I got as far as attaching one plate to the wall and drilling two more pilot holes when the battery on my drill ran out. It's only a 6v unit and I've had it for 7 years so this isn't too surprising. Tomorrow I'll (a) buy a new power drill; (b) buy a new battery operated drill; (c) borrow Doug's drill. But the low battery cut short my plans to bolt down the flashing to the table. That'll come tomorrow.
In between buying hardware and lunch I also placed orders for the torches + assorted hoses and hardware and for the kiln. The torches and related bits will arrive either tomorrow or Wednesday, depending if I caught the shipping deadline for Arrow Springs, and the kiln will arrive Monday (FedEx ground from South Carolina). I opted for the small kiln because I suspect the circuit to the garage isn't big enough for anything bigger, and I'm buying Mega Minor torches while I'm on the waiting list for the GTT Cheetah.
I also got some spare keys cut, picked up yesterday's glass from Temperchi (photos will be up later tonight), and went for a run.
Tomorrow: attach the steel to the tables; anchor the bookcase to the wall; assemble the work lamps; clean the SF apartment; laundry in SF.
