That must not be much at all, then!

That looks delicious. How'd they turn out tastewise?

Yeah, that's nothing. Here's a pic of definitely too much alcohol, with the added side benefit of a hilarious expression from Cartoonin:

That's the expression to expect when toking from an apple pipe.

Apple shot glass, actually.

Thanks! From what everyone has told me they turned out great. My wife made sauce out of them that is better than any sauce from a jar I've ever had.

Awesome idea! I have an apple tree out back that is struggling under the weight of many apples and we have a party coming up soon, for which we made our own cranberry vodka and blueberry gin, hence the liquor on the table.

That's not much drinking at all.

I think that's a good plan for this weekend. Anyone have any good recipes?

Is it just me or has this thread started to sound like the Food Network forums?

Hey, I'm not the one on trial here.

YES YOU ARE!

As I recall, it was purchased for Bananas Foster.

I believe I'm old. I noticed the phone on the wall first and can't recall the last time I had a home phone, THEN I noticed the bottles.

Did some more building:

We (and by we I mean I do it) do all our own windows and moldings etc. I have have been making and installing screens and their frames for 2 days! its driving me a bit crazy.

Looks great! I like the 2x6's on the roof but that must have been hell to install. Definitely post pics when you're done.

The same kind that have HO HO HO emblazoned on their cabinets.

It was a Christmas/New Years party, after all.

3 bottles of booze makes you lushes? LOL I rarely drink and I easily have that beat by a wide margin.

Very nice!

Nice poster. Don't want to be a total douche, but the "with David Rae" is bothering me. Doesn't seem to share the same perspective as the rail. If the text got smaller to the left, I think it wouldn't look off.

Really like the photo and "The Early Night Show." Good balance, colors, and use of EXTREME BLOOM! Nice job!

i had forgotten to fix that as I was working on it. Little late now though. I was a bit of a rush job I got caught up in the silly requirements the print place puts on their files... so abnormal!

I did some more creating/finishing:

Took me a month to complete. I am very glad I didn't have to figure out the valley rafter cuts. That stuff still confuses me.

That looks amazing. Well done.

Amazing stuff. What do you do for a living, Blotto?

for a living, hmmm. I just finished my masters of architecture, but I havent found a job yet in my field (I also havent started looking, so that goes hand in hand :P). Each summer I work for a couple different people building things. This particular project was my little baby you could say. I was there for over a month and periodically people would come in and help me with things I didnt understand... such as valley rafters, I still dont understand those things. I never thought I'd have to use trigonometry in real life.

Its a great job building things like this, but its not to my own profit, which is sad. I like the people I work for so I dont mind, but I either need to find a job in a firm or break out on my own and start contracting my own work. Starting out on my own would require a significant investment in tools etc on my part though.
