Do you calculate your own material take-offs or leave that to the lumberyard?
.
Calculating roof sheathing is fairly straightforward. Even with a more complex or mixed pitch, the covered floor area is multiplied buy the appropriate slope factor separately then added together. #mathneverlies #framermath #materialtakeoff •

I was hoping to pick up some side work while on the road to pay for this trip but it looks like @greaseball1987 has already staked claim to the iconic Alaska Highway. #cultureofcraft #keepcraftalive #workmanship #hustle •

Simple Tip Sunday! Brought to you by MasterCrap (not a sponsor, just what was in the garage). •
Knowing how to use your speed square efficiently is the whole point of carrying one. There are plenty of “tricks” that these little guys can do. And none of them are taught in carpentry school (you’re supposed to use a framing square for everything). These techniques you will learn in the field from a seasoned guy or in a sink-or-swim moment. #simpletipsunday #tricksofthetrade #theydontteachthatinschool #speedsquare •

Do you modify your tools? I generally do not but the grip needs to be stripped off the @estwing_canada nail bar. #olfaallproteam #olfacuts #modified @olfacuts •

Today was hot, but this lift had me sweating even more. You should ask @jacobwd_ how he was feeling on the controls.
The job will be getting raked 15° for the remainder of the project. Gotta reach the rooftop patios. #dailycraneforkengel #doyouevenlift #Shortrig •

How often do you check you tapes? I was getting some inconsistencies between me and my cutter. Asked for his tape and they read different. But whose is right?
Worst I’ve seen was a brand new 100’ lufkin that was short by 2” at the 60’ mark. #measurecutswearrepeat #accuracymatters #tapemeasure •

#mathneverlies … I’m not going to lie. I was stressed out about these oversized raked walls fitting. Every component (plates, studs, beams,…) where all calculated off plan, cut, stacked, and banded in the shop, then assembled on site. This is one task that I am proud of. #componentframing #prefab #mathitout #thingstheyshouldteachinschool •

Left: Mascot ADVANCED LINARES work pants brand-spanking new.
Right: Mascot LEMBERG work pants after roughly 3 years of use.
These pants are expensive and I put off replacing them. But they are functional and they survive. They are also the first comfortable / fitting pant that I have found for my 170lbs, 6’5” frame. (And @stenewoodwork there are no wedgies). #workwear #becomfortableatwork #acarpentershouseisneverfinished #mascotwork •
