    Great stuff. good idea with the paper pattern, easy to change with a pencil and eraser before you do the cut on the wood. The nice thing about the build it did't break the bank as the saying goes.I live up in Canada and these little teardrops are outrageously expensive ( the Rv centers are laughing all the way to the bank ) I think your daughter will enjoy your work of love.

    Thanks for the reply . ya money is money if it was free that would be great. But your investment is low in all reality. As I mentioned these little things can go for $23.000 up here , cough cough! Not for this camper! I think she will enjoy it or does enjoy it.

    Adjustable Height Sit/Stand Walnut Desk

    Looks very good . Had a ?, Is there any reason why one could not apply walnut to the exposed inner square tubing when it is lifted? How much clearance is there between the slide fit of the tubing? . If this could be done it would give the unit a full walnut or wood of choice look. Where I live we have a good supply of sequoia and solid tables go for up in the stratosphere amounts of money and non adjustable. This is elegant in looks and a sequoia look would be beautiful indeed also. Thanks for a good post.

    Build Your Own Electric Car!

    IT DEPENDS what you mean by nothing. Ask a physicist about a vacuum, the very definition of nothingness for most of us, and they will tell you it is pulsing with activity. According to quantum theory, in a vacuum wave-like fields are constantly fluctuating, producing particles and their antimatter equivalents that fizzle in and out of existence. So even in the depths of interstellar space, there is plenty going on in what we call zilch.This idea leads to some outlandish predictions.

Their proximity limits the wavelength of fluctuations in that space, creating a for...

The phenomenon became known as the "Casimir effect".It’s a weakling force but it has been detected.

    I guess there is a use for everything in life, but these balls are just out right big and ugly! What one could do is paint them to match the surrounding colors and decor unless you want them there balls to stick out like a sore thumb for all to see.

    Adjustable Saw Horses

    Nice job, the adjustability is a plus, but I always have a issue with stability on saw horses, with the legs to the horizontal board.Kind of under engineered in design at those points. ( which is the most important ) There never is enough support there. There kind of good when new but then things start to get loose as you use them more and even worse in a commercial application. screws give , bolt holes elongate , glue gives out and so on even though this unit looks nice it looks pretty unsupported in those areas for good long stability over time. Do you think it will pass the rock and roll test over time ? But it is a good looking pair of horses.
