The conduit and piping is plumbing for the pool in going to have to maintain at some stage, we've also got about 7000 litres of water tanks to go on the slab as well.

Looks so much smaller with one trailer and my second set of wheels in it already...

Currently looking for affordable C/D ply to line it with, once the builder sorts out a leak in one of the corners where they cut the sheets too short by about a half inch

I built a smoker out of beer barrels. I want to leave it outside permanently so I made it all stainless. Well it has wood and I machined some alloy for the handles but it should stand the test of time  ;D
Just a side note, the blackwood on the handles is from a coffee table I built in high school in 1983 that's been floating around the family all this time!!

I wanted an outdoor box to put some cooking stuff etc in so after looking at the usual commercially available items and being a cheapskate I slapped one together using materials that were laying around the boneyard  8) Cost $0......stain I put on it to make it look more timberish $18!!

Fitted new rear speakers to the 130. Mounting blocks and speaker frames were shaped by hand to fit. Very happy with the result.

an outdoor box

Looks great (& so does the smoker!) & certainly isn't going to blow away in a sudden gust of wind! ;D

Started on a dog door out through one of the back french doors. I was originally going to purchase a ready made one from a retailer, but the sizes don’t suit the door. I removed a pane of glass and secured a ‘mud flap’ in its place. I will need to do a bit more from the security point of view, but functionally this works a treat. The older of the two puppies can manage the door quite well, while the younger hasn’t the height, yet, to knock the flap open with her forehead rather than being put off by trying to use her sensitive nose for the job.

Quad removed on outside of door with glass still in place. I was hoping this would be simple, but the glass had been ‘secured’ and wouldn’t budge. Finished up breaking the pane trying to remove it, then got the multi tool out and cut away the moulding and glass.


Just need to finish off with some stain and a security flap on the inside.
