using old, wooden, interior doors as exterior doors requires a bit of #mothernature -testing, refinement, and #repair .
since weather and use wear things down over time, these refinements require something along the lines of the #japanese art of #ceramics#kintsugi , where the repairing of visible signs of the ravages of time and #human usage are treated as a part of the history of that object, rather than as things to be disguised and covered up and painted over.
in the art of kintsugi, fine metals like gold or #platinum are ground into powder, mixed with lacquer, and then carefully brushed on to & burnished into the seams or cracks of the object. .
so, technically i’m not doing kintsugi, but the underlying idea remains intact. and in this case instead of #gold or #platinum , i’m using #bondo , brass #nails , and wood dust.
Just when I thought I can go out and ride I get a flat rear tire. It was cause by the previous owner not putting in both rim locks. The hole where the second rim lock goes in was the unsupported location where the tube fail at, also the last owner used duck tape as wheel liner lolz. A quick run the chappral to get a new tube rim lock and rim liner and about 2 hr fighting to pull of / put on the tire in done and read to go. #repair#fixaflat#dualsport
