        The nap is no longer an issue with me,,,

        Just got my self tinting mask.,

        You asked about the welder. It is a Canadian tire brand. So not available in the USA. They have a great reputation. It is a wire fed only running on 110. Does two size wire feed. .030 I think and can’t remember the other one,, I know a few people that have them and are very happy,

        Now that I have the mask.. I am gonna get back at practicing,,,

          In the process of finishing off this timber desk, it has turned out pretty well, just need to finish it. I have been looking into using resin to do so, the finished products look insanely cool.

              Thank you, and following a plan, a lot of work went into making the mould to fit the layers of timber too, that was the time consuming part. It's more aesthetic than functional, the top surface has a bit of bounce in it so I need to come up with a way to prevent that on my next one. I am going to try to come up with an entertainment unit following the same kind of design, but more low line, with a tighter curve, and symmetrical like the rounded end, eventually anyway.

                  Is the reason for the bounce because it's not all that thick?

                    Had a friend who wanted to give her husband a set of corn hole Badger boards for his birthday.

                    Just got done with them (they are the exact same as the boards I made for myself a few years ago).

                          The logos are decals - so I can't take credit for that.

                          Decals on, and them poly over them quite a few times. Have never had any issues of the coming off or peeling at the edges. :thumb:

                              Just finished this up today, pretty happy with the result, I think I am going to try and shape some chess pieces to go along with it next.
