Wood salvaged from old kitchen bottom door's horizontal parts... 45mm thick . Lol I didn't charge the lady to hang her new door, I just took the old one... wood is soooooooooo expensive these days.

Default Wonderfull place..this is what i like to watch


do not like those clean things....those pretty benches seems to me
that the guy is lazy....hummmm...maybe a "simulator" guy...living with virtual.....ahahahah.

I am thinking what to do with a virtual girl...they know probable.

Real work, real creativity, using junk...this is clever....well..at least i think this way to protect myself.

We have to do that...even living with garbage....we have to think we are the "king of the garbage"

hehe.....goooooood man!

regards,

Carlos

Wood, uncle Charly, is almost never garbage... it's life was probably just as important than yours and mine, and the tree proabaly did more good than the two of us combined...

But the big diffirence, or maybe similarity between wood and people is, the ugly is only skin deep... just take off the outer few mm, and beatifull, strong, proud, new wood sees the light for the first time. When I'm done you won't be able to tell it is not brand new wood... except it wond bend and twist like young wood still has to do... its been in the sun and rain for 10 years allready.

I sometimes feel like crying when I see the pieces of wood people trow away, or make fire with... noone seems to have any skills to do anything with anything... not a trait my family shares... my grandfather build his own ocilloscope in the days of valves and tubes... brilliant man like Einstein smart. And he had metal lathes etc... whole family very creative... just not very fertile... I am literaly the last male of my branch of the family...

But who cries for the trees when they are gone? Thats why I treat it with respect and bring it back to life.

Default I feel the same...you can see in this image.. i was searching for nature images

To upload to our common friend Klaas Veenstra, when i found that...people already cutting wood to Saint Peter and Saint John parties...Christian celebrations when people ligth fires as a traditions.

The problem is that wood is rare... it is the ancient Brazilian Red wood...used to Bowl and sometimes to produce arrows... flexible and resistant rare wood...the one people have extracted red paint to clothing in fourteen century...one of the main products extracted from brazil by Portuguese, Spanish, Holand, French and English pirates.

Portuguese, those days were "official" here...not really pirates, but doing piracy anyway.

I use all piece of wood i have.

I hate that they want to burn that wood.... people around had not conscience and police is taking care of their own (personal) problems...a pitty.

regards,

Carlos

Default I found, today, some pieces of wood...not really wood...low density fiberboard

I think is the name....we call "aglomerado" here...pieces of wood and glue that is dried under several tons of pressure.

Not MDF, that is made with sugar cane powder...this one has small pieces of "pinus"..... pine may be the name for you...white pine tree.

Than i put into use those pieces of wood and an old speaker made by Brazilian Bravox...down the eigthies....it is an 8 ohms 30 watts unit...high compliance and nice sonics..full range unit....lovely sound....the standard speaker used into several sound systems here...from Sony, Technics, Aiwa, Philips,Gradiente and many chinese new brands that invade our market here with nice quality, reasonable sonics and very low price.

See the image.... i will listen it with Dx amplifier...but i am afraid of the power.

The speaker back is opened to air.... as it will work against the wall..the distance will tune it to 35 hertz.....it has a natural ressonance around 46 hertz.... despite full range...nice bass the one provide.

Yes..that tape will be remove as soon the white glue dries.

regards,

Carlos

Default That tape is to keep panel in place while the white glue will dry.


This enclosure was fixed using only white glue..that Universal one..used to school works and to wood furnitures...cheap here. around 4 dollares a litter.

That tape will be removed and panel will be sanded and will receive some tranparent varnish.

The speaker was repaired by me... i have made, manually, the coil that was burned.

Glue applied using fingers.... in brazil we do not use those nice pistols to glue...those things are for the first world.

regards,

Carlos

Default Here is the image of the rarity, this nice speaker...very rare..difficult to see them


You have to buy old sound systems to remove this driver...nice unit.

Dx amplifier will sound nice with this one..for sure.

My dear Aussie friend Rabittz will be happy watching those images.

regards,

Carlos

Good to see you feel well enough to work on your DX-amplifier Nordic

Wood is a lovely material, as it matures it only gets better.
A tool i have used many times to revitalize wood is a paint-stripper.
It is invaluable for removing layers of paint or removing the top-layer of an old piece of wood.
In Holland it is often used for removing clearcoat-lacquer from old oak sailboats.
Biggest drawback is the blisters it causes in your hands, the trick is to keep it sharp at all times.

its like they say, you can first take 10 minutes to sharpen your axe, or take an hour to chop down a tree.
