Bar Build 045: Slate-B-GonePosted: March 11, 2011
Sunday afternoon I attacked the slate tile by the garage door, because it needed to go. This is one of the tasks I have been dreading since we decided to go and build a bar. Ripping stone off cement is not a fun or easy task. But, I had the tools to make the job a little easier:
In the above picture you see an air hammer, my work gloves, mask, hearing protection with i-pod. That air hammer worked like a charm. I attacked the stone with that air hammer like Lyndsey Lohan attacks a line of coke…relentless. The air hammer was easy to control, slicing through the slate with little effort. I had to be carful not to hammer into existing concrete and I admit I did dig a little too deep in a couple of spots. But, overall the job was difficult but not impossible.
Getting one step closer to the wood floor.
