Put together a couple of plant stands. Want to do some indoor gardening during this winter. 1 1/2" x 1/2" barstock, oak stair treads which were like $20 at home poo-poo (best thing is I didn't have to cut or sand anything). Rattle can paint job in black. Got some grow lights on the way. A crop of carrots, radishes and beats are the first order of the day! Sorry about the crappy picture, everything is in the basement for the time being.

We rebuilt our interior staircase (stringers were mostly ok, just a small repair - we replaced all the treads and risers). We've started looking into a kitchen remodel next. Our house is very small and very outdated/cheaply done. I'd like to build all the cabinetry ourselves but my wife has vetoed that pretty hard 🤣

Well, the greater Brisbane region (over two million people) is under a strict lock-down since last night, provisionally until Monday evening. We had a local case of the UK mutation, and the government is stepping in early, rather than waiting for an outbreak first. Even though it's inconvenient, that's probably for the better.

We are back to the eerily quiet days we had back in March and April. Shops are closed, except for essential ones, such as supermarkets, pharmacies, and petrol stations. Restaurants can sell take-away food only. No-one is allowed out except for essential work (if that cannot be done remotely), outside exercise with one other person and only in the local area, etc, etc…

I've been hacking my Bradley smoker. Installed a fan a few days ago and, last night, a 900 W heating element that replaces the original 500 W one.

Also added an internal temperature probe for a PID controller:

I have plenty of plans for smoking things now :)
