    Solar is awesome if you have the space and the sunshine. I tried for years to convince my dad to build one on his property but his wife had put a moratorium on new buildings "cluttering" up the property.

    The head snapped off when I tried to take it back out. The rest is wedged up in there pretty good. :confused:

    Just needs some finishing sanding on the sides. Should I leave it lighter with no finish? Or darken it up with a finish?

    See if you can grip the exposed threads with the chuck of a drill and use the drill to run it through. Great work Mollie, and what a blessing to have access to your friends shop.

    It looks great. My comment on the first one was a compliment and that I saw it as a work of art.

    Going to the mill today. I'll ask them about the kiln drying services. :)

    Should I try any new wood species today?? Recommendations?
