Tile floor for living room & kitchen

1/4" durock on thinset grout in preparation for tile.

Due to space limitations I can only work on about half the room at a time. Once that half is tiled then I'll shuffle the appliances and furniture around so that I can work on the other half.

Re: cabinets

There are still several loose ends to tend to, but the homemade kitchen cabinets and backsplash are up and running. Now on to the next phase of construction.

Re: cabinets

A small wall cabinet to fit in the corner.

After trying it both ways, I prefer to expose the knotty back side of the ACX douglas fir plywood, rather than the smooth front side. The smooth side tends to be boring, though it varies from sheet to sheet.

cabinets

I've been neglecting shooting projects while I build cabinets. I had never built cabinets until now so it has been a learning experience and many newbie mistakes were made, nonetheless the cabinets are functional, and I'm gradually getting better & faster at it. The visible pieces are local blowdown...

Re: S & W N-frame Project

What's next? -- try drilling a hollow base -- try a slightly longer (say 0.050") ogive -- try a GC version that is loaded full throttle. Ross Seyfried recommended full throttle loads for his 1 MOA revolver project. -- try the control bullet with 300 MP and with Lil Gun. That's all I can think of at ...

Re: S & W N-frame Project

A re-test of the coated 75% meplat with shallow hollow point. I had tested this previously but with a slightly different load that clocked over 1400 fps, so in order to give the hollow point a fair chance I retested it with the current load that clocked 1365 fps. Also, the HP was slightly different,...

Re: S & W N-frame Project

The meplat shootout continues with a 95% meplat. https://imgur.com/eq9sgjz.jpg I halfway expected the 95% meplat to be unstable, but it made round holes in the paper and turned in a 3.75" average. Go figure. https://imgur.com/NXwzSk5.jpg Then I tried a couple of hollow point versions of the 95% mepl...

Re: S & W N-frame Project

Hi Dan, For what its worth to you, I would love to see more experimentation on this subject with hollow pointing these bullets to try to determine at what point hollow pointing helps accuracy and at what point it starts to hurt accuracy. How about the .25" hollow point as you drilled it but maybe w...

Re: S & W N-frame Project

The meplat shootout continues ..... today I tested the 85% meplat with the usual control load. https://imgur.com/96uLndA.jpg Top half of the target is the solid nose 85%, bottom half is the hollow point 85%. There was a switchy 5 to 7 mph wind that may have contributed to the horizontal and diagonal...
