    New Hearing Aids

    I've worn hearing aids for over 30 years, probably close to 40 years. During that time, I haven't been able to listen to music very well. I can't put ear buds in my ears because of the hearing...

    Okay, I understand. The smaller in width you make the staves the easier it is to fair the inside curve. The outside is no problem.

    When I first read this I thought she left the kid with you for three days:) I was thinking: "Well, that's an interesting way to get someone to babysit."

    Thanks for the pointer. I probably would not have found that on my own.

    No, I'm old school. I do a full size drawing and then measure the angle. But you have to remember that the angle you measure is like a miter. Half of it needs to go on each stave - or you only put...

    I'm not sure what you mean, Brian. The inside of the top is shaped by the arrangement of the staves, similar to the way the inside of a wooden barrel is shaped by the arrangement of the staves.

    Thanks for the idea, Jamie. A chain would probably work and be less expensive - and it shouldn't get in the way of stuff in the box.

    Do you mean to cut the angles on the staves? No, I cut them on the table saw. Each stave is about 1" wide and is cut 3 degrees on both sides. When I wanted to "turn the corner" and reverse the...

    Time honored? I had never heard that phrase before I joined this forum. And I don't consider that I live a sheltered life.

    More Coopering

    I made a corner cabinet recently with coopered doors, and they came out okay. Recently I was asked by a niece to make her a box of a certain size - actually, it should be called a big box or a small...

    I think you understood my point. What's wrong with saying "Congratulations"? The phrase you are advocating for has two meanings, while "congratulations" only has one.

    Words don't lose their power just because you try to tell someone that you have a different definition. Try going to South Central LA and screaming the n-word and then try to explain that no one...

    I don't think I'm the only one or we wouldn't have this long thread.

    What's wrong with saying "congratulations"?

    Mike

    [And I'm not making up a definition. I think I know exactly what it...

    So why not say that? Why use a phrase the borders on crudeness?

    It's obvious that it's considered crude by some people or we wouldn't have this long thread.

    Why not just say "congratulations" or a similar phrase? Why insist on using this phrase that seems to...

    I guess I never understood the use of that phrase. Why not just say "congratulations"? Or some similar phrase? I realize it's used in a backwards way as a way of offering congratulations but why...

    Many people use marquetry to decorate furniture. I know when I took up marquetry, it just added tools to my shop - I still needed all my furniture making tools in addition to the marquetry tools.

    I had a similar problem. I have a couple of closets that hold household items - heavy things like dishes. I bought some aluminum angle iron from Home Depot and put it on the front and back of the...

    You can take some approximate measurements from the picture. You know about how deep a seat has to be so that can get you started.

    I use diamond wheel, also. I only establish the primary bevel (25 degrees) on the WorkSharp and put a secondary bevel with Shapton stones (usually just the 8000 stone) by hand. I describe my...

    I'd weld it also. If you don't want to weld, braze it. Braze if pretty strong if done right.

    I would add to Dave's comment that building permits also protect the eventual buyer of the house. If there were no building permits, every buyer would have to have a complete inspection of the house...

    I imagine the code says that any structure bigger than some size requires a permit. You can bet someone will want to build a garage (or mother-in-law quarters) and call it a doghouse.
