  • On a lighter note....

    Amid all the chaos about the Ridgid brand, I won a contest run by Vermont American. Seems my Redwood deck took second place in the pro category. They sent me the prizes today...$500 worth of tools and accesories! See the links below for the deck and the prizes!

        Kelly,
        Very nice work. I particularly liked the curved corner. How did you create it?

          Thanks!

          I used the old hat method of cutting kerfs in the rim joist. Every inch I cut within 3/8" of all the way through the 2x6 Redwood. I then made a bathtub out of a tarp and soaked the board for 4 hours. Then carefully bent the board around the 4' radius curve. I used 6 screws (2 screws in 3 joists) in one end and 4 (2 screws in 2 joists) in the other. I then screwed the curve down like a toenail in from the back into the 1" strips left in between the cuts (make any sense?). A four foot strip of wood and a pencil made the cruve on the joists, then I filled it in with blocking.

          It was fun, but I broke the first board cause I only soaked it 2 hours (it was in November...40 degrees that day at best).

            Very nice work Kelly. By the way, for those of us up here in Gods Country, a 40° day in November is reason enough to head to the beach.

              Yeah, I know Dave...got a good buddy that lives near Oscoda and very close to the big lake you guys got over there...he says 40 is the middle of summer compared to the winter you guys get! You in the polar bear club???

                      Kelly,

                      I congratulate you on your winnings, but more so on your profound method and workmanship. You have the ideals drive for your workmanship, something that America has lost in making tools.

                      Your mission statement is pronounced with your work, and I know you will never loose it.

                      Hats off to you Kelly, very profound indeed.

                          Very nice Kelly!!

                          Down here 40 degrees is a real cold day. We don't head to the beach and no heating in the house. Just have to rough it amongst the palm trees.

                          Nice work!

                              I would have but I actually built the deck in 2001. Been really enjoying the power of the saw and it's mobility. How's your new 3612 doing?
