    i guess this is sort of a home improvement. almost finished with it. i picked up a used wine barrel for my fiance's birthday to make here a wine bottle holder. all i have left to figure out is how to make the part that will actually hold the wine bottles in the bottom of the barrel.

    1CC1FF8D-AC78-4F13-A33A-B888085F305F_zps_ad4ff6e2741b178e3869ec021a96baeb056520da.jpg

    still need to clean up the metal bands a bit. this has a couple coats of clear to keep the inside that stained wine color, and 2 coats of cherry stain on the outside. i hope to have the wine glass holder mounted after work today. Once i finally have it all together, i plan to mount a small section of rope light around the top on the inside to provide some light inside the barrel. should look pretty cool!

    I have a dilemma - Below is a pic of my house. I need to replace the fascia boards on it and I'm not really sure how to reach them. The only way I think I can get a ladder to sit safely is dead center at the peak but that's not going to be much help. Looking for ideas hoping there is something I'm not thinking of. At this point I'm down to 2 options 1. Rent a cherry picker/man lift=$$ or 2. pay someone to do it that does this type of thing for a living also =$$.
    BTW - I don't really like heights so it has to be something I feel safe doing. Any ideas ?

    Or mount a 2X4 To the top of the ladder that will reach both sides of the roof short of the peak. But I think the scaffolding would be safer and easier.

    yes
    Scaffolding or man lift would be my choice. Wear a harness and you'll be relatively safe from a fall.

    I would use a rope and a harness and change it from the roof but I am used to doing this kind of work.

    I would use a manlift, but I'm used to doing this kind of work.

    P.S. I still think scaffolding is your best bet.

    I'm worried about the weight of the scaffold on the the deck.

    Put plywood down before erecting the scaffold. Or boomlift might be easier considering all the work going into the scaffolding.

    Your patio ? Scaffolding doesn't weigh that much , I would be more concerned about sinking a manlift into your lawn

    Plywood squares under the adjustable feet is what we do to protect the patio surface

    or just hire someone that knows what they are doing

    So much Yota I can't explain!
    Taking over the crazy big sister's old room. Took me two full days to empty it, and it was gross. Went from this: upu4u3e7_020243e0104af0b41e5170ae7402c2bccdf932a1.jpg
    And now I'm priming. One wall was purple, three walls blue, and black trim. Now trim will be white and walls will be tan when I can afford to get paint. gumu5upu_504183fd14d0a4310c0d4c2e6a5cbd2a2fa168cc.jpg

    Now to prime the trim.
    And Ol Stonewall Jackson is trying to figure out what's going on. Now I will be able to stare at him all day from my room.

    No patio, it's a wooden deck in front of the house.

    Nice. I made a Wine Barrel cooler. My step-son welded together the base. I have to get a recent picture showing the door. Here it is with the wine barrel on the base to check it's sturdiness. The hole actually goes down (for draining it). We used it at a party recently. I put in 60 pounds of ice. There was still ice in there two days later. One thing I did differently on the bands was to drill through the bands into each board and attach it with screws (about 200 screws in all).
