Maybe turn it into mulch at some point.... don't really have a plan for it as of yet.  I might find some straight pieces and cut for making things outside, I dunno.  Why, you have any good ideas?  @ndv


Burn it.

I normally do not do much lasing with cedar, but I like use aromatic cedar for the closet and drawers.  

 

However, cedar engraves very well.  It's really nice.  If you have any ideas, let me know?

Do you have any links to plans for such things or videos of someone making one that didn't suck.  I like projects.

 

No. I have a book or two on furniture making, somewhere. It's always been something Ive wanted to get into. Maybe when I retire. If I retire.

working on a bit of canvas painting for the first time in YEARS yesterday/today. been going thru a bit of a minimalist kick and figured one way to unload some artwork(and use up supplies..) would be to finish my unfinished things and stick them in a show. show should should be middle of april. not really a show per se, but more of a cafe where they will be on display for a month or so.

 

also, went on a nature hike. the trail was like a sheet of ice for the most part and i was traveling in sneakers when i decided to do it so it didn't last too long but was nice while it lasted. need more of that in my life.

Trenched a back yard for a French drain with my excavator. Towed it 3h north to Dallas on Friday and came back Saturday afternoon. 
 

Played legal eagle with the whole crew at the legal wall. Met new members.  
 

You guys know DFW has a Montana can delivery service a guy is running?  He will literally show up at the wall or train spot with a trunk full of every color. CC's accepted. I couldn't believe it.

awhile ago i had some paint professionally mixed so i could diy fix my cars paint job.

 

i seriously do not ever recommend doing your own detailing, it never works. i had a bad spot on the bumper that looks actually quite better, but i went overboard in some other spots like side panels/door and it went very poorly. when the sun hits spots just right it looks like i am driving a multi-colored clown vehicle.

 

so for a month or so i have been driving around town like that, head hanging in shame for fucking it up...

 

and for the past couple of days i have discovered that i can get it off w/o ruining the original paint, and already got most of the driver's side off. looking tons better.

 

what i found works is using some of those mr. clean magic eraser, wd40, and a ton of elbow grease, i mean it takes FOREVERRR, gets it back down to the original clear-coat and silver.

 

may post before/after pics after tomorrow's session..

Nice work man! 

 

We got close to painting the bus this weekend but some finishing putty was faulty and kept shrinking. Got a lot of the white and some clean on pieces. Next weekend it will be finished and it'll be time to put her together. We got photoshoots and gigs on deck so we gotta move! 

 

Fixing this kind of stuff last weekend

Up from 6am till 2am getting this thing painted and clear coated. Holy shit...it was a long fuckin day but it looks insane. I got emotional; it was a a fuckin crazy year of learning. How to build a website from scratch, how to do videography, how to navigate paying taxes on my business, learning how to weld, learning how to do body work, how to manage money, learning how to do these bartending gigs and keep everything high quality, how to keep my gf from breaking down because she had no clue if it was gonna work, spending all our money and if I could do all the things I was trying to do for the first time. 

 

Everything with our growth and gaining financial independence is based around this damn bus. For the last year it has been the center of happiness and frustration. Its here its painted the hard part is done. Now I need to put it all back together and get this bitch makin us money. We got a 4 gigs this month 3 with the bus for the first time, then a stylized photoshoot in June with some clothing line. Once this is all together we are going to be working our asses off till the season ends in like Oct I can feel it. Hopefully not working for anyone but myself next year. 

 

Had to get it down fill pinholes, resand , reprime, rewetsand again to get it back to here:

Grinded every stump on my property myself. 7 were "big" tree stumps, about 30 were smaller stumps from trees that were less than a few inches wide, or bushes.

 

Best part is I rented the grinder from Home Depot for 24 hrs. and somehow got it turned back in on time with literally 1 minute to spare. Stump grinding is horrible work to undertake and I don't recommend it, but up next is going to be jackhammering a shit ton of concrete so I shouldn't complain (yet).

I'm on the lookout for one of these myself, used of course. My trailer/vehicle can't handle the load (yet) though. Every once in a while one will pop up on craigslist accepting crypto. Need one for a job and figured it's cheaper just to buy used, use it, and sell later the way inflation is going these ays.

If you want something that is easy to work on I suggest buying an older one that doesn't have electronic over hydraulic controls and emissions garbage. 
 

All that shit makes it cost more and less reliable. Mine is a kx-41 kubota. The -2 & -3 models signify newer versions of emissions equipment. 
 

if you get an excavator and a skid steer you would be able to handle any job on your lot.

Crank seal on dirt bike. It started burning gear oil. Not a great smell and on a 2 stroke there is only one place that kind of oil can come from and burn. 
 

Picked up the replacement seal and one use items this morning for both bikes. Should be ripping it again soon.
