For those of you who were wondering what Jim's finger looked like underneath the big fat bandage...

The first pizza baked in the Tulikivi.

The pizza is done. But if you look closely, you will notice it is far past done. In fact, it's so burned on the bottom that it's inedible!

That's 5 minutes in a 460 degree oven with the pizza set directly onto the bricks in the oven. NOT a good idea!

We did eat the sausage, pepperoni, and cheese off of the top of the pizza.

Charcoal pizza.....

More kitchen cabinets...

Now, before we get started, let's take a few moments to talk about shop safety......Please remember to read and follow the safety instructions.....

Jim has about six stitches in his middle finger from an accident with the router. If only he had used the yellow work holder.....

The stitches can come out in about two weeks.

Jim has got the floor of the shower finished. Now for the walls....

Jim and Steve started working on the railing around the stairs to the basement. They got the posts in place and the trim around both sides of the stairs.

The railing is really nice!

The railing on the deck is now complete.

Jim is enjoying the new deck.

Ziva's favorite place to sleep - the laundry basket.
