DIY Vintage Style Kitchen Light [Tutorial]

brian Projects Leave a Comment

This was an idea that I had for some time.  When I fabricated the quilted aluminum panels a few weeks ago, the idea all finally came together for a new (much needed) light in my kitchen. . A few notes about things : I used pine for the framing, and 3/16 underlayment for the metal backer.  You certainly could use anything else though.  Poplar would be great if you were going to paint it, and oak might look great for …

DIY Quilted Aluminum [Tutorial]

brian 1962 Shasta Restoration, Projects Leave a Comment

We are at the point on the shasta that I need some quilted aluminum. This is not quite original to our trailer, but it is period correct for a vintage travel trailer, so we’ve decided to remake ours that way.

This was relatively simple. Basically you need just a few things.

Restoring a Canned Ham Vintage Camper – The Beginning

brian 1962 Shasta Restoration, Projects Leave a Comment

So, we have been toying with the idea of a second camper for a while now. We know that eventually the kids will be bigger and the Regal Eagle will just not be big enough. A few months back I came across online, and purchased a 1962 Shasta Airflyte. We have been working on my mom/dad’s teardrop, and are almost finished up with that. I figured NOW was the time to get started on the shasta. So, I recently “tore …

Quick and Easy Asian Tyson® Chicken and Cauliflower Rice Recipe

brian Cooking, Sponsored Post, Stuff at Home Leave a Comment

Quick and Easy Asian Tyson® Chicken and Cauliflower Rice Recipe – We are constantly on the prowl for a new recipe, it’s a new year, and here are two parts to this Asian Chicken and Cauliflower Rice. Both are pretty quick, easy, and only 1 part takes a little prep work. You can pickup the Tyson® Grilled & Ready Chicken Breast Strips at Sam’s Club, and have this ready in about 30 minutes. The extra prep work (on the part of the cauliflower) I believe is worth it, in that it is better for you than a high starch rice (although that would work just as well if you choose).

Why I carry a Case knife (and you should too)

brian Sponsored Post Leave a Comment

So, a few months back I joined up in a great partnership with Case knives, and since then I have really come back to carrying a pocket knife on a regular basis. A lot of people have noticed my knife (in my pocket) and said “what’s that for’? My question to them is What is it NOT for? I used to tote a knife, and I quit for a while. Not really sure why. I guess maybe my pockets just …

Knife Safety with my son and a Case knife Reunion

brian Gear, Sponsored Post 1 Comment

So, my son is starting to get a little bit older now…. Obviously.  I think it’s about time for him to start learning some responsibilities with some of the things that I had as a kid. This all started a few months ago, when he and I went target shooting.  He had asked me about “shooting guns”.  I taught him the basic rules of gun safety,  quizzed him a bit,  and then we went to our makshift range out  back.  Although he …

brian Camping, DIY 2 Comments

Well, if you have been reading my blog for a while now, you know that among other things, we really like to camp. Part of our camping adventure is that I built our Teardrop (ish) camper that we currently camp in. I started a series of posts a while back that covered the what and how of our camper build.  Y BUT.
