Re: Best substitution for Honduras Mahogany

You all forget about splendid american wood known as Black Locust or Robinia Pseudoacacia.
French boatbuilders really love it, rot resistent, local and available without damaging rain forrests.

Re: New Aluminum Designs for CNC at Glen-L

Hi Kevin, Considering dutch approach to thrift (outclassing Scotts:-) they utilized most ecnomical variant, thats for sure. What is even more valid today in the age of epoxy coatings for steel. I guess resistence stems from old prejudices. Welders are evrywhere, i guess main problem is lack of plans...

Re: Greetings from Prague

Still watching, meanwhile life asked for few changes and I have to postpone the building.
