  2. Musicians and Modelers

    I was a keyboard(synth) player in a band back in the mid 80s, I still keep my hand in with digital virtual synth tools, I have also dabbled in bass (owned an Ibanez SR) and also tried to get my lungs around tennor and alto sax. I have a fair amount of riffs recorded on my HDD. OC.

OC.
  8. Build Log Photography

    Kurt, I find as long as I use trap focus and focus about a third of the way into a subject (if it is inclined front to back or at a diagnal) using my phone cam, this helps to keep more of the subject in focus. OC.
  9. Build Log Photography

    I use an "Old School" Sony Ericson mobile phone as its portable - gets in tight spots - has macro and has a fairly decent lens despite its age. OC.
  10. Ageing Decks

    Thank you for all the replies, I have decided to leave my planks sanded then flat top coated, its easier to do it this way. OC.
  11. Ageing Decks

    Thanks mark, the planks are already fitted on the deck so what ever I do will have to be in a controled manner and kept tidy, I had heard a bout a wire wool and vinegar trick, painting that onto the planks - and making sure they were sealed afterwards. OC.
  12. Follks how do you age your decks on your wood builds, as wood that has been exposed to the elements even if looked after, goes a grey color with age. OC.
