I doubt they're empty. The empty cans go to the recycler to buy more full cans.:D

Re: Build your own cabinets

Shows ya what you guys know, I don't drink macro-swill, so no cans here, and I don't drink bottled microbrew either. I bottle in 1/2 gallon growlers because if it's worth doing, it's worth doing RIGHT! LOL

I get empty 12 ouncers as I need them from friends, which isn't often.

Speaking of brew, it's time I do a batch of pale ale, I'm getting tired of the stuff at the pub.

It depends on what you want to do annd how high-end you want your cabinets to be before going for. Wish you luck!

Man...I was just checking and this thread is only at 250..something. What happened to the good old days when we were over 1,000?

Hey does anyone remember GH's recipe for filler?

BTW...is it true that the caloric content of beer is driven almost entirely by the alcohol content?

Re: Build your own cabinets

In the good old days, you were actually working on your projects and posting.:p;):D

Goldie's been busy and hasn't stopped in lately. I'm sure he will when he sees this and will be able to answer the filler question.

No, there's more to beer, particularly home brew, than alcohol that ads calories. You're not working on love handles are ya Walt? ;)

Re: Build your own cabinets

Doh....first DW busts my chops and now Spruce!!!?? Hey...I have been pursuing "other interests" :D

Love handles???...I never lost them. I see it more as a "energy ring" that I can sustain life off of when the apocolypse hits. I started thinking maybe if I cut back on the brewsky I might actually get down to a reasonable weight. I have really been into Bear Republic's Racer 5 lately. As far as I can tell each 12 oz bottle is about 210 calories. I simply drink far too much of it. I need to start drinking crap beers...which have about 1/2 the calories. Of course, then I will start to hate the taste of beer then the problem is solved entirely.

Re: Build your own cabinets

For the love of God, don't go back to macroswill!:eek: I can't say as I can approve your tastes in Bear Republic either, but any beer that isn't macroswill is a step in the right direction. I was at the BR brewery a few weeks ago and not impressed with the establishment not the beer. No accounting for folks' tastes I guess. ;):D

Re: Build your own cabinets

Spruce...I thought I had expensive beer tastes. Racer 5 goes for $11+tax for a six pack around these parts. So not only am I getting fat...but broke as well :)

Off one of your posts, I discovered a beer called Aladash (or something like that) that is and IPA aged in old whiskey barrels. That stuff is like $19 for a 28 oz bottle. It is amazingly good though. Even my brother in law (the family beer snob) liked it.

Re: Build your own cabinets

Beer is expensive everywhere due to the shortage of hops and grains. I'm hoping this year will cure the hop shortage, who knows when the grain problem will correct itself. The second problem is that craft brews have gained popularity in the last few years, so much so that the number one swill producer has turned to making "craft" brew, trying to dominate yet another market.

Re: Build your own cabinets

Hi All!!

I am in the market for a #4 smoother plane. I have decided I need to get over my fear of hand planing and get with the program. Too may of my drawer front have mill marks on them (of course I did not notice until they are installed)

Does anyone have a suggestion on where to buy...besides directly from Lie-Neilsen?

And do you guys like the bronze version over the cast iron models? My low angle jack plane does have spots of rust on it...which kills me. Seems like the bronze version would fair better in that respect. It seems crazy to spending $350 on a tool I have no confidence in using correctly. Even my low angle jack plane (which I assume is a good tool) gives me fits sometimes. I think I need to buy a book on setting up and tuning hand planes. Any suggestions?

-Walt
