      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Hey thanks, guys!

 

And, Coulior, I'm sure your project came out great, too. Slate can drive you to distraction if you're a perfectionist... :crazy:

This prolly ain't the place to post it, but Couloir, you need to go back to your previous style of avatar pics. I'm just sayin'...

Sherri, I thought the deal was done until I realized that what I thought was straight in the beginning, ended up being anything but square. Custom cut...custom cut...custom cut. It finally worked out. But only with the help of several, and I do mean SEVERAL Mirror Ponds.

 

Thread drift: I want to make sure Bug's internet surfing at work is as safe as possible. I can't live with the fact that my seemingly innocuous, yet provacative avatar, could potentially affect his livelyhood. :laf:

Yep, I can relate about the slate(and the beer ;) ). Not that ceramic tile is ever perfectly square, but at least you've got a decent shot at something being straight. Did you seal your slate before grouting? If not, don't worry...you only make that mistake once. :crazy:

 

 

And I agree with Sobo and High. Bring back the eye-candy avatars. Dude in the current one is not my type at all.

Bug's job can't be all that if he's surfing cc.com at work. Oh, wait, that's true for just about all of us! :laf:

 

Still, you're right. Wouldn't want him to lose it for our sake.

Did I miss the thread somewhere recently wherein Bug loses his job because of Couloir's avatar pics? Can someone catch me up to speed (linky, plz) so I don't appear so outta touch? OKTHNXBAI!

Once again that's some great stuff Sherri!

 

I'll be happy when I put some new windows in my place, but that's simple compared to the stuff you're doing.

Thank you, Couloir, for clueing me in on the Bugster's employment woes with respect to your avatar pics.

 

And HUGE thanks for returning to your "standard" stash of avatars. :rocken:

Just put the finishing touches on this one. It's a more detailed variation of the original shown at the beginning of the thread, and includes a snazzy log frame.(that was a fun challenge) It's hefty, though--measures 3' x 4' and weighs 35lbs. :o

 

FYI for Rmncwrtr: you'd like working with the finish I used on this(for your next project ;) ).

It's called "Tried and True Wood Finish". It's completely non-toxic(you could finish salad bowls with it) and soooooo easy to apply. Just rub it in, buff, and repeat.

That is really sweet! Fabulous, in fact! You're a Jedi Master, Sherri.

wow i didn't know there was a problem w/coulouir's standard avatars. hmmmm. i look forward to the ever changing variety of interesting pics he uses. Can’t imagine how they’d be a problem at work?

 

 

Sherri, that’s an absolutely amazing creation. 

Gorgeous, Sherri! I love the frame. Definitely worth the challenge!

 

Cool about that finish. IF, big IF, I ever do something like this again, I'll have to give it a try.
