Miter Saw Config

Tonight, Bob stopped over with Julie and helped us configure our new miter saw. We got a 12″ 60 tooth blade, which he showed us how to install.

Tuesday Night, Working in the Basement

Last night, Liz and I came home from work and went right into the basement to work. We’ve had several days off in a row, and it’s always hard to get back into the swing of things (particularly when coming home after a day of work).

Mixing Up the Wrong Cement

I had accidentally mixed up regular cement… and this set off a scramble for us to prep a metal pipe we’re intending to use as a support column. The goal was to pack it with cement, and Bob helped quickly set things up so that we could tackle this task instead.
