...and crafting a purposeful recovery


One of the advantages of maintaining a blog on a subject about which I know little is receiving unsolicited advice. No, not the kind I mentioned a few posts ago – “find married women online” – but the sort that have to do with trailering on things I might not otherwise have considered. Take my brother-in-law Jim, a fine DIYer in his own right. Months and months ago while I was installing ceiling insulation he suggested that, for some future, as yet unknown, need, I might want to install tubing along the length of Sparta to run wire. Although by then I had already run hundreds of feet of 12 and 14 gauge wire (and was a little tired of the process), he said that I might later have a need for more wiring. So I bought some flexible 3/4″ blue plastic tubing from HD and installed it from Sparta’s “nerve center” to her Observation Lounge – for sailing buffs that would be midship to bow. I then pretty much forgot about it.

That is, until I installed the mantle above Sparta’s rounded front window last week and thought, “this would be a great place for some little speakers”. Yes, I know they now have “wireless” speakers for such situations, but I don’t trust them. You can barely shove full musical fidelity through 18 gauge wire. How the hell can one expect to hear it all when transmitted through thin air? (That is the Luddite in me). Enough outta’ me. On to pictures:

The secret passage
The aforementioned mantle. No, the wires you see are for accent lighting.
I did have to remove a birch panel. No big.
Then send my little canary into the coal mine via shopvac.
Pffft. Out the other end, none-the-worse for wear. Pull the wire through with the thread. My first effort broke. Use good thread or fishing line.

Don’t you feel smarter now?
