              yup, it was
              (though I had to read it 2 or three times ... did he really say _that_?)

              all _good_ puns get a groan.

              (bad ones get something that probably would be censored by the
              language police-)

                  very cool. i wish i new alittle bit about woodworking, maybe someday when i have a real shop of my own. Wood just adds another cool texture to steel projects. Here is a TV stand i built a while back.

                    hi-fi stand

                    that looks very nice. really neat and minimalist. if someone wants to copy this design or make something similar, but not use wood for the shelves, why not use marble slab cut too size. i'm sure you could get some cut too size in a kitchen fitters shop or even where they make headstones for graves.
                    these places always have off-cuts they cannot use for anything else, once their main job has been made. i have done this for all my hi-fi tables i have made over the years and found the shop people only too happy to offload their waste pieces of slab. they have even been happy to cut and polish these offcuts too my requirements, provided they have enough of the type i want.
                    i don't know what you would spend on marble over in your part of the world, but i have usually paid around 20-35 per square foot (depending on the quality) so a shelf of around 14"X18" could cost anything from around 35 up. using marble will also make the hi-fi sound better, due too the inherent damping effect it has on vibrations. something which wood does not normaly have a big effect on (for hi-fi anyway)
                    if you are a bit skeptical about the effect, try a bit of stone slab under the cd player first, but remember that marble is more dense and will work a little better (and look a lot better)
                    i have also found that molten lead in the frame works wonders, but you need to do this outside wearing a mask and goggles, NOT in the garage or other enclosed space. you WILL give yourself a headache otherwise (at least) or at worst, give yourself lead poisoning. the headache is just the first warning. so be carefull and plan what you are going to do properly.
                    i have made at least 8 tables this way (at last count) with no ill effects. but you can't be too carefull when using molten lead. anyone need advice, let me know.
