    I think crowdfunding has created a lot of throwing good money at bad nowadays. 15yrs ago if you had a neat idea that needed a few $100k to get off the ground you would have had to seek a few large...

    Cabinets and counter tops do not go in assembled, and they are not going to come out assembled either. (with rare exceptions maybe*) You will be hard pressed to find someone willing to move that due...

    Most issues like that are superseded by laws making it impossible for those clauses to be enforceable I would say. Companies put it there knowing that people who fight it will win, but other lazy...

    I just heard steel is at ~$65 a ton here currently. I haven't taken much in myself in a long time, but the idea of just throwing scrap in the trash bugs me. It's usually not too hard to find a half...

    Just start reporting people to unemployment if they won't come back to work, or at least make it clear to them that you plan to?

    After watching more of the video it certainly looks very well built, and the short sections of sheet he is bending are far from causing any stress on that frame surely. I wish it showed closer how he...
