Finished this painting a couple of weeks ago. Not sure if this would be considered NSFW, please let me know if it is and I can change the tag.
I also have a timelapse video of this painting here for those interested >> https://youtu.be/ZDR2pZJHQqE
I'm thinking about a Hardboard as a 2nd board. My parents live near a fjord/ balticsea so it would make sense to have a board there an my iSUP at my home to use it on lakes here - carrying that bag on the train is not so much fun.
I started SUP last year, this year I had only a 2 weeks in Summer and about 3 weekends to practice (covid 19 stopped me to visit my parents more often :( ) - so I still count myself as a beginner.
So, at the moment I have a Fanatic Fly Air 10'4". The board is okay, could be a little more agile
I am 174 cm / 5ft9in and weight 75kg / 165,3467 lbs
I want an allroundboard with a windsurf funktion - I don`t need to be super fast with the windsurffunction, an extra windsurfboard would not worth it.
What I found was the Mistral Fiji 10 9, what you think of it? Would that be okay? Or would you recommend something else?
I have an electronic gizmo that I'd like to hide behind a panel. But the gizmo has a gauge or meter that I'd like to keep an eye one. Kind of like this
I'd like to cut a nice-looking square hole to match the display. What tools and techniques should I used to do this? I have a drill, a jigsaw, and sandpaper at my disposal.
I'm thinking I'd should drill 4 holes at the corner and try to cut straight lines between the holes.
I've done this before when I didn't have to care about the final appearance. But I recall thinking that if I were to try to hit the outside circumference of each hole, that it'd be pretty hard.
To be safe, I could try to "miss" on the inside but that'd then need a lot of sanding. If I miss on the outside...game over.
Could a router help? I don't have one but this could be a reason to get one. :-)
Before you laugh at the idea, hear me out.
Im building about 75' of 8' tall garage shelves, mostly for for general purpose storage but will include tools and paint etc.
Normally I would just default to osb or a cheap plywood for the construction of the shelves- but with how expensive wood is right now (~$30 a sheet of osb) I'm considering using other materials with smaller spans.
According to the specs, the modulus of rupture is 9,000 psi for a 3/8 panel - which built on a 12" span would give me an working load of ~150 lbs per section . Which should be more than enough for all but the bottom shelf.
I know the construction would be annoying, but the cost savings is pretty dramatic (~60%). And with the size of my project the difference is pretty staggering.
On paper the math works out, but I want it to work in real life.
