    Poor Man's Tonneau cover

    After 20 years of SUV's since my last pick up truck, I went round and round on 'what to do with the bed' options from racks, toppers, tonneaus, tool boxes, etc to:

    -provide security and weather protection
    -carry & protect tools, toys, skis, bikes, gear, shovel, camping gear, coolers, Action Packers, etc
    -allow for building material, trash & recycling transport
    -carry sand bags for winter traction out of the way

    I settled on a truck box (which does fit skis up to 185cm, with customized storage forthcoming) and building a covered box for the remainder. The bottom is 1/2" rubber horse stall mats to keep skis and stuff from banging in the bed.

    The sides/structure is 3/4" OSB & rabbetted plywood panels slide on cleats. Hidden hinges are forthcoming (maybe out of Voile straps???). It is painted with Behr Extra Texture Deck Over. Now I can head in for post ski tour recovery beers without worrying about loose skis and gear in the bed.

    I'm still kicking around several bike transport options.

    As an added bonus, I'm betting the truck box will work as a solar hot box for ski waxing.

    My son has been obsessed with American Ninja Warrior for the past year or so, and for his 6th birthday all he wanted was a Warped Wall. We obliged, and he seems pretty happy with the results.

    Cool. What's in the background? I've never seen a house with flying butresses before.

    And maybe encouraging an interest in building stuff is an added bonus.

    Nice job

    Sweet Jaypow. Itís as fun to build with the kids as to enjoy the final product.

    This morning my daughter and I finished up a really small project she helped me with. Have a recessed area near the kitchen that just has an ugly old land line phone jack and I would put my keys on the small shelf but they kept falling off. If I lived in East LA I may toss a statue of the Virgin Mary there. Found a cool cast iron octopus up on Orcas last weekend and turned it into a key hang with Thing 1. She helped measure cut and stain.

    I framed the second story addition of our house. After I had the subfloor in my 3 yr old son would be up there with me while I worked. One day I found him sitting on the ground in the back yard with a chunk of 2 x 4 between his legs. He had a hammer and a 16d nail he was pounding into the wood, all the while saying "oh, shit, oh shit."

    The grill I got on discount didnít have a cabinet below. No biggie, I thought, I donít really need that anyway. Well, itís apparently good for keeping the dogs out of the drip pan, as well as keeping them from pushing the drip pan aside and pushing up the loose laid flavorizer bars which can be licked once upturned.

    So, I got some z-metal from HD & fashioned a barricade on the rear of the frame. I may yet need another row of metal. Iím going to wait and see how this first effort works out.

    ^^^^ I built that 15 years ago for my Boyz, except it was a skate ramp and sat on the long side.

    Then, they will jump over it. Bravo, Dad! Clap.

    Didn't really "make" this. Was the middle of a pallet I had from recent construction project. Cut the long ends off, sanded, added the sides from other gathered pieces of the pallet. Oiled with some 2nd gen oil with a hardener added, can't recall name. Added 1" pipe legs and fittings. I'm far from a carpenter. Click image for larger version.

    Bored again. Also don't know if I "made" it or simply had an idea and assembled it but anyway...

    Wife and I have been hunting for a console table for inside the entry door. We have been finding meh...other night I had a plan I'd hatch the next am.

    Old fence in the yard. Been in the woods a while, looks like old owners may have used it for some sort of garden. Went over and had a look and sure enough I figured I could use some of it for the console tabletop. Grabbed some worn boards and the orbital. Few hours later, few grades of paper, and some formbys Tung oil and boom. Console tabletop.

    Now the hunt for legs.

    Finally got around to the kitchen island the wife wanted. Framed it with 2x leftover from a job, old fence boards from wood shed, and bought the butcher block countertop. Open underneath but need to get electrical in before I finish shelving underneath. Click image for larger version.

    this was the solution. Should arrive tomorrow and I will assemble. They were not my first choice, but I didnt want to wait (im impatient). If I dont like the look over time its an easy swap out.

    My rickety oven door handle finally broke off.

    Upgraded to a chique 2 clove hitch model.

    It's like the blue star or hotpoint or whatever of the mountain world.

    ^Some nice work in here, but MTM, that is just totally off the charts and beautifully done. Nice work dude.

    Really like the pro touch taking it to the next level, too: 1964-2019 protective bacon grease layer(s). Need to carbon date this heirloom.



    Snoqpass... that is some seriously nice work. Saved from the dumpster/landfill

    You just can't find craftsmanship like that anymore.
