What an absolute HORROR SHOW! I was a First Responder at a major Oil Tool production facility for 15 years and the pucker factor for this video is off the charts. Don’t let Stumpy Nubs watch this one.
Great looking stairs, BUT…........

15 minutes later and I’m still shaking.

Wow, fantastic results! Took me a while to get the reference to sandals and hot asphalt, good description. I certainly cringed at the thought of getting burnt by hot asphalt and I also cringed when I saw him free handing at the band saw. I can certainly see something going wrong there.

You’ll be singing a song if you splash that hot tar on your foot.

Seriously, Devin. All you saw was the bandsaw work?

ANYBODY out there care to add to the list?

(Sorry folks, but I don’t know how to get Devins remarks into that damn yellow box)

All I saw was A crew of extremely professional, experienced craftsmen doing what they do.

Hey pottz, isn’t that how Maloof uses a bandsaw?

Always wondered how they did those curves…Very cool….

Yea and dado blades should not be used, according to some.

We all have different abilities. Some shouldn’t do certain things. Doesn’t apply to everyone.

Let the professional loose to do his or her thing…

When ever someone questioned what I was doing in my profession, I’d say, just stand back and take notes…

Scary for sure. But the first thing I thought of reading the title was years ago now, Paving hot asphalt on Casino Center Blvd, right off Fremont street in Las Vegas. And a woman walks out of the 4 Queens hotel and steps right off the sidewalk into the fresh asphalt with flip flop style shoes on.
Right behind the paver, before the first roller has touched it. So it is still 4” thick and soft, so you sink right into it.
She just froze there with here drink.
Screed hand stepped off the machine and grabbed her.
Hair stands up on my neck just remembering it.

Is that Sam Madoff, the villain who created the rocking chair ponzi scheme who swindled $40 billion from investors in fraudulent rocking chairs?
