    Thank you, Bud. I genuinely appreciate your words of confidence. I certainly own more tools now
    than I did before I owned a house. And I have learned to use many of them. I didn't grow up
    with anyone ...

    Wow. I know when I'm beat. There is no way I have the skill to do this, nor the aptitude to
    learn since I'm an all thumbs type of person.

    Not being mean, at all. I appreciate the help. The door in question has clear double pane glass
    on the upper half, so finding a used replacement door may be a problem.How do I go about sawing
    off the ...

    Well, a guy at Home Depot convinced me that given the amount of rot in the door, it would be
    better and longer lasting to cut that section off and replace it. How? I could buy a

    I don't want to remove the door. I plan to 1) Apply wood hardener to stabilize the rotted wood
    still present.2) Drill screws 1/4 of an inch deep to help stabilize and reinforce the epoxy.3)
    Put thin s...

    I have not seen it filled like that but that might be the trick and if that dosn't work you
    could then cut it off.Yes, that's always an option. I'm sure there must be one of those shops
    around my area...

    I haven't seen anyone try a repair that big and will be real interested in the outcome. I would
    be more inclined to remove that part and glue and screw a new peice one.After that yopu will
    need some k...

  • Posted in thread: Chemical used in garden unsafe for edible plants? on 06-24-2014 at 10:27 AM
    You're "pretty sure" the soil would be unsafe to grow food plants? I'd ratchet that up to
    "darned certain." I mean, if you apply poison to your garden where do you think it goes?I'd
    either go the rais...

    One of our doors has a significant amount of wood rot on the outside lower panel (about seven
