snowbite: Mmmm Jan 21, 2020 3:23:23 GMT
christain: Just tried a sample of my boss's home brew beer....FABULOUS. :P Looks like chocolate milk, but tastes like Heaven. A very dark beer that I think would almost be better served at room-temperature in a horn. 8-) Jan 21, 2020 2:53:02 GMT
Brother Nathaniel: It doesn't have to be that one of course, but any similar design would work. Jan 21, 2020 1:18:44 GMT
snowbite: I never would have thought of the Christmas tree stand. 85 bucks though? Jan 20, 2020 23:16:54 GMT
Brother Nathaniel: My 2 stands are ghetto but they work. A quick and easy/dirty way to make a stand is simply to grab a 4x4 and stick it in this: www.amazon.com/Goliath-welded-steel-Christmas-Tree/dp/B01MYM9Z8X and fill spaces with sand,concrete or plaster of paris. Jan 20, 2020 20:25:36 GMT
snowbite: All four spokes are connected to each other with deck screws through the ends. Only two of the spokes are bolted to the socket. Length of each spoke is 18" Jan 20, 2020 19:31:03 GMT
snowbite: bottom view: www.dropbox.com/s/otqqd8ng6e1bxzp/base_bottom.jpeg?raw=1 Jan 20, 2020 19:29:36 GMT

snowbite: I'll take a pic Jan 20, 2020 19:02:22 GMT
theophilus736: Snowbite how are you attaching the spokes? Looks like there's only room for two on that amazon product. Jan 20, 2020 18:25:07 GMT
snowbite: attach 2x4s for base spokes. Make a few different lengths of 4x4 and you can swap them out for different heights. Jan 20, 2020 15:26:34 GMT
snowbite: I got one of these amazon.com/dp/B0026T7AZG/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_U_CyCjEbVVPJW6P Jan 20, 2020 15:25:17 GMT
snowbite: that would only make it 10.5 inches wide at the base. Not very stable. And heavy to boot? Jan 20, 2020 15:22:07 GMT
sacredcompass: I recently got 12 feet of 4X4 pressure treated lumber for a DIY tameshigiri stand, was wondering if I could get away with just joining the wood together in a clustered/pillar formation where they're all standing upright with the taller 4x4 in the middle Jan 20, 2020 13:56:56 GMT
Brother Nathaniel: I have wrapped them in tatami and then soaked for 24 hours and then the very center of the dowel is still a bit dry. I believe soaking them before helps a bit to soak them through properly for a more proper "live bone" analog. Jan 19, 2020 23:42:24 GMT
Brother Nathaniel: Oh these dowels work great as tatami cores! It even makes the rolling of the tatami easier as you are wrapping it around it. But I would say to soak it at least half a day before you use wrap it in the tatami( and then soak again) to make sure it's not dry Jan 19, 2020 23:41:05 GMT
lioconvoy: Thanks! I was looking for something that would act as the "core" of my tatami rolls! That will work perfectly! Jan 19, 2020 23:26:54 GMT
Brother Nathaniel: I'm a big fan of the newspaper rolls. I would say they are approximately 1.5x as difficult as the equivalent tatami thickness. I like these also, soaked for a day. www.amazon.com/Wooden-Dowel-Rods-Unfinished-Woodpecker/dp/B01C4MVA1E Jan 19, 2020 22:37:57 GMT
snowbite: Tightly rolled newspaper. Soak before cutting Jan 19, 2020 21:58:27 GMT
lioconvoy: Hey guys; what makes a good bamboo substitute for mat cutting? I'm almost out. Jan 19, 2020 17:41:02 GMT
