Tackle the bowl with dish soap/water razor scraper/steel wool/sponge/paper towels.

Next, what’s left of the old ash sweep system is rusted in place.  Break out the oscillating tool and cut off the bottom nubs that went through and it broke free.

Now it’s time to clean the bottom of the bowl using the razor scraper/steel wool.

Having the legs removed start sanding them with 150 grit sandpaper using long strokes just as is advised in the Weber Kettle Club restoration guide, and then moving up to 250 and then finishing with steel wool and then polishing.

MAGICALLY WONDERFUL HARVEST PARTY AT CEDAR ROCK GARDENS

Snapshots from Elise and Tucker’s fabulous and fun harvest party, just getting underway. Where earlier the produce had been planted, long tables with tantalizing pot luck offerings were arranged. Bales of hay with planks laid across made for practical seating. An assortment of lights and lanterns illuminated the grounds and the big oak tree was ready for moonlight dancing to begin beneath its boughs. cedar-rock-garden-harvest-fest-copyright-kim-smith

I had to leave Cedar Rock Gardens early to attend the Cape Ann Plein Air gala, which Catherine covered. Scroll down to see her photos posted earlier today. The Rockport Art Association was overflowing with art enthusiasts, friends, and family and it was so exciting to see beautiful scenes from all around Cape Ann rendered by these master painters. Congratulations to Karen Ristuben, the project manager, and to all who helped make Cape Ann Plein Air a fabulously successful event. I do have to say though that Cape Ann’s own JEFF WEAVER rocked the house with his stunning paintings of the waterfront and downtown. 

Scenes from Cape Ann Plein Air Gala

Photographs from last night’s gala. The exhibition continues today from 10-5 and straight to Paint Essex from 4-8PM.

Sunday drive…

Got up a little early this morning and decided to take a little “Sunday drive” up to Vermont to check out the foliage.  Got up at 4am and headed out on a solo journey with my camera.  Stopped through Newburyport first to check out the massive moon but wasn’t low enough yet so I headed on up to Woodstock VT to Jenne Farm.    Here’s a little phone grab…now I am onward to Route 100 to see what things are looking like!
