I continued working on the Konro Grill Project a bit yesterday. Not much, just a little sanding, sealing and painting. In small steps, I’m getting closer to what I expect. (See the other parts of the process if you like: Part I, Part II, Part III, Part IV)
The “coal in a flowerpot”-idea really didn’t work at all, so here’s what what I came up with instead last weekend:
I tried it with a 3-cm-vermiculite board from the hardware store and some heat-proof cement. Here’s the outcome – it still has to cure a little (according to the package) and I’m curious how it’ll work out. (See the other parts of the process if you like: Part I, Part II, Part III, Part IV)
Lately, we removed a part of the wall separating the kitchen from the living room, creating a counter. Thus a normal living room door would always have stood in the way, so we decided to put in a sliding door instead. It’s “Barn-Door” style and, well, it is really barn-ish looking:
I finally finished the smoker for the northern germany refuge that I was longing for for so long! It’s design is loosely based on the “munich smoker” at home (see series parts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and in action), but with a few modifications, adjustments and additions. But first, some images:
I used a lashing belt for setting up my hammock and someone I know who didn’t do this ever before asked me how a lashing belt works. Although it’s fairly easy I want to explain the general use step by step here:
The mobile communications network in my house is downright lousy (welcome to the germany of the year 2019… no more comments needed…), but I identified the perfect spot for my iphone on the windowsill.
Since I’ve got some Airpods lately, my phone finally doesn’t have to be close to me when I’m at my desk, and since standing upright seems to improve reception, I made this veeery simple cellphone holder:
We got wooden flooring in the northern germany refuge recently, and I had to install the baseboards (the mouldings covering the joint of the walls and the adjoining floor) over the last days. Since it’s an older house and not every corner is a perfect ninety-degree-angle, I had to rely on some measuring and precise cutting to make the baseboard joints nice and flush.
Another simple little project for the northern germany refuge. I used a wooden cigarillo box to make a cellphone holder for charging overnight. Unfortunately the white paint that I had still standing around was too thick to make a smooth surface while drying, so I had to sand it off a little and give it a layer of white spray paint. Unfortunately it didn’t turn out very pretty, but I think it’ll do its job.

I’m (somewhat) social too!
