    DIY air filtration unit for <$200

    Thread Starter: Dan Hintz

    As payback to the lasering community, I'm sharing my "plans" (such as they are) for everyone to copy. Well, not so much "plans" as pictures of the completed unit, but it should be obvious how to recreate something similar. Due to poor planning on my part and a lack of any real sleep, I made one...

    Living "Off the Grid"

    Thread Starter: Rich Riddle

    I have a friend who believes he lives "off the grid" though he does have electricity. He lacks a phone and water. Today is tax day and he hasn't filed in nearly a decade.

    Wood Movement Question

    How thick is that top? The brace looks a little wimpy compared to the top, but maybe it's a trick of the camera angle. (I am not an engineer, but I think
