Let's talk productivity and health.  When I cut out a new door I tend to just bang a couple of dynas into the plates to be sure that it's all going to be locked down. I own a 18v Makita hammer drill and it's a little beast, but there is always that pile of concrete dust around the hole to deal with...brush, blow or just smack that dynabolt right into it and it's going airborne, and inevitably into your lungs. Silicosis is really not something you want, back in the 90s I was studying ceramics and silicosis was a big thing, air scrubbers dust extraction etc.  In construction asbestos has been the big scare of the last few  generations.  Silicosis will be next.  Bosch sent me their GBH 18v-26 with the GDE 18v-16 dust management system to try and this package is designed to prevent dust gathering around the hole and contains it in a emptiable container onboard. It has a hepa filter and is powered by the drill. It means there is a step you don't have to deal with making it a faster, more productive tool to use for this purpose.  I intend on giving the Bosch kit a good go before I do a reviewy sort of thing, but early opinions are pretty positive.  @dam_0 you had a crack what do you think?  #builtwithbosch #boschbluecrewanz  #raisethebar  #carpentry #chippy #chippylife #measuremarkcut #southgippslandchippy #southgippsland #leongatha #gatha #chippysdoeverything #finehomebuilding #keepcraftalive #squarelevelplumbstraight #victoria #aussiecarpenter #detailsmatter
Gearing up to get some doors hung. A wee bit of prep work and having the right tools can ensure snug accurate fitment of your hinges. I let the hinge sit slightly proud of the door and jamb to allow for paint. Looking forward to seeing these all on! #frothonquality #keepcraftalive
This house is about to come out of the ground! The pad is prepped, the pool is dug and the boulders are set.

New drywall is up, all popcorn is gone and a lot of repairs on these old walls being done. Looking better already! #beardedcarpentersc #oldhousecharm #drywall #keepcraftalive
Here's some terrible pictures of the windows I put together for @tricityconstruction. It's impossible for me to get decent pictures of South facing windows during the day. But it's great in person. A kitchen nook that's lit naturally all day is pretty awesome! - These windows are individual and one unit. Turned out pretty nice. Again, it's so nice when the windows themselves are set level. This is already kinda hard. - You would think that cutting all the casing the same length and pre assembling would make it easy. But not exactly. It's still easy to not line up your miters just right and end up with different lengths. - On a side note @carpentry_bymar, you mentioned materials not being perfect and having to deal with it. The windows on the sides, east and west, are combined into one unit. So the casing in the middle is tennoned and pocket screwed together. When I ripped them to size and put them back to back there was a 3/16ths gap in the middle with the ends touching. On 8 foot lengths. This casing is Poplar 1 inch by 4 inch. It still moves. - On a side note, it was the end of the day when I sized and ripped that casing down so I didn't put it together until the next morning. When I put them together they were now straight 😂🤷🏻‍♂️ - #carpentry #woodwork #woodworking #finishcarpentry #trimwork #custommade #stairguy #keepcraftalive #carpenter #windows #casing
Det här staketet byggde vi för att avgränsa trädgården från carporten och införlängningen gatan. Den följer samma stil som staketet på andra sidan uterummet. Beställaren ville ha insynsskyddet något högre närmast uterummet, varför där blev en högre del. Till utseendet en enkel lösning som fyller en god funktion. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Äger du en villa och känner att du inte riktigt hinner med allt underhåll, gå då in på vår hemsida och läs om vårt småhusservice-program.

Two of our favourite decorative brackets styles from the Durabrac range. The one on the left measures 600h x 355d x 100w, the one on the right measures 660h x 410d x 90w. A perfect finishing touch on any Hamptons inspired project. Made from Versatex Cellular PVC, they are light weight, strong and will last a lifetime. Get in touch for more information on these and any other Durabrac product. #durabrac #versatex #theversatexway #pvctrim #pvc #hamptons #traditionalbuild #keepcraftalive #windowtrim #versatexaustralia #queenslander #colonialbuild #carpentryaustralia #moderncraftsmen #architect #masterbuilder #cladding #exteriortrim  #renovation #weatherboard #verandah #porch #alfresco #handrail #pergolabracket #pergola #gazebo #rafter #terrace
These @atlas46gear magnets 🧲 are nice to have around the shop! Since most tools are metal I can slap one of these magnets on the side. Then I can put other metal tools that I used frequently at that tool on it. • • #handtoolthursday #cabinets #cabinetmaker #cabinetshop #wood #woodworking #edgebanding #festool #tools #bathroomvanity #chippylife #remodel #renovation #kitchencabinets #builder #buildersofig #keepcraftalive #themoderncraftsman #design #hgtv #finehomebuilding #carpentry #napa #hanesconstruction #california #plywood #craftsmanship #contractor

I saw some oak barbecue scrapers for sale today and they were big and clunky. So over my lunch break I made my own version.

Slowly but surely the hardie board and trim (both fiber cement) is going up! @cassiedes nailed the color choice yet again. Hopefully the rain holds off tomorrow for some more progress. @james_hardie #desimonehousebuild #diyhousebuild #desimonebuilders #finehomebuilding #keepcraftalive
Makeshift workbench for the win.  I didn't have my usual portable bench with me today and had a window to case.  Having a slide-out truck bed did the trick though.  #finishcarpentry, #finishcarpenter, #keepcraftalive, #makecraftsmanshipgreatagain, #newenglandcarpentry
A white oak top finished with teak oil for our desk that has went in under our stairs in.

Well we have been dealing with some high winds in our neighborhood the last week. The wind settled down a bit for us to crane our trusses up today! This house has 6 gables on the upper roof. The biggest coming in at 40' long and 14' tall. My video cut out a little  bit early. So we dont have footage of the big gable flying in!  #framer #framersareadyingbreed #carpentry #carpenter #customhomes #trusses #yeg #summerside #residentialconstruction #sqauresnapbuildrepeat #keepcraftalive #sqauresnapbuildrepeat #crane #dirtyhandscleanmoney  @mbradley1982 @estateconstructionltd

“Anybody can paint”. Old world craftsman and artisans had no led floodlights, no fine finish low pressure tips, no festool dust extractors or even an electric drill. I will say that technology has effected the outcome of quality in a positive way leaps and bounds of what it was. But these guys, these guys had skill and courage that is all but unseen today. It’s the grateful ones that make it, and it’s the grateful ones that have passion for excellence. I’m grateful to have had a skill taught to me, and a passion for craftsmanship and excellence in what I produce. I’m not perfect by any means but I care to learn all the time.  #perrytonspainter #paintthepanhandle  #turnerpainting #paintingcontractor #painter #perryton #texas #painting #interiorpainting #exteriorpainting #craftsman #keepcraftalive #paintlife #paintcontractor #kellymoorepaint #professionalpainter #paintingprofessional #hireaprofessional #drywall #texture #mudwork

Using the smallest biscuits on these flyscreens...... clamped with enough pressure to squeeze the glue to the surface...... cleaned up with the sander ready to fit. . Loads of ways to clamp up timber joints, it's the strength of the joint that's important when the clamps are off 🤘 . #carpentry #wood #timber #craft #keepcraftalive #friday

Sometimes things don’t go as planned, as was the case with this excavation. It was fine when we started digging but eventually took on water.  This is when the plans started to change.  We used a 30” dual wall ADS pipe to create an exterior sump pit. It extends below the footing to capture the water before it rises. Once this was installed and we got the pump running, we were able to keep the excavation dry. This left us with “muck” that didn’t want to dry. This is when the plans changed, yet again.  We then consulted further with our subcontractors, as well as an engineer. We were advised to remove the “muck” and place 6-8 inches of #6 stone. We will then build the footings on top of this new stone layer. There will also be 8” of stone under the basement floor. In addition to the stone, we will also be increasing the width of the footings and adding additional steel reinforcement in them.  We’re manning the generator 24/7 to do all we can to keep the excavation dry. Our excavation contractor @lammonbrothers have gone out of their way to help keep this project moving forward...including nights and weekends, including Easter Sunday. We owe them a big Thank You!!! Took some cool pictures last night as we were placing the stone in the hole.  #excavation #excavator #loader #stone #foundation #footings #steelreinforcing #komatsu #workinglate #newhome #newhomes #customhome #customhomes #customhomebuilder #keepcraftalive @stonecresthomesoh

Our good friends over @sherwinwilliams let us demo the @festool_usa AC36 and planex sander today! WHOAAAAA! Full disclosure, I have a cool tool addiction, BUT this is definitely a game changer. This setup carries a rather large up front cost but with almost zero dust and the speed of sanding the ROI for it is pretty short! . . We currently utilize a CT48 Hepa vac for all of our jobsite saws. These are the tools that separate us from the pack!
