what i did this weekend


so, about 270 square feet later, done with one room. the wood is tiger stripe stranded bamboo.

i put the sealer down thursday before work and finished after work on friday. then on saturday i got a little less than half done, but i got most of the cuts done. then on sunday i just flew down the lengths of the room.

the room is about 26 feet x 10 feet, plus a closet. so it was a pretty big room.

love the look of the wood, tho.


i'm planning to build a books shelf/tv stand on the purple wall, but not until after taking next weekend off. i can't believe how tired i am, and that i have to go to work in the morning. tho i have not yet checked my lotto tickets.

my left hand took a beating on this project. when i was kneeling to spread the glue and place the boards, i was always leaning on it. its weird how weak it is. i almost dropped a salad when i tried to move it with my left hand. and my pinky isn't really taking orders. i iced it down for a couple of hours, and its better. i'm sure it will be fine. i can't believe how old i am.

thanks. i cleaned out all the crap this morning, so i'll try to post some new photos tonight, maybe. i like how the right wall looks bent in this one, tho. in real life, it isn't.
