    Thanks, Alan. Perhaps I need to clarify - I used the shopvac/cyclone example as the equipment requiring highest air flow. If I can find something that will work for those pieces of equipment, I'm...

    Alan, "functional" to me means more than chip collection. I've not seen any real reviews on the DR, but my hope was that for a single machine within 5-10 feet, it would work acceptably. From the...

    John,

    Thanks for the thought. Laundry is on the second floor, and is gas - no 220V in the entire house. *sigh* Doesn't let me use the honkin' extension cord I built a couple of years ago to use...

    Rich,

    Neat video. I'm familiar with the flash flooding in the area, but have never seen that video. Glad I wasn't down there!

    WRT rain for this, though, the school is actually located near...

    Dennis, those are what I meant by prefab footings. But given their heights, I'd need to dig down to keep the stage as low as possible. Given other thoughts, I'm thinking I'll pass on footings...

    Peter, you've made some good points, and have thoughts similar to my own at first. The desire to keep it as close to the ground as possible is to avoid the need for any steps. Building it like a...

    Thanks, guys. I have already talked to the school's owner about permitting/etc., what I'm trying to do is get plans sketched up to take to the city. My concern is less whether the city will accept...

    My experience echoes much of what's already been said - use dimensional lumber from the BORG. I used a couple of 2x6s to make mine, and it holds up fine. Didn't even bother to finish it with...

    Thanks, Dick. Since I wound up using an ersatz milk paint (i.e. really it's latex, but it looks kinda like milk paint when it's dried), I'm trying to find info about topcoating latex. Good...

    Prashun, thanks for the thought. After 7 coats, I was hoping to be done with a brush, but I can do a coat of shellac, I think. I have some dewaxed blonde (actually, I think it's sanding sealer, but...

    Oil over GF milk paint?

    Hi, all -

    A while back, I asked about filling scratches/dents before milk painting. I didn't have the success I wanted to see when I tried it with a sample board, so I switched to GF's "milk...

    George, this is exactly what I have in mind. Frankly, the issue I'd like to not repeat is pulling headless cut brads out of 1/4" stock, through 1/4" stock. I had to do that once when I messed one...
