Damn! I'll be at work. I'll just have to settle for a glass of wine in the evenings before bed.

I do, but in moderation. And never when it may conflict with work.

Don't anybody get the idea I have anything AGAINST somebody having a drink, now.

I just don't like the taste of beer, and a couple of ulcers made having a drink of anything alcoholic a less-than-pleasant experience. The price I pay the next two or three days just ain't worth it.

I remember one Thanksgiving, in years past, my father-in-law had found this sparkling raspberry wine. THAT was GOOD! lol... If I found a bottle of it, I'd probably have to have a little with Thanksgiving dinner.

I'm a big fan of beer (Sam Adams Lager, Yuengling Lager and Black & Tan, New Castle, Lazy Magnolia Pecan Ale) and some wines, but never developed a taste for hard liquors, although I do enjoy a good Bloody Mary and an Applebee's Mud Slide .

Steve, the door is always open for you as the Brewery Headquarters in Arizona as well. Lots of flying space as well as some of the darkest and clearest skies for viewing stars you could want. Just think of what we could build with a 1800 sq/ft shop!

Hi Ed,

Yes, the hollow core door is a great building surface. They are flat and light weight and only about $20 at Home Depot. I bought one when I started my OlyIII build. That and glass tables yield very true components.

I gotta say, I MUCH prefer having a surface that takes pins readily. Trying to push pins into an actual wood surface is something I tried, but it didn't work for me at all. I like my ceiling tiles. And, after all, they can be laid on TOP of any flat surface. I've never had a problem with one of them not laying flat, even if it is a bit warped when I first bring it home. Lay it out, and after a couple of humid days, it's not sticking up anywhere. (But I tend to tape the edges down anyway.)

And they're handy to cut. I get 24 x 48 inch Armstrong acoustic tiles, which have a flat back, and if I need something longer than 48 inches, I can cut off a section of another tile and just lay it next to the first one, as long as the underlying surface is large enough. (I have a counter in my house that is a little low for building, but is exactly 2 feet wide and 8 feet long.) There may be some projects that isn't enough space for, but I don't think I'll be building any of those.

Hey Owl,

I don't pin my parts down as it distorts the wood. I weigh all my parts down with dominoes and other articles. Dominoes also give you a quick 90 for setting ribs .
