Working with Kate (and Driving Around the South Bay)

Since her brother, Nik, worked with Bryan last Saturday, it was Kate’s turn to spend a day with Bryan.

Getting 1/2 Yard of 3/4-Inch Crushed Rock

Kate and Bryan started their chores by going to U-Save Nursery in San Jose to pick up a 1/2 cubic yard of 3/4-inch crushed rock.  West Valley Sanitation specifies that the connection to the sanitary sewer have six (6) inches of 3/4-inch crushed rock above and below the connection.

Reviewing the Redwood Slab at Artisan Burlwood in Berkeley

After changing vehicles, Kate and Bryan went north up 101 and crossed over the Bay Bridge into Berkeley.  They were going to Artisan Burlwood to review the work that was being done on the Redwood slab for our dining room table.  Bryan had selected a particular slab, which is narrow at one end (34 inches) and gets wider at the other end (43 inches).

Our plan is to have a two-piece 13 foot long table in our Dining Room.  The slab would be cut at approximately 9 feet, with the other piece (4 feet) being the 43-inch wide section.  This piece would extend into the living room.  Bryan plans on working with Scott Andersen and Darren Johnson to design a stainless steel base for the table.  More on this to follow …

Upon inspection, the Redwood slab needed a bit more work, so Bryan will send Jim Parodi an e-mail.

Having completed the chores, Kate thoroughly enjoyed her long-awaited ice cream treat at Baskin Robbins back in Los Gatos.
