^Another fantastic piece! Your skills are off the charts. Amazing.

I can understand how you feel when you know that you will never see some of your pieces again. Try to get over it by knowing that your art is enjoyed by many and sometimes needs to find a new home.

Thanks Ron!
That is true, and it is rewarding to share what I made, with one chip at a time.

I'm also working on a chiller, because the "cold" water in my region is not very cold. A month ago, the cold water tap was a reasonable 68F, but right now it's 75F, and according to my historical brewing logs, I can expect 85F "cold" tap water. So I've designed a chiller system. That's a separate project, but it's related in that if I take summer sauna's, I'm going to need some serious chill to offset the heat.

That looks great! I know what you mean about summer water temps. Once our water heater went out in August. It was fine- the water was easily warm enough for a shower until the repair guy could get around to it.

DW's friend saw some wall art that she liked in a nautical themed restaurant. She is decorating her new place in a beach theme, so I created something similar in white.

It's really great, At first I thought the one on the white wall was the one you created.
But then looking at the outlets on the wall, felt the white paddles was perhaps the one you created.

Of the two, I like the background on the white paddle one, makes stand apart from the rest of the wall.

Got the new pantry finished. Had a new AC/furnace system installed back in April, one of the requirements was to get the furnace out of the closet next to the kitchen and master BR, just too noisy. Since the old furnace closet is next to the kitchen it was a good location for a pantry. First photo is the closet just after the furnace was removed, had to buy a new door and do some demo to remove the old platform,material cost maybe $300.

Get rid of a noisy furnace. Gain some new storage space. A win-win. Plus it looks great!

Finally got the video edited and published. I'm using "OpenShot" and it's quite a chore to use on long videos (43 minutes). I actually had to make 5 separate "projects", then join them all to make the long final product video. It's not something I expect many people will be interested in watching, but when I looked on youtube, I didn't find many sauna install videos for pre-cut kits that had all the details, so I figured I'd throw my very non-professional version up there.
