This photo is for my friend Paul, who is considering replacing the carpet on his stairs with hardwood. I'm slowly making my way up my 18 stairs using the same type of bamboo flooring I installed, and the matching bamboo nosing which manufacturers gouge their victims with. You can see the air gun in the photo but that's just for the little trim piece on the side; the treads themselves are glued down with a special trowled-on goop which helps with the noise impact transmission. At my current rate of progress, Paul just may have his stairs complete before I do.

Note to self: When in the country, always make sure the peanut butter jar lid is tightly closed.

Second note to self: Peanut butter jars make excellent ant traps.
