    Why didn't you have the concrete guys set in place threaded inserts in the new pour? Wouln't that have saved a lot of work? Tell them where the locations of the bolts would be and they can even weld them to the rebar.

    Not sure if this was done on purpose, but I appreciate the way in which you set up those flags. The U.S. flag on U.S. soil should always be flown higher than any of the others, next is commonly the state flag. You could have easily put the Union Jack on the top of the board its currently on, but you did not. It shows a great amount of respect. I had friends come home with that flag draped over their thank you.

  • Collin Smith

    Dude it looks cold where you're at. Why dump the wood? Shoulda ordered up a keg of beer and burned the wood in a huge bonfire with your neighbors to celebrate your stuff getting there. At least that's what we would've done in my neck of the woods. (Except here in nanny state of CA we probably would have gotten a ticket for burning real wood on a "non-burn day" and possibly for drunk in public...but it wold have been worth it!)

  • BoShek
    BoShek 5 days ago

    I don't understand why so many people have an issue with him disposing of the pallet at the landfill. They are big, they are cumbersome, they are trying to clean up and organize their metal shop. They are not woodworkers, they are not wood recyclers. If you want the big annoying pallet out of your workshop.......that is one way to do it. You may have done it differently if it was your shop, but it isn't. There is nothing wrong with how they got rid of it. In fact, I commend them for dealing with it properly instead of just tossing it in the woods or on the side of the road for someone else to deal with.........many people would just do that.
