     I LOVE my POWER TOOLS, especially my table saw  (below, right).  But first I had to put it together from a big  box of little parts (below, left).
       
   
       
     

   Installing Plank Flooring

     One of my most satisfying  projects was ripping up the old  carpeting in our upstairs office  and replacing it with clean,  easy-care plank flooring (right).

 
     
 
     
Garden Bridge
     
     

     Another rewarding project was designing and  building the redwood garden "bridge" (below).  
 It was a good solution to an inherent problem in
 our condo's patio yard:       
      The HOA would not allow changes to the slope  of the yard, so during heavy rains, water collected  in the center.  I installed a sump pump to  discharge excess water, but the pump was  unsightly and needed to be camouflaged.  The  garden bridge solved the problem.

   
      The bridge had unique features   (see below) and was a decorative   focal point for the yard.    
   
       

     I designed and built the bridge in modules for two reasons:
    
1) To make it easier to move into place and assemble.  
     
2) To allow an alternate use for the modules: The bridge
          can convert to a patio table, four stools, and eight
          flower boxes
(see below).
