I’ve been spending a lot of time in the atrium this week. Still working on the storage unit. That’s proving to be more time-consuming than I thought. Second project is some lattice-work we decided to do. We’ve had problems in the past with small animals (cats mostly) climbing over the wall of the atrium and sleeping in there. The idea was to build a lattice thing that would stop them from getting in and as an extra benefit we could use it to keep our kittens in the atrium if we wanted to.
Using this as an excuse, I’ve bought this fancy air compressor and brad nailer. Homedepot had these on sale this week so I nabbed one. The version they had also included a finish nailer and a stapler. Here’s my new toy:
It’s an impressive time saver. I was able to build this in a couple of hours:
Hard to tell from the picture but it’s seven feet wide and about four feet at its high point.
And here is the progress on the storage unit:
I know it doesn’t look much different from last week’s picture but it took all weekend to get it to look like this. Hopefully the next picture I get to take will be more impressive.
If you need me – I’ll be in the shop
One of the most important things i’ve learned is that the project is only as good as the tools .. it’s imperative to have the right set of tools.
That air compressor is a rather great new addition.
I love my new toy. This is one that is going to be very useful.
Happy Thanksgiving, Andrew, to you and yours!!!!!!!!!!
Happy Thanksgiving to you – enjoy the day!

A project is not worth doing unless you can buy new tools.
