I remodeled a bathroom.  Soup to nuts.  I put in a wall and door, layed down subfloor, tiled the floor and walls, built a vanity from scratch (out of beetle-kill pine — it came out beautiful, if I do say), built a medicine chest, installed sink, faucet, toilet, fixtures…

I took it from plain ugly to totally beautiful.  It was a big job. 


These are the paperback shelves I just made a few weeks back for my parents’ study.  Behind and around them you can see the corners of the paneling, trim, and shelves I put in last year.  Lots of 2-axis mitres invlolved.


And these are the shelves I did last year, for the hardbacks.  Ignore the ugly ladder-hole in the foreground.  A real staircase is my Dad’s next project.Impressive portfolio?  I’ll be a finish carpenter before I’m a Finnish carpenter.  nyuk.
