Ho boy. We have some people on the forum that do NOT like things being exchanged without money being involved.
People who use that kind of coded language will argue until they are blue in the face about how it doesn’t mean what you say it means, even though they totally know what they are saying.
My, what a mean-spirited and needless reply (and screenname). Here’s hoping “Beerated” has a somewhat better day today–or at least doesn’t go out of his or her way to kick sand in anyone’s face.
Sherman doesn’t choose to use profanity, however.
At my theatre job (which requires a huge amount of spatial awareness) I see it all the time–people standing in doorways having conversations, stuff like that. I guess it takes all types….
They do have a presence on Facebook though.
That’s the general problem with sanding. The varnish gums up the sandpaper. I generally apply a thick coat of stripper, let it sit, scrape off what I can with a plastic stripper, scrub with lacquer thinner and a green scrubby, then wipe clean with lacquer thinner and a rag. Repeat as needed. Then wipe down with mineral spirits to make sure all of the varnish is gone. It also doesn’t raise the grain.
Penny–I don’t think so. I participated a little bit at the start, and then I saw where it was heading and stopped.
You are so right about that.
Can we please lose tagging? There are enough ways to anonymously harass people without that hokey feature.
Wait, so it’s okay to harangue, but not okay to respond? That sure seems like a double standard.
By virgin, she probably meant “clear” fir which doesn’t have knots in it and is from larger trees, typically old growth. Clear fir is now quite rare and expensive, and yes, it’s beautiful.
I used “awful” rather than “awfully” with some intent–I did so to relay a more folksy or colloquial tone. Clearly the intentional use of vernacular went over the head of at least one reader. He may have even been intentionally trying to find fault in what I said, as he is known for such childish behavior.
I’ll do a blog post with before and after pictures once it’s done.
As far as your cabinets go, if you wanted to see the wood, you’d need to strip all the way down to bare wood. It’s not difficult, it just takes a lot of elbow grease. If you want to PAINT them, on the other hand, I’d remove the doors and the hardware, rough everything up with an orbital sander, and paint away. For cabinets, I think you’re going to want an oil-based lacquer for the durability.
Cedar floors–are you sure they are not fir? That seems more likely. Fir floors were just really common here for a long time b/c of it being a native wood.
I see no problem with that. I stopped commenting on the front side after the switch to FB.
I’m pretty sure they are already open in some capacity. Maybe soft open?
Speaking of, consort and I made our way over to Bourbon and Bones for THEIR hard open last night. Still some kinks to work out, but the fried chicken is perfection.
I get a little “end-timey” right before the Solstice so this…..THIS glorious time where it’s light until 5pm is pure music to my eyes.
It IS tough to see the box, especially on a small screen. Can you change the background color? There’s no contrast. Thanks.
I am replying.
Seems to work!
