Winter Project Update

So, as some of you blog followers know, I found this old tank behind Craig Knott’s house, and I  wanted to build something out of it. So here is an update. I’ll probably post a final Before and After photo once I get it painted and looking decent. It’s rough right now. But it’ll get there.

I found some scrap wire weave in the junk pile, so I cut a circle out.

image

This was the updated hinge, I wanted something I could easily pull out to get the door off.

image

Here is the door handle, I built from a piece of pipe, and an old truck spring.
image

Here is the old truck exhaust, complete with a chrome tip (that needs shined up.)

image

Here is the hole we cut with the plasma cutter to fit the truck exhaust.

image

After we got it all welded in and set up, we decided to give it a trial run. so we got a fire started in it.

image

It still needs sanded, cleaned, and painted, but its defiantly a start. should be good to cook on by June with some minor tweaks.

image

 

Until next time.

I think that catches me up for the past month. hopefully it doesn’t take me this long to post again.

Wedding Day 12*1*12

So, after a 2 1/2 year engagement, Britt and I finally tied the knot on December 1st. I think/hope everybody had a good time. and as I suspected, 2 kegs was not going to be enough. but here are some of the pictures from a busy day. Almost all the stuff you will see, decorations wise, Britt made. All the center pieces, the cake topper, the smores bar, etc etc. Lol, and Everything is for sale!!!

One of the center pieces Britt made. She did such a great job with all of them, but this is my favorite.

Our Cake Lady did an absolutely fantastic job. We had about 7 different kinds of cake too. Complete with our Homemade Penguin Toppers. I made the groom, Britt made the Bride.

Dads Christmas present

So for Dad’s Christmas present, I figured I’d build him something for his revamped/uncluttered Garage. And beings that we are a beer drinking family, I figured I could build him a Cap collage.

First I grabbed some old pieces of wood that I found in his garage when I cleaned it out a month or so ago. Then I painted “Jeff’s Garage” on it.

image

Then I had to find a 1 1/8″ hole saw. Which was tough to find in a set without buying a brand new one. (I ended up borrowing one from Britt’s dad). So I used Grandpa Chuck’s drill press to ensure even/level holes.

 
image

image

Then Britt and I carefully placed the 102 caps needed to fill every hole.
image

Then came the hardest part. making the pry-off caps fit. See when you pry off the caps with an opener, it bends the metal so the cap can come free. so I took a pair of plyers and bent them back into shape the best I could….it sucked.
image

Then Britt and I started glueing them in.image

Then the Finished Product.
image

image

The last step will be to shine up the Caps

Merry Christmas Dad.

Dad’s Table

Dad needed a new dining room table, and we actually had an old butcher’s block table in the garage (that your’s truely cleaned out a few weeks back). So we decided to strip the paint off the old thing, and stain it a natural wood color. So since I’m closer to Lewiston, I took the table to my grandparents in Clarkston so I could work on it after work with some help/advice from my Grandpa Chuck.

Here’s the table (Before). Ugly, I know.
image

Then we (That’s Grandpa Chuck) took it apart so we could strip everything properly.
image

Then we started by stripping one of the legs. expsoing some darn good looking wood. It should stain up nicely.
image

Then we stripped the table top, and threw some pre-stain on it to help seal up some of the cracks, and prep the wood.
image

image

Then we started staining. At first I thought it was going to be too dark. but it turned out pretty good. We stained the legs black so we could have black chairs.
image

After it dried we threw on a clear coat, and started putting it back together. We got all new hardware for it. Bolts/screws/etc.
image

image

And here it is in Dad’s house. Just in time for Thanksgiving dinner.
