Still has coal in the basement to feed that boiler

2018-09-12 21:15:58 UTC  

Someone still lives there?

2018-09-12 21:49:14 UTC  

Not right now, it's being restored to the original lay out. It was cut up into apartments sometime in the 70s.

@RevStench ky ie chapter house? We need that place.

2018-09-13 01:08:05 UTC  

Haha I wish. It's a beautiful place, has a private parking lot, a wall haha. 4 stories and a massive cellar that doesn't get wet. Hahaha it would be perfect.

2018-09-18 13:53:24 UTC  

I love these little windows. 9in Knock off Klein's haha for size.

Anyone here know anything about repairing roof leaks? It's raining hard where I live and rain is leaking through roof by the chimney.

2018-10-03 23:51:56 UTC  

It's the flashing. When it drys out get up there with some metal sealant and some matching color trim screws and nail it in the mortar. Use a lot of sealant, smear it around.

It could be the flashing, you'll have to look at it. But if it's coming in at the chimney it's most likely the flashing.

@Rick if you get up there get some pics if you have any questions.

2018-10-08 22:05:24 UTC  

I sent you a response in the general channel, but I missed the part about the chimney. The sealant should still work though and then like rev said you should take a look at the metal flashing. @Rick

“How I took apart a coat hanger”

2018-10-31 22:45:20 UTC  

Gotta work with your hands sometimes. Great job

2018-11-01 20:34:39 UTC  

Looks nice dude. @Envian

2018-11-01 20:35:23 UTC  

Here's some custom casement windows I made. They still need to be cleaned.

2018-11-01 20:36:45 UTC  

We're also restoring a 1972 Airstream camper.
Here's a little shelf for the bathroom.

Ooh that looks nice. What kind of finish do you like to use? I’ve been using a matte polyurethane. I plan to make two matching nightstands sometime soon as well as a chest that sits at the end of the bed. I want to give them a glossy finish, so I won’t be using the poly (don’t like the way glossy poly looks). Any suggestions?

2018-11-03 19:54:22 UTC  

I used Helmsman water based poly on that, it's not real glossy but you can see it.
Usually I use high gloss poly because it protects better. And people like that high gloss look.

I hate working on homemade scaffolding.

2018-11-07 23:27:17 UTC  

Especially in a proper turret.

2018-11-07 23:28:08 UTC  

It's only a little over 20ft, but falling would hurt hahaha

2018-11-21 06:42:51 UTC  

A pretty large chest I made to sit at the bottom of my bed. Should look really nice when I stain /finish it

2018-11-21 06:44:55 UTC  

The hinges for the lid and the handles haven’t arrived yet either, but I found some really nice hinges hat allow the lid to over hang on the back

2018-11-21 14:21:10 UTC  

Looks nice bro. If you're ever looking for hardware here's where I buy a lot of stuff from.

2018-11-21 17:48:04 UTC  

Nice they have some cool bail pulls on there. Wish I would have known before I bought the ones I did so I could have more choices. Either way the ones I got are fine though I guess.

2018-11-21 19:02:02 UTC  

Haha you could always swap it out later. Nice work though bro.

2018-11-21 21:20:09 UTC  

Thank you.

2018-11-21 21:21:06 UTC  

That’s true. I’ll see how it looks before I install it and return it if I don’t like it

2018-11-24 21:23:33 UTC  

@Envian Nice work. Post photos after you stain it please, they always look so good after being stained.

2018-11-25 22:12:50 UTC  

@Sonic thanks, 😄 will do!

2018-11-26 01:14:52 UTC  

@Envian Thats beautiful

Here’s my latest project. Just a simple stand for my desk
