We are already gearing up to go and spend a week helping our tornado victims.  After the major cleanup is completed, there will be a huge rebuilding effort.

Elderly couple  lives in an  older mobile home. Kitchen floor (plywood) worn just about all the way through in a couple of places. Grumpy old men had a weekend work party. Used some of my 1X4 oak lumber and my shop to make a bunch of tongue and groove flooring. Stapled it down right over the plywood. Finished with satin poly. Pic after sanding, before finish applied.

 



Another similar project is still in the planning stage.

Grumpy old men are at it again. Neighbor bought a new tractor. No place to keep it under cover, too busy working day job to build something. Grump old men to the rescue.

Grumpy's at it again. Cutting bean sticks in the middle of winter.

 



As usual, there's a story here.

83 year old widow lady calls me up asking if I have any bean sticks, needs some NOW.
What's the hurry, it's middle of the winter. She cultivates the ground and puts the sticks in place the first of Feb, then plants the beans next to the poles on good friday. That way, she doesn't have to take time off from the rest of the garden when the beans start running, the sticks are already there. She lives alone and raises a huge vegatable garden and supports herself by selling produce out of the back of a pickup truck

Work party, donated logs...bunch of 5/4 X 8ft pine sticks.

Good job Piney.  Our group hasn't decided where our next project will be, but I look forward to it each year.

The grumpy ole men ain't dead yet, although 2 of the original gang have passed on.  Bunch of us got together today and fixed up a small house for an elderly widow down the road a ways. House was built on concrete piers which had sunk in the soil. Walking across the floor in the house was about like trying to walk on a trampoline. We used a bunch of hardwood wedges (cut on my bandmill) to force the foundations back level, then ran 2 sets of 8X8 cypress beams the full length of the house. These were set up on new concrete piers. Floor is now level and plenty firm..She treated the whole crew (seven of us) with a fantastic lunch of home-made beef stew over rice, speckled butter beans cooked with bacon, green beans, delish home-made rolls, lemon pudding, and all the sweet tea we could drink...

It was too dark under there to get any decent pictures, and I was too busy stuffing my face to get pictures of the lunch. Besides, if I had stopped to take pics, that bunch of rednecks would have eaten it all before I got to the table... ;D

You're a good man Pineywoods. Very nice that you guys do this kind of stuff. I wish I knew of a crew locally that does this. I'd join up. Sometimes a person just needs to do something for their fellowman and not have dollar signs attached to the act.

How old you gotta be to qualify as 'Grumpy'? My wife says I am sometimes when I get back in and sends me to the shop for a fix. Usally iron or wood and I'm almost back to normal.

Oh, I just boxed in a large room so a new mother would have a spare bedroom for her son when the new baby arrived. Old house and not a plumb wall around. Does this help me make the team?
