I did a bit of carpentry and covered over the hole left my the whole-house audio system main panel. It looks ugly, but it's less ugly than a big hole. Now to paint over it.
I picked up some wood at work. I found a pallet stapled together, which is far better than those damned twisty nails. I also picked up a broken maple cabinet door that was being tossed. Good maple, too. The maple might make for a nice new cutting board, but I have no idea what to do with the pallet.
I want to do a mini-shed for outside. Considering the cost of plastic sheds, I can just about build a plywood shed for the same price.
