Had a pool company come out a couple of weeks ago to check out our lot under construction. They sent over some models today and want to sit down to talk pricing. That can't be a good sign.

Thanks for the link, they list a couple vendors I hadn't shopped. I know it's been gaining a footing with designers, it seems durable and obviously Pinterest as hell. I was just curious if the sealant needs to be reapplied often for a shower floor.

Looking for a recommendation for a good microphone and boom. Wall or ceiling mount, need to put one in my workshop so I can start teaching online classes on woodworking.

Have you considered a wireless lavalier mic?
post #5135 of 5749
I'm concerned that a mic that attaches to my collar won't stay attached for long.

Is there an untapped market for shirtless woodworking videos?

Possibly I'm over thinking this and the one that goes on my collar will work fine.

Get the lav. You will probably be moving all over the place and the sound will suck with a locked off boom.

The Professional.

 

Btw, oil or water based finish for hardwood floors, guys?

I went with oil on oak, I was told you don't need to reapply it as often. Used brand called BONA. Their color pigments for parquet floors would work with either oil or water based finishes.

Depends on the wood, for a wood in which I want to preserve the lightness I would use a water based finish, but I would use oil on anything I want to darken.

So the price was actually not so bad and more reasonable than expected. Thinking of waiting until spring 18 though just for an additional safety factor with the kids.

Just completed refinishing one of three doors sections to the patio. Fine sanded, sprayed down and wiped off, coat of Minwax. Man, I hate doing this shit.
