      • The people down the street are having a MASSIVE pine taken down. Has to be 2.5-3' in diameter and at least 70 ft tall. It's sandwiched between the two houses and perilously close to both. Close enough that sawdust is all over the roof of one.

        I have no idea how you take down a tree like that even after watching them. I understand it's not exactly rocket science, but my god, one wrong move and someone needs a new kitchen or one of these logs hits and kills someone. I could feel a few of the falls they've had almost two blocks away. Even using ropes, the margin for error in pretty thin.

          Not hard when you know what you're doing and have the proper tools and equipment. Yes, there's always risk involved, but that's true in everything you do.

          • With the number of woodworkers on this board, I thought this would be a good share here: https://youtu.be/m7HxBa9WVis

            An engineer tests end-to-end-grain glue-ups vs side-side and end-to-side joints. He used scientific methods to display the differences. The results will surprise most woodworkers.

            • My wife got distracted by a squirrel on the deck and tripped, backwards onto the dishwasher. She's fine. The new dishwasher isn't. The steel door interior a fairly large dent in it right where the sealing surface is AND where the wheels run. :-(

              I'm hoping I can manage to replace the inner door. And fix the wheel holders on the bottom rack...

                      Joecct warned us that this would happen.

                          So it’s like you’re the PM at home. You didn’t cause the mess, but it’s off the rails and you still can’t really hold the faulted parties responsible.

                            • Attempting to replace the inner door of my dishwasher. Very few instructions available.

                              Also, these clowns used three different Torx sizes and a couple Philips.

                              Just a complete mess trying to keep screws organized.

                                That's a feature, not a bug. That would annoy most people enough to give up and make the service call or just buy a new d/w.
