Worked hard and played hard this weekend... regrouted and recaulked the tile in our shower AND replaced the shower doors, all of which was way overdue. Used a grout removal bit in my Ryobi 18v rotary tool to remove the old grout. First time doing that job; had a couple slips which caused a few nicks here and there, but otherwise it worked very well.

Then the family and I enjoyed a little apple pie and played for hours on our new toy - the PS Move!

What did the rest of you accomplish this weekend that didn't include making sawdust?

I helped lug in a new Camaster Stinger CNC router into my workshop :D

And I did some minor cleanup of the drywall and lumber I tore down recently... mostly I just put it into a neat stack.

I did a lot of car maintenance, mowed a couple of acres, and worked on taxes for my business. Fun stuff :rolleyes:

I dropped the #5 I used for my shooting board and it cracked. That was sad/discouraging because it is holding me up from finishing my project and I ruined one of my favorite planes. But I bought two hand planes and a combination square online. So the story has a happy ending. It was a moment of weakness, but I am looking forward to the new planes and finishing my project.

I also watched my Packers roll and began planning my next project. I am in the planning stages of a G&G inspired chest of drawers. I hope to complete my plan soon and begin my project in October.

Watched college football most of Saturday. Yesterday did the grocery shopping, laundry, etc., lounged by the pool for about a hour, then cooked dinner. Oh, the excitement!
