Mirrors? - OneAyedJack
Settling into our newly built place. Looking to get mirrors without having to sell organs.... The largest mirrors will be in the master bath and both installed "landscape" not "portrait". One would be ~68" wide x ~32" tall and the other ~56" wide x ~32" tall. Any recommendations?...

[quote]Try carters[/quote] I did. Got me 3 kegs; Man-at-arms, Jucifer, and Kingfish Ale all in 2 days time. Texted me when they were available for pickup. I had no idea Carter's could even get me a keg. Dude there is doing a amazing job. Think I have my new go-to. Thanks!...

Where do you get your kegs??? - OneAyedJack
I'm in Walker. I used to order my kegs from Rouses on Juban a couple years ago, but I always had trouble with them. So, I switched to The Beverage Store in Baton Rouge. My contact person there was great. Had to put my Keezer in storage while I built my house. Now I'm back in the beer game and ...

[quote]Not sure if you’re familiar with crape myrtles, but I have them on both corners of my house and I am about to have a crape murder. The one hanging over my driveway drives me insane with the staining it has done to my concrete. Between the leaves it’s dropping now, the flowers it just dropped,...

re: Planting trees now???? - OneAyedJack
[quote]Who are you having do this? Also, do you mind if I ask how much per square foot(?) acre(?)? [/quote] It's by the square foot. Dune is a little more expensive than common. Common runs .08 to .10 cents/sq ft. Dune runs .12 to .15 /sq ft. The price can come down if you are doing a very la...

Planting trees now???? - OneAyedJack
We are finishing my build up now. Hydroseeding with Dune Bermuda on 08/24. I had this plan in my head that I would plan a few river birch trees around my pond. A couple of crape myrtles at the corners of my house and maybe the end of the drive. And, the big one, some type of fast growing pri...

Winches/Hoists - OneAyedJack
Let me start by apologizing if this is the wrong forum for this question. So, I built a "keezer." A chest freezer turned into a draft beer dispenser. It's awesome. Love everything about it. The issue I have is lifting 1/6 and 1/4 barrells over the top of the keezer to put them in it. 1/6...

re: Starter tools for woodworking? - OneAyedJack
Thanks for all of the info guys! FYI, I do already have a 12" compound miter saw. Figured I'd let everyone know because I've seen it mentioned a bunch. The only thing I've done with it so far was build an old reclaimed pallet wood wall in my shop. Came out real nice. I plan on using the s...

[quote] Too late to seed? Bermuda. [/quote] I wouldn't mind a Bermuda lawn at all. I know the benefits of it's quick germination as well, but from what I've read, I'll have to cut my grass 2-3 times per week. 2 acres, 3 times a week would undo me.... They are lovely lawns though....
