    I was working on a body i painted and i brushed the shellac on, which made the paint flake off and blister. I guess it's a good thing i put down multiple coats of paint.

    Just been prepping a single piece top from a mad slab of beech i picked up about a year ago this is about 16" across 1 1/4 thick it has a bit of everything going on in it! kinda reminds me of those nasa pics of Jupiter

    IMG_20180322_185105.jpg Haven't been happy with my finishing results, and while this probably has more to do with my wet sanding technique and my choice of finish, I decided to build myself a 14 inch stew Mac style buffer

    Oh nice! I'm thinking about the same thing. Only finish I've been happy with so far is satin poly, but want to do the Solarez UV gloss next.

    yep. I forgot about that and went to brush some shellac onto my strandberg. it fucked up the fade/pulled most of the color and I had to redo it. I guess I'm using something else as a sealer.

    Sewed the buff out of some pink Flannel I got on sale. Not terrible for a first pass but I'll have to experiment more with these.

    Alright I'm done spamming the thread now.

    I had an accident a few years ago snowboarding and my X-ray looked almost exactly the same.

    Are they going to do surgery to straighten it out, or will it do more harm than good? Mine happened on the mountain, so by the time I managed to leave and make it to a decent hospital it had already started to heal and the doctors told me they would have to re-break it to make it completely straight again, and it just wasn’t worth it.

    It happened Wednesday night, so it's still within time to do surgery and correct the anatomy. I go under the knife tomorrow morning and they'll put a plate in it at that time. I expect to recover enough to do mundane tasks in about a week.
