This week had many unexpected fires... none of them mine, but people I know like to share their fires :) What's the quote? "Your lack of planning doesn't constitute an emergency on my part"? Something like that!
Anyway, someone made an interesting guess as to what No Comment #2 is based on the first clue: something to do with the TV sci-fi "Stargate". Guess it looks like the chevrons from the show. Hey, I'd probably like that show; I may see if it is available on download.
It reminded me that I took a clue photo earlier this week (pre-fires...), but I needed to wait to post it in case it wouldn't get used in the project. No need for red herrings!
It's getting used and it looks fantastic. If you guess the material (not too difficult), the obvious use isn't how it is getting used. The piece was actually a lucky find and changed the design of the project. The commentary videos after the initial build video will describe the other options; the build video will only include this piece. I learned a lot working with it, too.
At this point, everything is ready for stain and finish before final assembly. Spraying some of the components outside wouldn't have been possible the past two weeks as our highs were just 47ºF. Hard to believe that today the high was 74ºF... I guess the past two weeks were our winter. -groan- need more winter... (send some! please!)
I'm eager to release this video! I hit a major road block on it: I ran out of royalty-free music! Yes, the same instrumentals you've heard in other episodes except with the video at 40 minutes currently, that's a lot of music to find. Found a nice source tonight; not cheap, but not too expensive either. Will post details with No Comment #2 if it works out that I use it.
