  1. Also, screws with some sort of hex head rather than Philips.
  2. I have one of these. It's been fine, though quiet is relative. Quiet compared to other air compressors.
  3. Tapped holes with machine screws would also work.
  4. 20 climate photographs that changed the world: https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2022/nov/05/20-climate-photographs-that-changed-the-world
  5. https://www.investopedia.com/bullwhip-effect-definition-5499228
  6. Also add little feet so air can circulate on all sides
  7. The chair looks great! I don't think there is a thickness that won't warp, but using quartersawn wood of any thickness will help a lot.
  8. Maybe they're under the apple crisp I sent ...
  9. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/João_Gilberto_(album)
  10. Dovetails in oak is no small feat. But how sad to put that much effort into a bed for one.
  11. You guys must have used very different sapele than I did
  12. Here's a small desk that goes with the table from above. To make the legs adjustable, I cut mortises in the ends of each leg and I simply press fit different size blocks in them to account for the floor (in a 125 year old house) being out of level. The wood is the same brown oak, but the finish is a soap finish so it appears a bit lighter. The top is a scrap of solid surface, and the corner joints were made how they were to provide corner support. I also wanted to say that I set every one of those ~3000 tiles (a skill I learned from @swt61).
  13. Japanese milk bread (or pain fesse) and some chevre, roasted potato, and dill quiche.
  14. You might try Corian remnants for these. https://www.solidsurface.com/
  15. Something else. This is a cube made for no particular reason - just thinking through an idea. This was a more hand tool intensive project, facilitated by the use of cypress which is very east to work.
  16. More power tools than hand tools, and primarily on the table saw. I use an incra positioner and a custom ground dado blade. I like doing stuff with hand tools but I am nowhere near good enough with them.
  17. The base is birch which I get locally, because birch. The brown wood is English brown oak which is white oak from England that has been killed by a fungus that turns it brown. It's from https://www.hearnehardwoods.com/oak-english-brown-lumber-2/ I used it for my kitchen cabinets, and that bundle in the yard was one of 5 of those I bought. Pics of that later as I am still finishing the cabinet doors. And a detail on how the leveling feet work ...
