Long Mont Velo Build

Paul Andersen (my wife's cousin actually), is a pretty serious bike rider. What happens when you are serious about something? Well, at some point you open you're own shop/store.


Ultimately, this was the road that Paul and his wife Trudee would take in their lives together. That is where I come in. They asked me to do the build for their shop/store. I said yes without hesitation, of course. The build will include a fitting room, customer service counter area, storage shelves, workbenches, and whatever else Paul can think of. I will be doing the whole build for them which includes framing, drywall, texture, paint, work benches, custom floating bike shelves, and odd/ends.


Garden Potting Bench

Mother's Day was awesome this year for my wife, Angela. Last year we put in a garden and she has wanted a potting bench. I've put it off, not on purpose but because we had other things that we were doing and trying to get done. However, this year she was out of town for Mother's Day and I thought, I should build that thing.


I quickly did a scan of materials I had on hand and made a short list of some things to get from Home Depot. I went to Home Depot and picked up the items I needed.


Here is my materials list:
01: 4 - 4" by 4" Cedar Posts
02: 5 - 2" by 4" Cedar Boards
03: Old Fence Pickets (already had on hand)
04: One gallon of Hazelnut Paint
05: 2 and 1/2" bolts (already had on hand)
06: Metal decrative brackets (already had on hand)

Zombie Kong Skull

Ok, my goal is to create a Zombie Kong, which basically is a King Kong Zombie type thing. It originally started out as the Pankot Palace Skull from "Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom" but as you will see, it isn't even close.


Several people who have seen this thing have asked why I chose an ape, lol. So, after reconsidering my options with this thing, trash it or keep it, I thought I'd keep it and rebrand it and call it a success.


They Are:

01. 2x2 Regular Construction Grade Material

02. A thin padding for bulk where I need it

03. Chicken Wire (1"x2'x25')

04. 1" Screws

05. 1/2" Staples

06. 5 Gallons of Drywall Mud
