Carpenter and Contractor turned web developer.

I love building things with my hands, but I also love the mental challenge of programming. I am mostly interested in online web development using HTML/CSS with javascript/jQuery and PHP and really trying to master these things.

I spend my free time reading about and writing PHP. I am interested in design patterns and practice.

comment How to secure vinyl post caps?
I would also try silicone method. Still removable if you really need to. But should keep them on reasonably well. I would not say it is super strong though.

comment What kind of floor is this?
That is NOT bamboo. Doesn't really look like Oak, could possibly be Maple...

comment Should my first power saw be a circular or jig saw?
This is probably the best answer. I'd just add that jigsaws are better suited for cutting curves or smaller shapes in thinner material, like sheet goods (plywood). Honestly, I would not buy a circular saw for less than $99. For Jigsaws it looks like there is more of a selection of the budget level saws in half-decent brand names around $50. But still the most used saw for almost anything but fine woodworking would be the circular saw.
