Day 1 At Ground Zero ๐Ÿ˜‰
~
Hey yโ€™all ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ,
Cracked out to Gisbourne this mornin, right after take n the young bloke to school ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ headed off to the workshop, loaded up & shoot out to site! & straight off the Bat! Rock up & all the cabinets I created were stacked up right where the flibin kitchen was going....... ๐Ÿ˜‘ only the third time Iโ€™ve told the delivery boys! But had the client out to give me a hand & clear out the room! & I listened to yโ€™all that cracked out & voted on what level I should use ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ Stabila came out ontop for this one! ๐Ÿ˜… even though I find the Sola levels quicker to use, these Stabila levels are accurate but I find that the bubble in the float is tiny & I keep going back staring into the float & making a judgment call wether the bubble is smack bang right down the guts of the beats! But โ˜๐Ÿผ thatโ€™s ok ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ I asked the Question, Got the Answer & Listened ๐Ÿ˜‰,
~
Also on other news ๐Ÿ˜ฑ FINALLY! Iโ€™ve got a pack of River Redgum heading out to a depot in Melbourne! Should be right for pickup come Friday!!!! Making a ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ yeah ๐Ÿ˜ˆ youโ€™ll just have to wait till I Crack that one out later on, I am really excited about it though as I love River Redgum ๐Ÿ˜ one of my favourite Australian Timbers ๐Ÿ’• & Iโ€™ve also got a heap of extra lengths racking up too! For something a little special for the missus โค๏ธ Iโ€™ve been soo busy making beautiful pieces for my clients that Iโ€™ve booked a couple of pieces to create for my wife..... I think itโ€™s only fair as sheโ€™s been waiting long enough ๐Ÿ˜˜

Customisation Of A Sink Cabinet So..... You Think I #nailedit ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿผ
~
Evening Yโ€™all โœŠ๐Ÿผ
Will ya have a crack at this! This is something that I started doing with all my custom designed kitchens, I customise the arse out of the sink cabinet to make it more practical than useless! As Iโ€™m sure yโ€™all know..... the sink cabinet is about as useful as tits on a bull! So after I fit it all off, & the plumbing is smashed in! I head back, set out a map of the cabinet & make it work for the client ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ but! On top of this!!
Iโ€™m freakin Delighted to Crack this one out!! This week..... ๐Ÿ—ฃ๏ธYES This week Iโ€™m Crackin Back to some normality ๐Ÿ˜ฑ & Iโ€™m soo Excited ๐Ÿ˜† I donโ€™t know how many of Yaโ€™s have had the luxury to keep running a business along with running a household but you know..... I thought it was hard when I was in my 3 year journey after my car accident, breaking my spine, shattering some vertebrae, wedge spinal fractures, & yeah it took me 3-4months to learn how to walk again! But I just must have grown a bit, I found this a lot more difficult to the point that there is a grown appreciation towards my wife, we get so used to the roles we play that when one of us it taken out of the picture life just naturally gets harder! My wife plays a big part in my life & I am so overly excited that she is getting around & things around here can get back to normal ๐Ÿ’•, probably on my part, dealing with my chronic pain on top of everything, well... it nearly took me down.

Something Satisfyingly Sticky About This ๐Ÿคช
~
Evening Yโ€™all โœŠ๐Ÿผ,
This...... this right here is the Spray on adhesive I use to stick on all my 1mm ABS edging, & by golly is she tough! Iโ€™m pressing down at about 20kgโ€™s before she starts to give way ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ, I find this a lot more appealing than using some heat on edge or iron ๐Ÿคข, only done that for the first few years in my apprenticeship & after a couple of hundred metres ๐Ÿคช you go loco ๐Ÿ˜œ.
~
Well my missus is cruisin alright ๐Ÿ’• healing up like a trooper! Iโ€™m slowly looking to crackin back into it! Looking forward to getting a couple jobs finished off & crackin on!!
But for now..... Yโ€™all be good & Iโ€™ll catch Ya in the next 1 โœŒ๐Ÿผ

Give That A Good Ol Gander ๐Ÿ˜‰
~
Hey Yโ€™all ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ,
Thought Iโ€™d move on & show Yaโ€™s how this job is cruisin along ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ sheโ€™s not quite the big finished reveal but........ well you get the idea ๐Ÿ˜‰ & apart from doing what I do I really enjoy showing Yaโ€™s the progress of the piece Iโ€™m working on ๐Ÿ’•, Well she was a beaut one today! Cracked out to this job & put the tunes on & pushed hard! Absolutely wreaked when I threw the bulkheads up! But she needs to be done! All I have left with this one is cutting down a drawer, customising the sink cabinet, fitting the cornice ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ & Iโ€™m ๐Ÿ—ฃ๏ธ Done โœ… then everything else is an extra ๐Ÿป but.......... I still have one more job to crack on with before I can have a little break & give the family some focus!!! Got one more day out on this job but Iโ€™ll crack that can open next week! Tomorrow I work of the last job before Iโ€™m off for a bit ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ & I tell ya what ๐Ÿ˜ฌ I thought the Christmas rush was a lot! The amount of pressure Iโ€™ve placed on myself to complete is astronomical ๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿผ hey whoโ€™da thought I could spell that ๐Ÿ˜‚ but she needs to be done or Iโ€™m more than buggered when I get back!

Grab A Pen & Paper ๐Ÿ“ You Might Want To Take Notes ๐Ÿ˜ˆ
~
Evening Yโ€™all ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ,
Howโ€™s everyone holdin on for a hump day! So thought Iโ€™d crack on & give Yaโ€™s a good ol gander at how I deal with MDF bulk heads ๐Ÿ˜†, now rule of thumb is if you have a return, your best to mitre the beast! Cause it will always move on you if you just simply butt & screw a square edge ๐Ÿ˜ฌ, this one in particular is a little custom, thought of a couple of different ways to sort her out & this one by far was the most entertaining! Love me a challenge...... even a simple 22.5 deg one like this.....yeahhh ๐Ÿ˜… it wasnโ€™t a challenge I was cruisin in auto pilot..... buut anywho! Using masking tape is by far the simplest way to help hold your mitres tight ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ, now you can see that I run a piece of mask along the length of the join, then a second piece along the width, one helps hold the join together & the other helps stabilise & add pressure ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ, something like this I tend to just glue & rarely nail or screw just due to its size but with large pieces Iโ€™ll definitely smash out some nails to help hold it all together๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ, & all & all........ the tape acts as a 3rd hand & clamping mech.
So how do you do it โœŠ๐Ÿผ just with water ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ
~
But for now ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ yโ€™all be good & Iโ€™ll catch Ya ๐Ÿ˜‰ in the next one โœŒ๐Ÿผ

So today, I was out onsite pushing through this job, & I donโ€™t know about you BUT! Iโ€™ve had this happen to me about 4 times now, basically Theo oven was 5mm larger than the specification sheet for install ๐Ÿ˜ญ I was absolutely devastated she was a quick fix, pulled the cabinet out & just dribbled the floor to suit! I have had it happen with sinks, range hoods & cooktops but never...... & I mean never have I had it happen to an oven before ๐Ÿ™„ 5 freakin mil!
But for this Cracka! ~

Today ๐Ÿ˜‰ she was a busy day! Picked up the missus from hospital this morning ๐Ÿ’• just super glad to have the girl home. Then I got her setup at home, & ducked out for a few hours finishing off the kitchen Iโ€™m installing, I worked it out that Natalieโ€™s dad would be here. But all going well this kitchen should be just about finished tomorrow just have a couple more cabinets to fit along with some kickers & bulkheads ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ then itโ€™s just one more job to get done before I can just focus on helping out at home ๐Ÿ’—....... cause atm trying to do it all is tiring!

So today was mental! Took the missus out to the hospital for her hysterectomy, first up she needed to get a stab for her bloods then we went off to the base & checked in, we waited.............. and waited....... aaand then I got hungry & had to buffer off to grab a feed ๐Ÿคค & raced back to the hospital so I could wish her luck as she walked in ๐Ÿ’• then I just walked around Ballarat, made a tone of phone calls & I grabbed a movie for my 3 little boys, does anyone remember Ferdinand! ๐Ÿคฉ by this time, she was clickin past 5pm & I was gettin tired from all my walkin ๐Ÿ˜‚ & just went back in & waited for my bird to roll in ๐Ÿ’• she rocked up & surgery went well sheโ€™s doped up & got the munchies bad! But I needed to leave her in the care of the nurse & get to my boys, we sat & watched half the movie ๐ŸŽฅ then they started acting like dummies so me knowing that they were over tired ๐Ÿ˜‘ it was off to bed for them! There down & out for the count! The next few are doing to be next level as I need to be a dad first & then work in the business...... donโ€™t know how Iโ€™m going to go but Iโ€™ll push as hard as I can โค๏ธ
Hope Yaโ€™s have a great night, be good & Iโ€™ll catch Yaโ€™s on the next one โœŒ๐Ÿผ

So today......was sh*t..... not just sh*t...... but really sh*t, so to start this story I have to take Yaโ€™s back....... (insert time travel music) ๐Ÿค” donโ€™t know why but letโ€™s Crack it out to some AC/DC ๐Ÿ˜‰ & well really..... it was cold! My main supplier had a machine break down so I basically sorted it out to another company using my suppliers product ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ @polytec ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰ so in my request to getting the tops made, I didnโ€™t want any joints made in the tops & the main reason is they would have taken me about 30mins per joint & every top would have been over size, allowing me to make the fit perfect ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ but the tops were made, with joints &..... & hang on it gets bloody better ๐Ÿฅƒ all the joints were 1.5mm out of square in the length & .5mm out of square in the Thickness ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ so I did make the call to the company & went off like a rocket ๐Ÿš€ & it took me the rest of the day, to get them right ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ done a Rippa job, & got through it, Iโ€™m a day behind because of it but sheโ€™s sorted ๐Ÿป I also got some more finish plastering done ready for the next day Iโ€™m out there! Which wonโ€™t be till Satdy โœŠ๐Ÿผ but tomorrow will be a bit crazy, wife goes in for her opp so fingers crossed ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿผ I will hopefully crack something out tomorrow ๐Ÿ’•
Until then..... Catch Ya โœŒ๐Ÿผ
