    Man Cave Project

    Complete.

    I had looked at pool table lights and they were all expensive and boring looking. I had an R6 fairing laying around and Stephanie was nice enough to hook me up with another one. I didn't want to use the 12V bulbs and convert using a power supply so I searched for 110V bulbs. Found 75W halogen mini candelabra bulbs that looked like they would fit the bill as well as sockets. Wired them in with a dimmer switch and hung the fairings with chains and voila! Super happy with how they came out!!!

    Re: Man Cave Project

    I just don't get it...

    google says it was the battle flag, not the bonnie blue

    1.) looks cool?
    2.) you're from the south and it's a remembrance of people who died in the civil war from the south, or a family member?
    3.) you're from the south and it's supposed to associate w' southern heritage, namely sacrifice and honor?
    4.) the south never "lost" the war and will rise again?
    5.) really into the 1950's when southern whites were dissatisfied w' federal government?
    6.) you're a redneck woman, you ain't no high class broad
    7.) goes well w' your daisy dukes

    When you can ride a dirt bike for more than 100ft with the motor running I might be concerned with what you think.

    Re: Man Cave Project

    I don't remotely get the negative reaction to the battle flag. If you like it fly it. Whatever.

    I like the idea of headlights for the table. From the pictures it appears that there is a LOT of directional light and that there is a lot of contrast in the light levels on the table.

    Looks fun. Good for you.

    flying that flag is essentially like truck nuts, but for your basement.
    And even though sav hurt my feelings, the flag is way dumber than going full retard at iomtt.

    You got bigger problems than the flag. Clean those boxes up and get a TV, tiger!

    Also in the first picture on the right there is a shadow that looks like a giant bottle of booze. What is that?

    Don't really have anywhere else to put the boxes and need those for selling stuff online.

    But I do have the TV on lock and you can see the mystery bottle in here.



    And the messy project side.



    And the heat source.

    Any concerns about storing wood indoors and termites?

    Nah. If there are logs while I'm throwing them in that have bugs in them I burn them right away. My parents have done this for 20 something years and never had a problem.

    They're only stripper poles if they turn.

    As for the flag, heritage not hate. I'd fly the Bonnie Blue though, not as contentious.

    I think one of those table lights blew past me on the outside of T9. There was a rev-limiter in use too.

    That's really cool, I wish my basement was big enough for a pool table.

    As many as he wants, as long as he cremates them one at a time in the wood stove after he's done with them.

    Fuck that. My parents own a swamp and the family farm has a few backhoes and bucket loaders and a bulldozer. They'll never find em.
