Failure under dynamic loading could really ruin your night.

comment How do you secure wood framing to a concrete basement floor?
@Doresoom, I'm wincing thinking about that.

comment How do I prevent my screen door from opening too far?
Note that you'll want BOTH. The closer will (if working properly) close the door and reduce the chances of the wind blowing it all the way open. The chain is mainly there to protect the closer.

comment Is my rapidly failing foundation dangerous?
This is scary. I would get out now. Stay with friends or check into a hotel. Shut off your gas, water, and electricity, and THEN figure out what's going on.

comment Good technique for squaring-up hardwood edges?
Yup. A good plane and a shooting board should make quick work of these.

comment How many CFM for a range hood do I REALLY need?
Great info. It would be attached to a wall, and a 30" range in a not-huge kitchen, so I think the BTUs are the key. So for four 16k BTU burners, 640 CFM would be minimum. I can't seem to find any info on how many BTU the oven in one of these things can burn, but then again I don't think I'll ever have all four burners on high and the oven at 550. What about make-up air? Would say an 800 CFM hood be OK if I typically run it on low, and open a window if I am stir frying or blackening a fish?

comment How can I drill a hole in a small stick of wood?
Typically raw shafts are 32" or so to allow them to be trimmed to the exact length needed (which depends on how far you draw your bow).

comment How can I temporarily partition a large open space to create another room?
I suggest you look at a blog like Apartment Therapy. They often have examples of things people have done with similar small spaces, especially in studio apartments (one large room rather than a separate bedroom, so people tend to put up dividers to partition the room).

comment How do I control a heat lamp with a thermostat?
I was picturing something like a proofing box, i.e., big enough to proof a few loaves. Something like that would be about the size of an oven, maybe a little bigger.

comment How do I control a heat lamp with a thermostat?
I think a space heater would put out way too much heat for this.

comment How do I make a pull out drawer?
Point taken, I mean to say it's the same as any other drawer (other than the obvious considerations to keep from interfering with the door).
