    I moved my telescope into the kitchen because it was raining and later that night forgot it was there as I went to get a drink and I knocked it over. It broke the eyepiece holder, which I have...

    Today I went free diving at Mingo Cay, where I have been diving for 20 years. 90 percent of the coral is now dead. There used to be tons of fish, and especially parrot fish. You would hear...

    My shop is haunted (not joking)

    As you may remember, some friends and I formed a co-op, combined our tools, and leased a workshop. The other day, one of the individuals said she saw what she thought was me, walk in, wearing a...

    Barbados did similar a few years ago. They have been installing charging stations at malls, businesses, and other public places. My issue with a zero emissions mandate is that not everyone lives...

    Hind sight. Sipo Mahogany is extremely porous. This project was behind schedule. I thought a sanding sealer would fill the grain better than thinned coats, and actually it did just that, but it...

    I am revisiting this and just seeing that you have a 15 watt panel. My original response holds true that you MUST use a charge controller made for lithium batteries. That being said, you also need...

    I thought it was figured walnut when I saw it until I got to looking at it up close. It has a very brown appearance compared to other West Indian mahogany pieces we get in.
  11. My water based sanding sealer nightmare

    My students are making 10 mahogany tables and a mahogany bar for a local restaurant. I went to HD to get sanding sealer and didnt realize I got water-based. I hate water-based anything, but it...

    Wow, I have been busy and didn’t get to follow up on this post and it now is on page 7. Also it seems to have gotten a few folks riled up. That was never my intention. I am a weather buff, and I...

    Global warming and the weather

    We are already at V in the named storms list. We have had record wildfires in California and Australia. I have personally witnessed the dying off of our coral reefs and the explosion of sargasso...

    It is roughly 90” tall and maybe 48” wide. It is my shop partner’s project and is already complete. I am working on the house and didn’t get to be at the shop for the project.

  17. Mid 1800s wardrobe with curved crown moulding

    This was brought into the shop for my partner to restore. It is a West Indian (Caribbean) mahogany piece, likely built in the mid to late 1800s. It has been owned by a well-known local collector. ...

    Mine was quite specific and gave different increasing amounts of money for: one finger, multiple fingers, a hand, an arm... and so on, with similar for toes, feet, and legs. Max was only around...

    I was wondering what kind of guy would be able to do such a thing. Cutting off a hand is quite messy. I know- I've cut just the tip of a thumb off before! :-) * It was my own thumb, by the way. ...

    I checked this out and went to HD to look at the metal parts. They did seem fairly sturdy, but I was concerned with flex. I decided to make my own the way I have always done it- a box beam.

    Oops- meant to post in off topic. This was done before my morning coffee. That’s my excuse.
  23. That took commitment, and had to hurt.

    Woman cuts off her hand to claim insurance. Left the hand behind, went to hospital. They went and retrieved the hand and sewed it back on. This also answers the recent post, can you sew digits...
