Building a Corner Shelf and Counter ExtensionsΒ 

The cabin I built is rustic to the degree of reclaimed lumber, timber, roofing, doors n windows.  All near 100 yr mark & comprises 85% of the construction work.

From fall of 2009 into winter 2010 when I began this habitat, to now winter of 2017 – I’ve worked over 24,000 hours to create my home, garage & attached outbuildings to the garage, fencing & much etc.

It’s a never ending, ongoing project; til I die.

Yes – I am a woman; of years.  75  February 2018…

2011/12

Just for fun – here is a detail of a simple corner shelf above my galley range.  I started this 12.12.17 – took a total of 6 hrs.

And one beer…😊

Here…. Somewhere in the corner.

Let’s begin! 😊

One natural edge piece of planking left… It’ll do.

First (for me anyway) a template – this piece of cardboard box will do.

The shelf is cut accordingly – ‘tested’ in the corner, & found perfect (my perfect- not necessarily YOUR perfect πŸ˜„)…

A few ‘left overs’…

Decent straight edge…

1″ x 1″ shelf supports are measured – since I don’t want them in MY eyesight – they’re a few inches shorter than perhaps ‘norm’, and the shelf will have one screw each side to ‘rest the front lip on.  One screw at back corner to prevent shifting – not nec – but what the heck…

Longer side – 11″

Shorter – 9″

The pieces are cut & temp. Caulked into place – while leveling… Temp screws keep it honest.

Front cross piece – ditto.

The shelf meanwhile, is coated with polyeu & drying in the sun.

And final level test…

Good…

Good nuff for gummint work – then summ.πŸ˜†

Time to slip the shelf onto it’s perch…

Yaaaaa. Looks goooood!  Level?

Gummint work level!!!

Am pretty much redoing this corner of the galley – I want to have clear counter space after too many years of clutter.

Soooo – using more ‘found’ material – created a pot/pan lid & dish ‘rack’ – Wall mounted OFF the counter AND small mug rack…

Those are wood beads caulked onto the very sharp edges of the cut metal – found the beads years ago – in a drain ditch – on the way back to the ranch.  Ya never know…

Devised a new spice rack off the surface as well… Am liking it a lot…

As I said – Rustico!

In next couple of days, I’ll go to the local mill & see if I can find enough for the counter expansions.

Hassta!  for now.πŸ˜„πŸ˜ŠπŸ”¨πŸΎπŸ˜€

AVAST!  Counter Expansions underway!  12.17.17πŸ™Œ

Located a fair plank at the mill.  It was a bit bowed cuz it was so wide (14″ +/-) from age & weather exposure over years.

As u may see.  I had already cut the larger piece last afternoon – from – a cardboard template!  The rounded out bit is to give easier access to trash bin underneath.

These are soon to be bases for the extensions…

Old old but very flat flooring out of the cabin I helped tear down in 2009/10…

Testing size – fit – along with the filler piece against wall.

Good. 😏. Now since am using the perfectly level old counter areas as a base (why not?) And the NEW counter expansion is bowed … I broke it’s back…

Laid it bow down on the boardwalk & stepped on it til it cracked…Flipped over & found a couple of tiny shimms to keep it opened to just about flat.

Again – Rustico! my perfect – probably not yours… πŸ™…πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹β€β€

Caulked the crack – waited – now going to nip off protufing unnecessary shim bits.

The front also has a few – natural – these also get treated with a bit of caulking.

Just a bit of a note about paint/sealer/polyeur – regarding whatever applicator (brush) used…

While waiting for one layer to st/dry sufficiently – for the next one – o use a plastic sandwich bag – zipped to the handle.  Works!

Pieces are dry enough to be placed!

Flat enough!  Level enough!  Space enough!  Am likin  it a lot!!! πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ’™β€πŸ’™πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘.  Time: 4 hours & 2 mugs of coffee.

Evening beverage begins – NOW πŸ˜‹πŸ‘ˆπŸ˜ŠπŸ‘ˆ

No need to go into the other range side – as it is basically a flip.  Flip the cardboard template – re- mark as necessary & go to work on the wood… Eezy Peezy!πŸ˜ͺπŸ˜‹

Probably tomorrow.

Biblical Paintings from a Bible of the ’50’s.

Dad gave this bible to mom in 1960 – I re-discovered it while shelving books etc.  

Thought some out there might enjoy viewing many of you mat not have seen.

‘Old world maps are in the back of the bible – which I’ll be adding in a couple of days – showing all the countries/areas age correct, and routes of flight & migration.

Beautiful depictions

There are a few I missed – will get em later & ad the scripture location where missing etc.

YouTube cartoon videos programming toddlers for trauma and destruction

by Jon Rappoport

November 13, 2017

Play very close attention to this one. It’s boggling.

A reader recently sent me a note which alerted me to a form of programming I’d never heard of. The links he sent introduced me to what is a very widespread phenomenon on YouTube. The technology involved is beyond my limited understanding. Some of you will be able to clarify the β€œsituation.”

While Google and YouTube are engaging in censorship of political content, they are allowing a packaging of cartoons for very small children. While Momma works around the house, her toddlers can sit, mesmerized, and watch long-form collections of cartoons.

But in these cartoons, there is disturbing content, to say the least. Ugliness, violence. All presented in a repetitive cheery tone.

Supposedly, some of this content is created by random algorithms. From what I’ve seen…

Ann Coulter – a Lost Icon & Journalist – Radicalized!

Less than 24 hours ago Breitbart News published an article by Ann Coulter – who I thought to this point expressed the views & thoughts of a broad spectrum of the USA peoples.

I do not feel this way now and was noticing months ago, her tone & commentary slide in another direction – perplexing, but she’s human & can change if she wants.

Possibly to her detriment.

Coulter has now become a full blown supporter of Islam, the Muslims & open borders.  But her Sig other IS Muslim, so it reasonably seems – may have had MUCH to do with a 180Β° change in her views, her loss of reason and absense of analytical, logical process.

This is an astonishing read.

The Wall – Construction Could Include Prison Space

I’ll include a detailed structural draft in a few days.

More prison space is needed, evidently, but this could initially be reserved for ’empty barrels’ and swamp dwellers.  This may also resolve a good part of the issue of wall funding.

Along much of this wall at a minimum of 15 feet up – build prison cells in end to end alignment.   All the cells would face south – into mexico.

The structural measurements could be: cells – 6’w X 10’L X 8-9′ ceiling – with chase space of 3 to 4’w running the length of all cells and in between each cell, if necessary.  Along the inside or north side – abbutting a 6 foot wide monitoring/service corridor.

Total width across wall approx 16 to 18 feet.

Exercise area on the roof with a protective, solid fence along the south edge of cells – open fencing otherwise to north, east, west – covered/sitting areas central to the exercise area.

Construct blocks in 20 unit increments utilizing the continuation of the service corridor as a travel track to the next block & a third block – which houses the main food services area, medical, support offices, quarters for the inmate handlers.  Since this is a remote location, appropriate work schedules will have to be devised.

Usual prison amenities for inmates.
