Here's a couple shots of the landing, all sealed up and in place. I haven't mortared it in yet, but I wanted to share how it will look once installed.

The area between the two tape strips is going to be a faux chimney made out of the same clinker brick. I just need to get those last decorative bricks and stucco on, paint the trim, clean up the brick face, and I'll be done

Russell -
thanks for asking about the foot. It is improving. I'm in a walking cast now, no more crutches. I am getting around much better now, but still looking to get out of this thing!

Been sniffing around the clearance sales for next year's board... thinking about that Burton Barracuda.

Carnuba + Beeswax treatment on outdoor concrete counters = what seems to be a very good idea

Counter with a full wax treatment
Starting new 36" build-wp_000282.jpg

Counter with only a test area waxed
Starting new 36" build-wp_000283.jpg

I was frustrated that the counters were so dull and dingy after the winter. Cleaned them up and tested a small patch... then a larger patch... and as soon as the rain clears up I will do the whole thing including the mosaic!

The first wax I used was a furniture polish called Feed-n-Wax that is not exactly food safe. But it worked so well that I bought some Butcher Block Conditioner by the same manufacturer to do the rest. Both have beeswax + carnuba wax as the active ingredients. The wax really brought back the shine to the counters, and you can see how it repels water. I think I will probably need to get into a routine of applying every few months in order to keep up the appearance of the counters as the weather is too hard on them to go with no maintenance.
