The project looks good Philip.

Curious, how do you hang all your Xacto handles on the wall?

Thanks Frank, Rick, and Carl!

Carl, I drill a small 1/8" hole in the handle base and hang them on a headless nail.

Cutting battens for the siding today plus dropped them in the stain slurry. Blending the main building down as it is overtly stained, should look better once all the windows & battens are in. No real plan just go for it! I would imagine that a building with hot drying sand would be like a sauna, hence the runs..but dang over run!

The stain is almost gone but this area is almost finished. I new batch will be mixed again based roughly on Mike Chambers water base recipe.

Stay Safe!

Philip

Exterior 1x4's are done almost. Roofing started, they are cigar wrap spanish cedar .012 thick.

Had to stop to cut more shingles during TV time. 14 per row makes for several hundred more needed.

Fantastic construction Philip, love those cedar cigar wraps for shingles. Back in the day they were easy to get everywhere and free. Now I get the grilling cedar sheets. That redneck sauna fits right in with all your other great work.
