    DeltaCad is what I've used for many years. It's not expensive and easy to use. I can sit down & just use it after being away from it for 6 months. I can't do that with Sketchup.

    Like way more expensive. Last I priced it, it was several times the cost of 2 layers of 5/8 drywall and Greenglue, which also has a better STC rating.

    Not much to choose there. You need another circuit, and the labor to run cable over that long run will be about the same whether you go with just another circuit or a subpanel.

    Yes, what Brian said. A torsion box a few inches thick with 1/4" skins is incredibly strong & easily would stand up to any loads that assembly or outfeed would put on it.

    The fridge & freezer should be connected to separate circuits. I don't know what the code calls for where you live, but the rational for the rule is that something that is full of $$$$$ of rottable...

    I think you mean conductive heat won't work in a vacuum. Good explanation though.

    Yes to what Jim says, and a big no to the cardboard. Google "triple leaf effect" and you'll find lots of reading on why you don't want to do this. Basically, the layers of cardboard in the stud...

    I too have switched to the water resistant MDF. Medex is the brand that the local suppliers carry. It looks like big box MDF, but that's where the similarity ends. It's much harder, stronger and...

    And as far as I know, none of the manufacturers keep them in stock because there is so little demand for them. It will have to be made to order and expect to pay lots for one.

    I believe the finish on the sides of the board is a film finish. What grit did you sand the faces to? Sanding it to 300 grit, or finer, will give it a slightly more polished looking surface. The...

    Deleted. I wrote a post thinking Ed was asking what to finish a deck with, then realized my suggestions would be of no use :)

    That would be at a scheduled inspection where permitted work is being done.

    Electrical inspectors always keep a very sharp eye out for non-approved equipment.

    I pay just under $.07/kwh & my collector costs between $.20 - $.25/hour, depending on which or how many blast gates are open.

    I couldn't agree more. There are countless abominations on YouTube where they're torching wood & calling it shou sugi ban. But really it's just plain ugly & not at all appropriate. I've seen it on...

    I've used brush on lacquer a couple of times, but probably never will again. I just couldn't lay down an even coat because it flashed too quickly. The idea of doing each nail hole with a small brush...

    Next trend will be to river tables made of shou sugi ban slabs. Best of both worlds. :cool:

    I don't think melting would be an issue with PTFE. As far as I know, it will degrade & break down before melting.

    I totally missed that. But it rules out me making one. I place a lot of importance on separating possibly damaging objects prior to hitting the impeller. Using coarse screens to do that causes too...

    I agree. The real shame is that some beautiful wood is being used up on these monstrosities & tons of epoxy that could otherwise go to good use is being wasted. Ever had a look at a river table that...
