@mr.yuck seems easy enough but I am thinking that I will need to pick up a table saw. My pops ran the same table saw my entire life and the thing has finally become dangerous enough to retire.

 

The old man will run a tool into the grave. Broken guard - no problem. Electrical issues - jiggle the cord. 

 

The guy is ridiculous.

Lol @fat ralphymy uncle had the same chop saw. The thing was made out of solid steel and weighed like 75 lbs. It fell out of the back of the pick up truck one day and bounced down the highway for about 1000 ft. I thought that bitch was done for but he stopped and picked it up. The shit was all crooked and fucked up. He just took a hammer to it and straightened everything back out. That bitch cut straight for another 7 years before he finally got too old to tote that heavy ass bitch around! 😂

Looks good.

 

But: unless there is a receptacle to the right out of shot you are short a receptacle. You could place one in the middle to Serve both, but one can't serve both across a bowl.  Don't know your inspector, but I've seen it called here in NC.

No I didn't know that shit was code. Luckily I did put one on the other side. Not for any other reason than I didn't want to share an outlet. Spite just saved me.

Code has its place, but a lot of the required receptacles are headaches and fights with homeowners because they are getting shit they don't want and will truly never use. 

 

 

(FYI I am a residential electrician,  90% new construction, usually golf course gated community mansions.  Though I've been on my first spec house in a couple years this week and have been loving it, so fucking easy to lay out.)

So I went and picked up my vanity from the cabinet shop yesterday. When I loaded it up, I was thinking that it looked a little darker but I chalked it up to the dim lighting in the warehouse. I get home and my wife is straight like "that's not my vanity."

 

So we take it back to the cabinet shop and I take this mother fucker right into the showroom and set it down next to the floor model to compare colors.

 

IMG_20220826_152748907.thumb.jpg.3632df8a57f38860d57a7a89ce34aebc.jpg

 

This bitch comes out and had the audacity to tell me that the floor model had been sitting out in the sun and had faded a little bit and mine would do the same. 

 

I straight up told her to stop it. I informed her that I do custom paint and stain matching for a living. You know what I used to tell customers when I first got started and fucked up? That same bullshit you just told me. 

 

She instantly stopped talking and left to get the guy that works in the shop. He came out and said "whoa." He started to try and explain how the staining works and I had to just cut him off short because he was trying to weasel his way out of any responsibility. 

 

This doesn't look like that. 

 

Then this bitch pipes up again "well we started sourcing our maple from a different company and it's taking the stain differently."

 

Once again, stop it. The only thing I'm trying to hear right now is 'We're sorry. This isn't right. We are going to fix it.' 

 

They finally accepted responsibility and took the shit back. One final fuck you to their customer was when they told me that I would have to wait at the back of the line and it would be 3 weeks until they would be able to get to rebuilding and staining my doors and drawer faces. Fuckin cock suckers.

@mr.yuck that sucks - but good think you are making them get shit straight

 

Funny you are a drywall expert and @Fist 666 electrical because those are the next two phases I need to get completed for this wall removal.

 

Finishing up with moving the electrical tomorrow and the old man is going to start putting up some rock hopefully.

People are frustrating. Like would they try to kick that line of bullshit my way if they knew I was a designer or a contractor and I was building a vanity for a customer?

Dope. I couldn't tell if it was a detail cut into the ceiling with like an expansion bead or something of the nature and then you painted each side different colors. 

 

I feel like they used to do that kinda step down detail in old ritzy houses with plaster. Cool either way.

It's super cool man. I have a porch that was converted into a sun room. It's has that old bumpy plaster that looks like it has nerds sprinkled in it. My wife wants me to skim it out smooth I might try and do a similar style out there. Maybe like 3 separate trays with a ceiling fan in the middle of each. 

 

I might even give it a go with plaster. I've never done it before but I've watched several videos of guys making plaster crown molding and those ceiling medallions around lights.

That's the damn truth. I don't fuck with plaster at all. The few attempts I've made with it have been disastrous trying to do that sand swirl shit. I got a guy for that and he makes me sick at how easy he makes it look. I found this dope product called structo-lite years ago. Replaces the need for that heavy ass base coat plaster when doing repairs in 1900s houses with the wood lathe for walls. I wonder if I could use that to suss out my basic shape and then come back and smooth it out with regular plaster. 

 

What ever...

 

Need to get this bathroom done first
