    turning wood black spekaers to birch

    kinda running off of rick's idea: if it's MDF, take off the old veneer if you can and sand it down with a fine grit sandpaper. you know if the sandpaper's fine enough when the wood stops becoming "hairy" by feel. then you can just slap this on...

    If you drink soda, what is your favorite tasting "chill"?

    freezer's the best, although i tend not to leave it in there for too long. if i do, the soda will freeze over and could lose a whole ton of carbonation if opened. icing it won't give it that iced effect, but it sure isn't cold enough for my tastes. i say that anything that comes in a can and...

    suggestion for a cheap pocket knife for...

    don't forget to look up gerber as well. i got a gerber multitool, and that thing is pretty robust. the blade is useless, though, as are any blades in any multitool. the scissors portion is stiff and does an extremely good job of cutting pretty much anything. and the squirt is essentially the...
