Had some sun today and decided to head out to the shop and patio to do some cleaning and straightening up some of the projects I've been working on.

Kinda felt like this



What are you guys working on in your spare time?


What projects?

We're redoing this camper. Basically turning it into a hard-sided tent palace. Axle-less suspension with 4" lift spindles, laminate hardwood flooring, possibly with heated flooring kit, and a complete rebuild of the interior to fit a queen bed. Will have electricity, microwave, heat, and AC, but took out the sink, water heater, and fridge. Will use camp stove for cooking and cooler for cooling, which will allow for more efficient use of interior space.

Also have been doing a bunch of maintenance to my truck. Working on a new mobile toolbox/workbench that will give me ample tool storage and at least 8ft of bench top and can still be moved around if needed. May add extensions to increase it to 12ft. Have some slabs of spalted maple that have been drying for a year and a half that I hope to finally make tables out of. And I need to make a gift/presentation box for my Ka-Bar that I got for Christmas in 1994 that I'm passing down to my nephew soon.

Right on guys. I've been trying to get my back patio cleaned up to turn it into a better workspace. I redid an old table and am working on the wheelbarrow. I also am working on an antique Taylor tot stroller restoring that. I have a couple cabinets, one of them I think I'm going to turn into a sandblasting cabinet.

There's more, but that's the top of the list. There's a bathroom to finish remodeling and a basement to drywall....If I live that long.

Going to buy a welder and make a new 2x72 belt grinder. Soon I need to harvest my bull. It went really well last year, and I'm running low on steak haha.

Also on the hunt for a good donor 5.3 ls to swap into my suburban. IMG_20191026_110627440_HDR.jpg
