I've done it...but always with veneers. Its what contact cement is made for. Easy to do....if you practice the lining up the pieces first. I like making a vertical sandwich as gravity keeps the pieces aligned at the bottom. Nearly fool proof...until you get too confident. Bring the pieces together from the bottom to avoid air bubbles rather than as many say to mount by dropping down from above with strips to keep the pieces separate. A roller and then some elbow grease or weight makes the final product a single piece with no air bubbles.

Having posted that, my actual experience, I see no reason at all that just about ANY glue would not work...including those that would allow a long set time so the pieces could be positions after contact is made. Hmmm....years to think the whole contact glue is conceptually a bad product with its instant set. I'll guess and say the advantage is the melding is irreversible...but it would be the same with about any glue from my experience.

Not sure if "just about ANY glue" would hold up too well over a stove?

Eggs: well thats a point. and the grease? ==and moisture from steam...but still...with the entire surface covered..the competing elements would have to be pervasive and long term which would be rare. In a commercial kitchen...yes...I'd go with contact cement...waterproof if memory serves.

I've been watching lots of You tube "how to" videos, which has been really informative.

It's the little things that are going to "frustrate me". For example, kitchen cupboard hinges now need a special tool to drill the right standardised holes. I didn't know that..

I found a kitchen "flat pack" joinery that can cut the wood, laminate it in my colour and drill all the right bits, if I take down a design on graph paper. I'm going to get a quote from them. I hate jobs that drag on because I don't know how to finish them.

Making furniture was an early hobby of mine. I can't even imagine what kind of special drill in needed to drill a hole. I'd love to see a link to the hinges you want to use. Hinges perform a basic function and absent a special need I would simply change the design to use a hinge that takes a standard drill to make. As you are Smart Matt: I don't think you are referring to using a template to make the holes.

Kitchen cabinets: easy to make yourself and you can save a ton of money.

One major life accomplishment I'll never do: build my house in every respect that doesn't take someone on the other end to help lift. A house built with the finest woods and joinery. Never stayed in one place, one job, long enough to be able to do it. could do it now... out of energy. Plus half the joy of the thing was to see it age well in place with minimum maintenance. Hmmm...If I had my life to live over, think I'd get a steady, lower paid, stay put job and invest in making that house. Have to wait for the tantric wheel to turn.

If you were to do it now and needed someone to run stuff past, I'm fairly certain our fromthehills would be happy to abuse advise you through it. I'd say building like that is his thing...

It would be very sensible for me to talk to FromtheHills is he was still around. An experienced person already has simple solutions to all the little problems that baffle me.

I'm putting in a Westinghouse Range-hood and I went looking for a solution to replacing a custom face to the sliding out bit. On the Westinghouse "forum" there were many customer posts complaining the unit had no suction power, immediately followed by a Westinghouse person saying "Did you unscrew the exit valves transport cover?"

Went to get a "gallon of milk" car Friday, just something to make grocery runs when Boss Lady was at work. We went to a place I've bought beaters from several times. The guy who runs the place took us around back to where they were unloading some new arrivals. One of them was a '05 Mazda Tribute S. It was pristine, obviously owned by a little old, it had the owners manual still in the original zipper jacket, and had 57K miles. Bought it immediately after test driving it. Financed it with $154/month payments. Sweet timing. :D

I bought a used egg beater at the Salvation Army bazaar. Three bucks, no manual but obviously owned by a little old who most likely got a heart attack beating her eggs by hand. The seller assured me it had a low mileage and no rust. It was a steal.

I had mine checked a week ago after 15 years. Still 20/20, no glaucoma, no cataracts. but you were recommended Ray Bans? Confirm..... or any specific reason? I think shades combat cataracts...but didn't know they were "recommended" beyond looking cool?

Glaucoma: causes damage before you are really aware of it. More likely as one ages. good to check for it now and then. Many/some...new practices?...provide free screening. Course, its covered in the civilized world.

If you see a large group of Australian public school kids, going on a school excursion, they wear sunglasses and the same sort of hats as soldiers in the French Foreign Legion. I first thought this was a bit silly, but I now know it is sensible. :D

Paragon partitioning software 16.0 is being given away free this month so I d/l the installer for the latest goodness but got a notice I had to install Internet Explorer for the install to complete. "Nice tie in arrangement" is what I thought....but free is free. So..I have IE 9.,0...can't find any upgrade button on the program so use IE 9.0 to download 11.0 from the Microsoft website. Says its downloaded and ready to install...but I can't find the file on my computer. The symbol for "run" or "save" is not where MS says it should be. What to do?????

Of course, I go back to Firefox, download the program, and install IE 11.0. Have to restart my computer to find out if it will work to install Paragon or if I have to downgrade to IE 10.0. This is only one example of how the worlds best software doesn't work. I have dozens of examples.

but grab yourself the Paragon. Its free.

I don`t know about `Ray-Ban` sunglasses - are they `safety glasses`? That is, at what velocity/mass will they not shatter? I only buy eyewear that are safety glasses, since I do not want shattered glass anywhere near my eyes. Available at welding supply/mechanical supply shops.

Thanks for that. That was a piece of USA history I did not know, that has three big, later military players, involved.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bonus_Army
"The Bonus Army was the popular name for an assemblage of some 43,000 marchers—17,000 U.S. World War I veterans who gathered in Washington,....1932, to demand cash-payment redemption of their service certificate"

"At 4:45 p.m., commanded by General Douglas MacArthur, the 12th Infantry Regiment, Fort Howard, Maryland, and the 3rd Cavalry Regiment, supported by six battle tanks commanded by Maj. George S. Patton, formed in Pennsylvania Avenue while thousands of civil service employees left work to line the street and watch. The Bonus Marchers, believing the troops were marching in their honor, cheered the troops until Patton ordered[citation needed] the cavalry to charge them"

During the military operation, Major Dwight D. Eisenhower, later the 34th president of the United States, served as one of MacArthur's junior aides.[17] Believing it wrong for the Army's highest-ranking officer to lead an action against fellow American war veterans, he strongly advised MacArthur against taking any public role

I openly wonder if this was a really stupid idea, because it was only 70-80 years after the American civil War. Having loyal USA soldiers attack other loyal USA ex-soldiers, seems a little bit too close to loyal USA Unionist soldier fighting loyal Confederate soldiers. It would seem to make civil war "a normal thing".

You may note that he also disobeyed President Hoover when Hoover ordered an end to the attacks. A scenario played out later during the Korean War.

My, those uniforms look familiar. Must have been the style of the times, when they still rode horses and maybe mules, who knows.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

You are commenting on their "Jodhpurs" (Kentucky Jodhpurs). I don't really know, but I assume as there were 6 tanks there and a cavalry regiment, both groups considered themselves "cavalry" and dressed accordingly. I do know that Jodhpurs were popular in all armies during WWII, to non cavalry personnel.

Here is Patton with his riding swagger stick, as commander of a tank division. I don't think beating a tank with his stick would make it go any faster.
