It's cabinet time! I have 24 feet of 1/8th inch formed bench top in three sections. It was in a shop I built up north and even though it was bolted down I told the new owner it was not included in the sale. I started on the construction with 2X4 frame work today. I'll post a few pics of the progress to morrow or the next day if I can figure out the imageshack...

Changed yet another tire on the GSA with another slated for tomorrow.
Started working on my r90/6 to r90s simulation... cleaned out the new tank, pulled the old, started on the seat mock up. Still need to paint once it's all done.

Original

What I did with that tile, marginally garage related. I cut about 200 cuts in the garage for the porch tile project:



The my friend Umberto helped my lay them:



200 square feet. It took 8 hours, but that included a lot of prep, removing the railings, cleaning and set-up. Plus, it was over 90° and done half in the sun! Needless to say I sweat more than I have in years.

But, the result was pretty good.



Tomorrow we grout, if it doesn't rain.

I think it looks pretty good for a couple of amateurs, and all the cutting around the poles.

I will have a few more photos later.

Nice!

Tile work is pretty cool. You can use an angle grinder with a cement blade or diamond blade to make almost any cut you want!

I changed my CS sprocket back to 15 T yesterday and check the sync on the TB's for the DL.

Yeah, I blew it on that one. I should have had the cement blade handy, I thought I did.
