Don't get me wrong, Cragman, though it's easy to do.

I've installed hundreds of high end boxes and have only recently tooled up and stuck it out there on the fab end.

The main cabinet maker that I've installed for over the years wouldn't even deliver. Shop only. He made square sh#t, the rest was your problem.

A sixty forth might be exagerating a bit, but I agree, a tight scribe without trashing someone elses art is a great feeling.

Are you flying visually?

You have to be more specific...
Of course I am flying "visually", that's the only way I would be able to control it. If you are asking if I am piloting via line of sight (LOS) and looking at the craft, then no. I am flying FPV (1st person view) and I am using a live video feed...I sit in a chair looking at a 10inch monitor and my airplanes can fly way beyond line of sight, like in excess of 10 miles and up to 10,000 feet... You may know them by another name, drones... You can also use video goggles but I prefer the screen because I wear glasses... check out www.parkflysac.com for the local FPV scene. With enough research and know-how anyone can build one...

Hey, you asked - didn't say it had to be exciting.

Part 2 coming.

Next morning edit: Apparently we found some spray paint as we finished off the pitcher of margaritas at the end of the day - I had to repaint the box white this morning. It looked like vandals had graffiti-ed the whole thing.

Obviously, the drunken marking was a fail. Shoulda just left it as "TOP".

Squish, technically you are breaking the law, aren't you? I'm not gonna rat on you. ;-)
I'm gonna post a related note on the Aviation thread about 400 mph RC sailplanes.

I recently bought a modern camera, and on occasion will post photo's of past projects. I've been a woodworker for over 50 years.

Here is a photo of 2 bowls-one of cherry, the other of burl maple. The table is mid-18th century style, also of cherry wood.

1/64''???

That's a country mile on a crew I did finish work with last year. 1/64'' would get you fired for poor performance.

Tighten up your tolerances!

Peter,

Thanks. I have many more to post. I know this is a form of spraying, but posting this type of stuff may give others ideas for the future. My longest project in duration took over 35 years to complete- my retirement home.
I will post a very long, detailed description of the construction at a later date, once I have the photo's scanned.

Steve, you've been long overdue for posting in this thread!

Are those the same turned vessels you showed me in the Longstack parking lot? It's nice to see some quality bowls outside of the hippy lettuce thread...

Have a healthy and productive New Year!
