the block (a 6 inch thick slab from a tree) weighs about 45-50 pounds. the stand maby weighs 20.

~ I almost hit my neighbor's car the same way...  (Now I know that it's there, I look for it)  Used to barrel out of my driveway, in pitch dark at 5:55am with a car full of kids and backpacks, work gear, lunch bags, and school clothes on hangers because my kids were still half asleep!  :rofl:  I pity the fool who parked their car behind my hard to see out of Van.  :smoke:

well ive gone from throwing knives and hawks to climbing a tree and pruning it with a bow saw to tanning animal hides and shooting  pellet guns, then loading up targets and real guns in the car to tieing a hammock up in the yard and then sleeping in it. all in one day. but what really trips them out is when i set up a tent in a foot of snow and camp in it. they think im going to wind up on the news the next day  :rofl:

Heres a night view just as the sun was setting. Ive got two flood lights on both ends of the cabin that I can switch on from the kitchen in the house. The porch light is a florescent bulb. Another blue florescent inside the cabin in the floor lamp and the blue ribbon sign. The table was just for getting the satellite set up for dish net work TV. We changed it for the floor lamp and side table to set the TV on.

~ It's a Man cave!  happy097.gif 

 

No red light...  just a blue light special.  :rofl:  I like it Swede!  :thumbsup:  It looks like it's decorated in Mid-Western Mid Century Neon... raw wood, with kind of a rural Bar theme in mind. Nice "space".  :smoke:

Do you have any idea what the cedar paneling costs?  :scared:

 

I guess the blue light inside might be a bit much.  :P

~ Screw the cedar paneling!  just LOOK at the grain in that wall! It's like expensive wall art, in and of itself! It looks completely raw and undone and not quite finished yet...  it compliments everyone on the site.  :thumbsup:

~ I think the blue light actually highlights the difference in the pattern of wood tones, it's starkness accents the curves of the grain.

 

(can you tell I watch a LOT of HGTV?)  :P :hugegrin:

It actually is unfinished rough bare wood. Its actually exterior wall paneling.

 

~ Well...  Bravo to you for using an exterior wall paneling in a unique and unconventional way. It really stands out. I like it just as it is.  :thumbup:  I'd never cover up that pattern with paint.
