I got this idea from The boss / Jeff. I like his blade display on MR Truck and thats where I came up with this. A buddy split the blade in half with his plasma cutter and drilled holes.

I put it up on the doors this morning and I think it looks pretty good.

Started on the last wall this afternoon....the back wall.   smiley_smash   Then we'll run wire for lights and fan before the interior wall goes up.
Still hotter than the dickens in the South.  smiley_sun

Around here the carpenter bees would gather behind that sawblade and bore their egg holes. They know the woodpeckers couldn't get at them and they would have a chance for the next generation to survive. Then you would have a wall full of holes. I had an old CASE tractor sign on the north wall of my shop; musta had fifty holes in the wall when I took the sign down to stain the building. Now I've got a bunch of small windows in the board & batten since the woodpeckers had lunch...............

Good idea!!
Now you need 3 chunks of wood and a wooden checker board. One to put the board on and 2 to sit on.

Moving slow but steady because of the heat.

I have now got the back wall framed in.


 

......and the board and baton up. The fan really sucks the heat out thank goodness.



 

 

I then took a break from building and run the underground power.
tired of drop cords.



 

 

Got the wire and conduit covered and put down fresh gravel. Thats Kirk in the ditch.  :D



 

Then went back inside and decided on Hickory paneling for the upper part of the wall.
Each board was dry and was oiled to make the grain pop.



 

The wheels in my head are still turning on what design next.
Some trim to do and will be starting on the bottom of the wall and the fireplace.

More to come.

While I got you here.....check this pic out.  :D :D :D

Looks great.  When we go traveling in that direction, I want to see the Billy Graham Library and the Poston showroom.
