    Will there be any Memorial Day Weekend Charcoal Sales this year?

    Around us they have roped off non essential aisles at WM and Costco, that I know of. Wonder if they consider charcoal essential.

    Coronavirus - Covid 19

    40+ lbs KBB and 4 20 lb propane tanks, I'll survive if the meat supply does. The hard part so far is the meat, I can get it from the butcher but it's sight unseen. They deliver it to the car wrapped in butchers paper. Trying to stay out of all stores, being what they term a senior with immune...

    Adirondack Chairs, kiln-dried fir wood, stain and seal recommendation

    Just ran into this in a refinishing article... See the last sentance. Marine "spar varnish" is much softer than furniture or floor varnish, particularly in the sun or when it is very hot. Some spar varnish brands feel "sticky" when they are hot even after they are fully cured. This is a...

    Slow Keyboard Response Times

    No issues here. From what I've experienced over the years, most slow downs are related to the users computer. If I try and do much soon after booting up the virus scan is running, other times it doing updates. When I worked for a living, things would slow down at SOD and EOD, I always suspected...

    Mini Vortex for Smokey Joe

    The Vortex site shows the mini (Tim's link) is 6" at the narrow end, leaves 4" on either side of the Smokey's grate, enough for wings.

    Coronavirus - Covid 19

    Warning, highly technical terminology... N95 filters out 95% of .3 micron particles, they also make N99, and N100's, not that you can get any of them these days. I use 100's as an asthmatic that has the wrong hobby, woodworking. I gave the few I had to my daughter last week for use in the ICU.

    Coronavirus - Covid 19

    Even if I wanted to wear a mask there's none to be had.

    Black Spots

    Thanks all, seems that although unsightly, it's harmless. I normally resize photos to shrink the file size. Guess there are times I shouldn't.

    Coronavirus - Covid 19

    That's the 2nd forum I read where this article comes up. Here's the link to the actual editorial by Dr Fauci. https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMe2002387

    Black Spots

    I'll find out when I thaw it, as it didn't smell I figured it was okay and froze it for later use. I may even see if I can cut them off.

    Adirondack Chairs, kiln-dried fir wood, stain and seal recommendation

    Tung Oil is a penetrating oil, I use it on paddles so the handle stays with a natural feel. I do reapply yearly.

    Black Spots

    Picked up the attached butt today from a local butcher which is doing curb side service so you don't see what you get till you get home. As you can see, there are blackish spots on butt which I've not seen before, anyone else seen such? Smells fine, was not cyro packed, just wrapped in butchers...

    No wonder they are getting rid of it.

    Adirondack Chairs, kiln-dried fir wood, stain and seal recommendation

    I use Spar Varnish on the canoes I build, not cheap, but this is the good stuff. https://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B0016ZJKDQ/tvwb-20 They make a Rapidcoat that does not require sanding between coats, might be nice on something like a chair that'd be a hassle to sand. I have no...
