  1. Sure, I just make it a simple principle to avoid sweet things or food that leaves shmoo on/around your teeth. Sugar is a pretty important culprit though.
  2. I'm prone to calculus buildup under my gums which means regular trips to the hygienist. Flossing and avoiding sugary things helps, but it just happens regardless. Problem is, I am likely to have periodontitis now, and the increased systemic inflammation from that puts me at higher risk of heart disease as I age. Joy. I hope that the CBD I take for my anxiety and joint pain (it's working wonders) also reduces inflammation in that respect also. It should just be made commonplace already.
  3. That's a weighty and well-reasoned stance, Drak. I would probably feel a more detailed dislike of this human detritus if I had the time to waste on them As such I can only provide a brief condensed, yet directly cutting commentary on this dreary anchor holding back the progress of good in humanity. Yes, there is likely a number of reasons behind psychopathy and unfettered narcissism and destructive success of these people. I can't handle them though. I have a short fuse for idiocy of most kinds, and can't help but call out fuckery when I see it. Like my boss. He has rampant ADHD, is ruin
  4. Anybody who calls themselves an influencer or accepts being one should be shot around the back of the chemical sheds. These people are the detritus of the modern world. The scum at the bottom of the barrel who insist that they're at the top. Fatuous irresponsible delusional entitled windbag snobs with zero regard for the deleterious effect they have on the easily-influenced. About as inspirational as a dose of diarreoh and only one percent as welcome.
  5. Teenagers put themselves through all sorts of punishment through ignorance like that and bounce back. When you're older and doing it for more than a couple of years of your life, it causes longer term issues.
  6. I tend to leave them well alone since they're absolutely full of shit. "Life is like a box of chocolates; sometimes you get nuts in your mouth"
  7. Most of the work I do with my time these days is to do with the house. I could do with building panels and a breakfast bar for the balcony....
  8. Yep. Exactly this. A lot of spam acts as a ping for your address.
  9. Gah, ballache time. I was testing the new 0,5mm cutters for fret slotting and dropped a bollock on the nut slot. My DXF import from Rhino to WoodWOP for the Homag baked in discrete values for the fret slot depths with respect to the Z base. Cue me copypasta'ing a variable name into the "depth" for each fret slot, click-paste-doubleclick-click-paste with mouse moves between operations. Accidentally caught my nose on the finishing line by pasting the variable name into "distance offset" instead of depth for the slot either side of the nut. Cue the CNC driving a slot 22mm out from the nut in the
  10. Sure thing. PM me here for my email. The 80s circuit in the SB-1000 (passive/active) is problematic in that it requires dual value pots which are not really available commercially. I've always preferred the 70s active-only circuit. To my ears it sounds better, even though the only real difference is in the varitone filter.
  11. Man, that's terrible. I'm unsure whether people keeping their pain inside or the lack of receptivity from the outside is the worst. I do my best to make people I meet know that "I see you". Old people, immigrants, wheelchair users, anybody. Being invisible usually magnifies internal pain and isolation. Being a teenager with inexperience in processing existential or otherwise all-encompassing thoughts is always difficult for so many reasons. It's a sad loss when somebody isn't able to find their way through that for whatever reason.
  12. Nothing as vexating as other people. So what's the thing occupying your building urge right now? Surely your bijou clutchette is pretty complete. What happened to The Wookiee? I forget....
  13. Very clean. No burning, chipping or in fact anything that suggests a manual router! This has all the makings of a sweet project.
  14. No gloss for me. This is going full relic, however it needs to survive for a while as a VH1 Frankie!
  15. The current advisory is to wear safety glasses (eye masks) until further notice.
  16. Sapele and Tru-Oil are a natural combination. I also brazed the brass light extension bars with cross-members, and will add a final centre vertical piece to link the cross-members. Sockets are loose, so a little wonky. There's still a few details to finish at the top, specifically an electrical cover and cable inlet hence why this part is still pretty rough. It doesn't need to be pretty, just functional. The central part of the box was made from the sapwood side of the Sapele boards since it'll never be seen. Unfortunately, sapwood is also pretty fracture-prone and I usually
  17. This is a bit of a rare one in the G&G canon, even though a few commercial repro makers have it in their repertoire. Essentially a Mahogany lantern style light which will be going into our kitchen over the dining table. Photos of the original: I always try and start from the original piece rather than getting quick answers from the repros, otherwise mistakes end up being copied into the copy. Dimensions were altered for our end use and a few key changes based on working methods. Quick Rhino render of the full assembly. Then an artsy
  18. Very very cool. Sam Maloof was a genius and a natural. Seeing his work on the bandsaw showed just how in touch he was with the tools and the materials. One of a kind. Exceptionally clean mortise work; are you using a CNC?
  19. Good news, then! Well, I'm surprised that the CDC are recommending that vaccinated people can go without masks in public....that's strange, and sounds somewhat politicised. Over here vaccinated people are still advised to wear masks since you can still be contagious regardless of vaccination status. Unsure what their methodology was behind that, especially since people can't tell who has and has not been vaccinated. I avoid non-maskers out of caution until the waters are clear again. Be careful!
  20. Well hello. Fancy seeing you here. Whilst we're in one place, let's have a minor update. This is straight off the CNC. Truss rod and fillet glued. DNA added to the headstock after I cut my knuckle along one of the sharp edges. Not the usual DNA (denatured alcohol) but the real stuff this time. I've attached the DXF file I've been using to work from. It might be a little different to what I sent into the wood thanks to tweaking here and there at the CNC console. Essentially this is the flat 2D information. The yellow border defines the workpiece extents, purple lines for
  21. Hey man. How're you doing?
  22. That would be an impressive skill to be around. These are truly unique people.
  23. You mean all, "I thought you said this thing was fast/Watch your mouth kid, or you'll find yourself floating home"?
