Ok Ok excuses excuses
This is my excuse post.
I've pretty much gotten over my Russian Death Disease with the exception of coughing up my lungs when I move too much or too fast. So I decided to hit the drill and work on the bar again.
I am using 2X4s because that is what I had laying around. I know I should have used something smaller but with the height Mario requested I think 2X4s might have been a good idea.
They are not top grade and there is a curve in them which makes it unable to right.
I think it will do for government work.
I have not sunk the screw because I am lazy.
Heck you're gettin' this for free so I can be lazy.
Anyway, this afternoon I coughed louder than my CDs (lounge lizard music the only appropriate bar creating music there is), chased the dog who I let escape, and pounded the crap out of my middle finger.
I have decided that's enough for one day.
Aside from the juvenile delight of showing my sister my wound, I produced the counter braces, figured out I need another inch off the gate, and attached all but one of the shelf strong-ties ... I seem to be missing one.
Not much but that includes the puzzle time trying to figure out which numbered piece went where and why those two were short but not short enough AND drinking 3 beers.
