Just for the record...still no bus work happening but I have made a lot of progress on this big a$$ bench. Still a lot more to do but, in spite of 100+ degree heat index daily, I am making progress.

Here is the latest pic. A lot more has been done but we worked too late in the day for pix.



ONWARD!

For anyone so interested --- below is the latest on the BAB (Big Ass Bench). I have now hand applied about 4400 pounds of concrete. Still have another thousand or so to go but it will be nearly a month before I can get back to work on it. Gotta go earn some bus money for a couple of weeks.

Wow, that is so awesome Tango. I hope the rest goes smooth for you and that your back is doing better.

More off topic stuff...

Got the "scratch coat" applied to the seat area. From here it will be about three weeks before I can get back on it. Gotta' go make a little bus money (I teach classes every summer in this wacky art).


Still another 1500 or so pounds of cement media to lay on this beastie.

4,400 pounds hand applied and another 1,500 to go.

That's a LOT of mud.

It looks great.

Looks great Tango, can't wait to see it finished.

How long would something like that last in the winter months?
Frost moves and breaks a lot of stuff here.

That's no margined trowel? Could be a steel rake on the big runs and a small garden rake for the knot holes?
Looks good
Damn that's a lot of work but hopefully some real good bus money.
I know what it takes to do concrete construction but CONCRETE ART.
No wonder your back hurts!
You need some of your students helping? But I understand the help will cut into the bus money.
Either way DAMN FINE WORK.
