Picture of the Day
November 22, 2019


you can tell we're deep into the 21st
century by how it takes a couple of
different lasers to raise a simple wall.
the bosch level makes it easy to lay
out the plates and studs, the measure
beats tape and is accurate to 1/16" at
up to 196 feet (theoretically). today i
started on the partition wall between
stairs and main space at the vault v2.
new makita subcompact rotohammer
works really well for a concrete drill
that's not much bigger than the dim
brick-like flashlights of my youth.
