Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

The wall has been taken out and I have decided on a blue tarp (to represent the north) and gray duct tape (to represent the south).

Bill,
If I may, I suggest you run the duct tape diagonally. That way it will brace the tarp better and hold the polygon vertical.
Hope everyone knows I am just kidding about this.

Having worked as a Joiner / Carpenter both in the workshop and on site, I admire your skills, you must have served an apprenticeship in carpentry or another related building trade.I am aware that you were a building maintenance manager, but you must have had practical experience also. :{_}: Because it looks very professional, and for my tuppence worth re strength, the sheets are best put on horizontally and the joints staggered. :{_}:

Don, those dang Christmas lights stopped production. Then I got sick. Then I had to take down the lights. Then I started working on the name tag project. Then I spent the last three days working on the old house I'm going to tear down. Then I...Uhh, what was the question again? :lol:

Don't worry Don, we definitely won't make it a project at the Bash. You can leave your claw hammer at home. :lol:

Hey Bill, don't let them raz you. If it was fast and easy to get done then it wouldn't be called a "project".

The kitchen remodel started in March and ended about Thanksgiving. I wish I had a nickel for every time someone asked "How's the kitchen coming along".

You are retired after all, what's the rush?

I won't let them get to me Doug. The nice thing about retirement is you don't have to get it all done in one day. If I get tired of one thing I just go on to another for a while. :D
