Neat trick

Postby Brian Shannon » Sun, Mar 26 2006, 11:48PM

Sometimes I like to take a digital picture of a wall, correct the perspective with a photo editing program, then stretch the image on a wall of the correct size.

So, is that a single straight wall with the image on it? That really turned out nicely.

Dude, do you always put that much detail (plumbing, house wrap, etc) behind your walls? That's pretty cool.

I had thought you put the image on a straight wall from the first post. I see now that the wall has corners and angles like the picture.

Good stuff!!!

Only the right corner has a 45 degree wall but both look the same after cabinets are installed.

That's pretty amazing Brian. I can see all sorts of uses for doing it that way. When installing, you'll know exactly where the studs are. More importantly, you'll know not to run screws through that upper cabinet to the left of the window into the water pipes!

Good job, nice looking layout too.

Now your making me think Jeremy. I could have my router predrill the backs for installation screws! O.K., maybe that would be too much.

I thought running screws into the wall until you hit water was the preferred way to find the water pipes. Same with electrical wiring... :joker:

Dan,

Been there, done that!


George,

Thanks for the kind words. That's why I titled it,\"Neat Trick\". It seemed to fit. :D

My worst experience was with pipes that weren't even hidden. They were sticking out of the floor where a bar cabinet was to be installed. They had big fittings on the ends, and rather than cut huge holes in the bottom of the cabinet, I asked the builder if there was any water to those pipes, and if not could I cut the ends off so the holes would be smaller. \"There isn't any water to those pipes, go ahead.\"

Famous last words. A flooded upstairs AND downstairs later, I take the X-Files advice and \"trust no one\"!

That's why you use a screw. If it leaks you can just leave the screw in the pipe :lol: . I hope it was a hot summer day when that happened so it at least felt good to get soaked.

I would have Kept pipe rings on the truck the old days.
The boys wouldn't let me keep them on the truck now. They
say the (cost!)

1/2\" with cap gets 15/16 hole
1 1/2\" D with No cap 2 1/4\" hole
1 1/2\" D with cap gets 2 1/2\" hole
I have this picture and sizes in eack truck
or they would be making 3\" holes for everything!
They would say (That is what was in the drill)
