    Hey not for nothing, and i will say i have LITERALLY ZERO experience with anything like this, but i was thinking about the "bigger pieces of glass" dilemma. What if you put the glass in some sort of tumbler? Cement mixer comes to mind, so does a washing machine but that doesnt sound safe or practical. Anyway toss the glass in there, let er roll for a while and see if the pieces get more rounded and less large?

    Just a though i had, totally random at bed last night...weird.

    I was thinking along those same lines, maybe using one of those old rock tumbler kits I used to see in Hobby Catalogs when I was a kid...

    As long as they come out flat with straight edges and not roundish it might work.

    Nice countertop, I would not dry grind without a good mask though. You could build a screen with hardware cloth sized to get the size of glass pieces you want to use.

    Herb garden space. Recycled pallets and rebar and scrounged granite. Had to buy the wire fencing.

    I'm building a hippy shack on the back of an '88 Toyota pickup. It's build almost entirely out of reclaimed materials. Hope to have it done this summer.

    It passes my hippy test. I'd love to tour with that thing, albeit the snail's pace it'll have to hold.

    Looks awesome. I don't even want to think about trying to get something like that up to code in JP. So, enjoy it like some can't.

    Lame, but all made by hand and flat/square within about .002" or better.

    Try square, straight edge, and winding sticks.

    Yes they are just fancy measuring sticks, but they're my fancy measuring sticks. I wish I would've practiced some of these skills BEFORE I had built the fancy dining room table.

    Code isn't the right word, I guess. Shakken. 車検 It doesn't translate well. All vehicles have to be OEM (original or exceeding manufacturer) Kind of like a California smog check on steroids. Also, around 12-15 years the taxes on older cards get so substantial that it's cheaper to buy new (especially once you factor in advancements in fuel economy.) The Gov't forces the public into new cars to "stimulate the economy."

    I'm guessing your rig would run an additional 5K in taxes each year. No joke. Only collectors keep projects around. It's a sad state of affairs for me. I built my rig stateside, a '72 Blazer. Grew up wrenching. Tricking out old cars are a hobby I just can't financially justify anymore.

    Wanna be my importer stateside for used (yet OEM) JP cars? I have heaps of them. Most go to Australia/NZ/Singapore. (non-horsepower freaks.)

    Doing this as a part time thing for a client. Hillside regraded with gravel/sand/topsoil, foundation and framing done professionally. Siding, color, and trim boards. Working on finishing the teak cedar in the eaves. Under the awning will have cedar eaves/teak shakes and lights and on the wall above the flashing in the middle of the windows will have teak stained shakes. grass is about 2-4in tall right now. Next step is building a finished second story room above the carports so the windows that are 18ft up are actually usable
