  1. I was looking at that wood like expoy floor as well and thought the same thing
  2. plywood plank floors look pretty cool, thats a lot of cutting and sanding though!
  3. Anyone done wood flooring Or vinyl plank in their garage shop? I don’t park a car in my garage, mainly for woodworking but small section for dirtbikes which sometimes has dirt/oil drop. I’d like to do some kind of wood Or fake wood floor for the look but also seems like it’s easier on your joints than concrete. Thoughts or experience on this?
  4. Curious if there's any way to keep the sound down in a woodshop and if you do anything like that for your neighbors? I'm finally (well hopefully) moving out of rental houses + roomate life as I'm in contingency for a house in a small town in the Sierra Nevada's of California with 2.5 acres and a detached garage where I can have my wood shop (finally!). However, my future neighbors found out I ride dirtbikes and were kind of pissed by that (says another neighbor), I noticed next time I met one of the other neighbors they really emphasized how everyone up here likes it to be quiet and that they like their outdoor gardening time. They even tried to nicely tell me about other houses and areas to check out. Anyways I understand and can respect them and not rip around on my property to much with the dirtbike but made me wonder about all the noise of my woodshop (they haven't found out about that). I had been considering insulating the garage as I plant to spend a lot of time in it but wondering if there were other means to keeping it quieter while I'm at it. I was also thinking about adding a rear single garage door to the back of the garage to help with airflow/cross breeze, I guess I could close the front door when making lots of noise and have the rear open. I think I'll be doing my power carving/grinding in that back area also as I like to do that outside, back there its pretty closed off from the neighborsand and we're at the top of the hill so I believe noise usually travels up not down. Maybe I'm overthinking all this.. you cant even see any of the neighbors houses due to the property sizes and trees, but just something on my mind.. garage front (faces toward the nearest neighbor quite a ways away) back of garage (neighbor behind that retaining wall and a fence to the right but non to the left or really behind): edge of property is a bit farther than this (front of garage is down there in the middle):
  5. any idea what kind of hardware is used for this type of swivel out leafing table start at 2:58
  6. Anyone ever do one of these kits? wonder if it saves much time/money over / good quality what are your thoughts? Can anyone estimate how much permitting (California), slab, electric, insulation, paint would end up with one of these builds?
  7. I like that alternative approach to the problem my only annoyance on that is my bed slides out in two sections so I would have to maybe crawl over the bed to one side to tighten or lift up the cushions to get under. I'll feel it out in the actual van today and see what its like reaching under
  8. confirmed that this ones clip does stick to magnet but the body itself doesnt. it would work. kind of expensive tho compared to just bulk buying sharpies
  9. yeah thats a good idea just epoxy on a strip of metal thats just wire?
  10. anyone know of a regular sharpie that has a metal cap? I want it to stock to my magnetic tool strip like my mechanical pencils do. maybe some other pen cap would fit on a sharpie body.. this is the closets I found
  11. hey guys I build a slide out bed in my van and I dont like how the end legs slide in and out when I'm in the bed. if I add a clamp to locket down it becomes really sturdy. Anyone have any Idas on how add some kind of quick lock that will work at different lengths as sometimes the bed is always lid out sometimes its just half slid out.. my initial idea was to put a series of holes (maybe some kind of metal insert to keep strong) out of the bottom of one of the boards that slides out then in the lower one thats stable and doesnt slide have a pin thats sticking out. so as it slides out you can put it down into the hole. the one that slides out can move up and down while sliding so you could clear the post if you want it to go out further
  12. hey guys I kind of want to make a camp chair with wood legs, do you think I would need to reinforce the pivot point with some kind of metal sleeve that the bolt goes through? also what would a clean bolt to use? I've seen some wood leg camp chairs and they usually use this type of bracket thing
  13. haha just haven't been able to find a place with as cool of land as we have here and other mountain places seem to be covered in snow most of the year or dead as the desert. kind of tough
  14. yeah my friends in Southlake were trying to convince me to live there. we go there to ride dirtbike and its close to tahoe but I dont know if I could deal with not living in the woods. something nice about being surrounded by trees.
