out of necessity due to space requirements, this bar set sits eight people and easily fits in a hallway. I salvaged some old skids from a flooring company that used to burn them because they took up too much room. Brazilian imported wood also comes on brazilian exotic wood skids...
  8. Weather Station III & IV

    Here are some shots of Weather Stations III & IV. The one on the left is Mahagony/Ebony. The right is Jatoba/Ebony. In these versions the wings are 15 degrees inward and the tops and bottoms are symetrical. The middle space is 1 1/4" wide. Overall I think these dimensions are the most...

  13. Weather Station

    The hardware (the instruments and Galileo thermometer) was a kit from Woodcraft given to me by my daughter and son-in-law this Christmas (2007). The funny part is that I had obtained Galileo thermometers and the other instruments to make one for myself and as gifts a few years ago.

    All I' had a hot tub given to me that's around 20 years old. The tub itself is in great condition, and it has a new pump/heating unit that's less than two years old. The problem is the wooden skirt and frame have rotted and are falling apart. We almost didn't get it into the back yard before...
  15. Finishing
    Hey guys, in case you're not familiar with it, there's a saying about Texas weather: "if you don't like it, wait a bit and it'll change." That may not be the case in summer. It's hot as hell every damn day. But the past few weeks, it's been really moody. Monday, it got to right around the...
