Thumbs up Re: Neill's new kitchen underway!

Most certainly Christo!
Just get your backside over here, there's 2 spare bedrooms, a spare vehicle to have a good look around, I'll even take you down to Russell's restaurant to witness his plain red brick ovens and how well it stands up to commercial use and we can have a few hell pizza parties.
We might even find some of those TR4 parts that you are looking for.

I vote we wait till a bit after Christmas when it is really cold on the north side of the equator, then all head to Neil's place!!!

Off topic (as if that previous comment was not already), Neil, those flue drawings for the offset flue, were those sketchup or some other program? Just curious about that.

Cheers,
Travis

Travis,
I used a vector based graphic drawing programme called Macromedia Freehand MX which is now owned by Adobe.
We, (the Graphic Arts industry in South Australia) used it for many years before changing to Adobe Illustrator CS. I teach the programme (or at least the elementary stages) to various FFS and apprentice students. It is very similar also to CorelDRAW (the latest version X3 because Corel were scared to call it version 13!
I just picture in my mind, what is needed, generate the shapes, add a third dimension and then render it. Once completed, you save it in a .pdf either the smallest possible file size if a complex illustration, or the industry standard X1-a format.

Travis,
Saturday night and little on the tele so I decided to go out in the woodworking shed and cut up those redgum slabs for the bench tops. I go into hospital for a hernia surgery on Wednesday and just in time because throwing those slabs around tonight is giving me hell. I got the side fence up and trimmed today so will put up the back wall of the kitchen tomorrow which will see all of the 'heavy jobs' done before I am not allowed to lift anything heavier than a 'kitchen chair' for 3 weeks.
Here are the pics that you wanted to see, the 2 slabs that I used are 1900 and 2100mm long x 500mm wide x 70mm thick and weigh a ton, when lifting them by myself. I had to cut them in halves to fit through my thicknesser where I planed them to just over 60mm thick, This will be the joined/glued edges and the tops will end up around 32mm thick. I then ripped them down to 38mm when I planed and thicknessed them to around 33mm thick.
Whilst convalesing, I will biscuit join them, glue and cramp them into the 2 bench tops and then sand them on my rather large lacey belt, 6" wide and I can sand 10 foot long tops in one go.
I will put up a few pics of the kitchen progress tomorrow night.

Holy cow, Neill. Are you sure those gigantic slabs didn't GIVE you the hernia???

They're lovely pieces of wood and will make a truly remarkable countertop. What kind of finish will you put on them for the outdoors?

Hi Elizabeth,
I have thought about that long and hard and definitely NOT using a single or 2 pack epoxy.
All of the furniture that I have made in the past, I use a 'sanding sealer', 2 coats that lifts the grain a little, lifts and brings the real colour out, sand it (which will be done prior to installation anyway) and then oil it.
If and when used, it marks, then all you do is put some more oil into it with some steel wool which brings up the lustre and removes the marks.
I plan on oiling it lightly each time i use it but tht is as simple as wiping it down after use, just like we all do in cleaning up.

Neil
