Mike's extension & renovation (kitchen completion)

This is where we don't want anything but evidence of your finest wood butchering in all its glorious, and photograph laden glory. Bring your finished products or WIP's, we love them all, so long as there's pictures, and plenty of 'em!

That's pretty much it. On the front, there is nothing to show that there are any dovetails there if you are more than a couple of feet away. That little point of the pin is literally one kerf wide, and so is lost in the vast expanse of oak on the fascia. I'd maybe think about using them on a box, but I consider the use of them this time to be a lesson learnt.

:lol: :lol: I must post an update on the bike shed, which is nearing completion. It has some security features built in which I won't be posting, so there'll be only sparse WIP photos. I'm at that time of year where I have an indoor and an outdoor job running at the same time in case the weather intervenes, so it can take a little longer to finish any one job.

Simmer, Andy! :) I've got quite a list to get to before I start the boat, and probably a hip operation too. Upcoming highlights include oak ledged and boarded doors (cinch nailed) for upstairs rooms, a workstation for my office, a green oak framed sunroom on the back of the house, a huge dining table and 10 chairs, and various more minor projects. Then, and only then, can I start the boat.

Let’s hope the rising sea levels don’t move the boat project up the list!

Excellent work as always, Mike. I do have a question though:

Wouldn't this be considered more a corbel than a bracket? Or are they interchangeable in this instance?

That's a good question, Kirk. I think the best way to look at it is to think of a corbel as a category of bracket, (other than in the case of coursed masonry where one course overhangs the one below.......also a corbel but not bracket). It could well be said that this is a corbel, but it's also a bracket.

Very nice Mike! 8-)

Agree on the vent box, plastic looks cheap. Our extractor vents up a pipe into the roof void into a 4m x 100mm long pipe with the little plastic box with louvres that open when blowing and close when stopped.
