Shortages of money for tape can be a factor. I always keep on the lookout for discarded rolls of partially used tape while digging through the construction rubble. A lot of contractors leave behind all different kinds of tape. Ductape (not very paintable but strong as hell!) is always in abundance around tract home sites. The tape the stucco lathers use around here to seal their 3/4" foam board is THE BEST for our intended application. It is pretty much a veneer with adhesive and it paints just like cardboard.
I like creating with my hands. I especially enjoy creating useful items out of wood. Unfortunately, my self-designed and self-built garage 6 X 3 foot workbench has a tendency to become littered with miscellaneous "stuff", and I find myself at my wit's end attempting to build projects on a piece of plywood strung across two folding sawhorses. Not ideal, I will agree. I do appreciate the convenience of being able to take down and put away the components of my makeshift working surface. What I don't like is that the working surface is not that stable and requires a separate set of clamps to hold the working top to the sawhorses.
Orchard Supply to the rescue once again. The concrete molds have been in stock there forever. So get a walkway mold and align it with on one side or the other of your painted sheet. It's easiest to use a colored pencil similar in color to the color of your base coat. This makes it not so noticeable and you don't always stay within the lines so much, right kids? I tried using a Sharpie on one sheet and I hated myself for all the dark, heavy black lines left to cover. Using the mold upside down, trace the contour of the stones out onto the cardboard. Now, lightly scribe the two outside flanges where the pattern forms a "v" on one side and an "a" on the other side made by the mold's outside shape. These will be the keys to line up the next areas to be scribed since there's no concrete to line up the mold with again and the mold shape itself makes it hard the judge the distance from the last stone to the next to keep the mortar thickness the same. Once I can see the rocks I can't help but miss the ass in my face....yummy.
Are you familiar with the trucks which are built simply to be a moving bill board? Do they work? They would not exist if they did not work! How can you get attention, and display a large sign while riding your motorcycle? Find out! So how are you going to get a big sign on your motorcycle? First, you need a hitch. Find one on eBay for about $200. Or, check with your local motorcycle mechanic. Get the hitch on, and you're ready to tow!
A lot of people I read user experiences on said that Northern Tool has imports that are the same quality as Harbor Freight, but they do not offer nothing but imports. People who want American made tools will have access to them. American made tools are sold next to the ones that have been imported. Just expect to pay a little bit more in this case.
The Kitchen Back Splash. Do it yourself. Hi My name is Bill and I have taught ceramic tile installation to the local community college for several years. I will attempt to do this again with my only tool being words. First preparation is the biggest part of the project. Laying out where the tile will go. This is a process of measuring what is available. Measure the available wall space. Then set 4 tile side by side like they will look on the wall. Measure the total amount of linear distance they will take up. Why? Well how you transition back to the wall from the tile is one of the most critical parts to how it looks. A full piece out at the counter or breakfast nook is preferable to a very thin piece with a cut edge right next to the dinner's eye level. Also you will need to plan one inch for the Bull nose tile. This is the tile that has a glazed transition back to the wall surface. Go into Lowes and ask some questions or visit Home despot online for some video trainings.
