In my view, ash is nicer than oak and can be finished to a smoother surface with less effort. Nice table.
The most awesome hack for steel wool was an instructable where a guy stuffed 0000 wool into the end of an automobile brake line with the other end connected to a needle valve attached to an oxygen cylinder. He fed oxygen through the line then lit the steel wool causing the entire brake line to become a welding or cutting lance. No acetylene, no combustible gases, just oxygen. Video was amazing.
Funny, there was a guy in the NW woods who made giant bigfoot strap on soles. He would stomp around popular lake and stream sandy or muddy shores to get the tourists all a twitter. He loved local media claiming that his bigfoot prints were the real thing.
Chinese website offers padlock picks that work on all types without entering the keyhole or dialing for combinations. These slide into the small gap around the shackle on the opening side and depress the internal latch. $5 for a complete set of quick and simple picks. Lose your key or combination? These are very fast, need no talent, and just work. To the complainers, a claw hammer will rip out most hasps in half a second, this is much easier than picking any lock so stop complaining that only crooks want to know how to open padlocks. Crooks don't have the patience or talent when a crowbar will do the job.
