'Jasmine' coming together really nicely! Sub floor done in 2 days and all the extension frames complete. This week will see the 2 houses tied together and the trusses go up. She will be a totally different girl come friday! Great effort by the boys as always! @matthewrafton @charliebuilds @mattking728 @graya_tm #carpenter #carpentry #builder #brisbanebuilder #graya #timber #paddington #brick #architectural #construction #masonry #makita #dewalt #milwaukee #paslode #renovation #extension at Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

It's an incredible feeling getting to this point of the job. Taking delivery and erecting something that you drew 6 weeks ago, prior to any of the work starting that is so crucial to its success. When it fits together like a meccano set and works out to the mm for height and setout, it's a huge relief. Thanks everyone involved for being so diligent and working as a team to make this work so well. @graya_tm @styleform_concrete @workingbucket @mattking728 @matthewrafton @charliebuilds #carpentry #carpenter #builder #brisbanebuilder #steel #structuralsteel #concrete #construction #makita #solalevels #imexlasers #timber #Queensland #brisbane at Paddington

On site DIY Trammel for laying out curved walls!

Probably one of the weirdest tools I've purchased but I don't think I can name one other tool that increases productivity as much as it does. It took longer to throw the boards in the bin than it did to pull the whole deck up. #ezylifter #deck #house #carpenter #carpentry #builder #brisbanebuilder #timber #tools #makita at Paddington

It's been a massive year with this lot! I've built some of Brisbane biggest and nicest homes, learnt a tonne and made some great mates along the way. Looking forward to an even bigger and successful 2019! @graya_tm #carpentry #carpenter #builder #brisbanebuilder #graya #timber #makita at Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

It feels great to get back in the ground again after quite a while working above it. The Sola Sprinter 30 metre tape and @imexlasersaus i88R making life easy for me. The Sprinter is super easy to read and doesn't have the confusing extra numbers that all the other 30 metre tapes have. And the mm receiver on the Imex receiver is such a time saver it's ridiculous. Telling a machine operator exactly how much they need to dig or fill saves hours! #carpentry #carpenter #builder #building #house #renovation #solalevels #imexlasers #dirt #ground #excavator #excavation #makita #brisbanebuilder #graya at Paddington

The fixout rig. I keep a separate saw purely for fixout and more accurate timber work. My framing saw gets flogged and i simply can't rely on it to do the level of work I aim to achieve in a fix out. That saw is a Makita LS0714. It runs a 190mm blade. I prefer the smaller blade as it has less blade movement, deflection and less chatter which results in cleaner cuts and miters. The bosch table saw is a new addition but something i could never do without now that i have one. And i run compressed air over gas, any day of the week. Gas is unreliable. I cannot count the hours I've lost trying to repair gas guns when they won't fire. As annoying as air hoses are, I plug my gun in, i know it will fire.. #carpenter #carpentry #builder #brisbanebuilder #timber #fixout #mitre #wood #architrave #makita #bosch #paslode #compressor #rolair #mitresaw #nailgun #flooring #door #jigsaw #maxus at Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

Finished spotted gum bulkheads for @graya_construction. What a joy to build! There was a bit of a technique used to ensure all these miters never open up and remain 100% tight which i may delve into in a later post. Though you can't give up all your secrets.. #carpentry #carpenter #timber #spottedgum #construction #builder #brisbanebuilder #brisbane #paddington #wood #makita #solalevels #promactools #stairs at Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

In my time on this earth I've learned that common sense is not all that common. If you're going to install an expansion joint in a tile floor. 1. You need more than 3mm over 15 metres. 2. Don't leave the cross spacers in every tile and the expansion joint so everything cannot move. That negates the point of the expansion joint. #construction #tile #tiler #tiling #jadecorp #carpenter #carpentry #construction #dodgy #masonry #highrise #builder #brisbanebuilder #dumb #getanewjob #qbcc at Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

The original sheet metal benders. My proper sheet metal benders went walk abouts. Rather than crying about it, i kicked it old school and did what the old boys did. As much as I love tools, you don't need the fanciest tools all the time, sometimes you've just got to get the job done. #carpentry #carpenter #flashing #sheetmetal #metalwork #builder #brisbanebuilder #metal #timber #wiss at Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

The biscuit joint and titebond 3 hardwood miter test. Glued and miter clamped for nearly 2 days. The Miter didn't even give, the spotted gum timber split.

A laundry I recently completed. This laundry was affected by water ingress due to poor external drainage and lack of waterproofing to the foundation walls. Which resulted in large amounts of mould and rot. I gutted it, ground it back to bare slab and had a licensed waterproofer apply a positive and negative membrane to the floor and foundation walls. No more musty smell, and best of all, no water ingress. #carpentry #carpenter #builder #construction #laundry #laundryroom #cabinets #tiles #subwaytile #backsplash #makita #solalevels at Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

Pre-fabbing manholes on a bench. The only way to do it. So much faster, easier and more accurate. #carpentry #carpenter #trimcarpenter #trim #builder #construction #brisbanebuilder #timber #fixout #paslode #titebond #keter #graya at Paddington

Huge thanks to Michael from @promac_tools for coming to site to sort out my non issue with my level. Not only did he hook me up with a brand new 2 metre Sola level, he was generous enough to throw me a HPL75 and a bunch of their new pencils and merch. Plus an in depth lesson on how levels work and what separates the good from bad. I didn't know you could know so much about levels. Check out Sola levels if you're serious about your workmanship and take a look at the sensitivity of the HPL75. It blew my mind. #solalevels #sola #level #carpenter #carpentry #brisbanebuilder #therealredstick #construction #spiritlevel #building #brisbane #love #cabinetmaking #woodworking #tiling #tiles #tiler at Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
