I'm working on a project that involves a flat disk with a hole in the middle as a structural element.  OD=6", ID=4".  I think it would look nice if I carved it to look like a clock face, with Roman…Continue

Profile Information

Greetings! I am Thaddeus H. Oddington, scientist, adventurer, gentleman. In real life, I'm a mechanical engineer who builds life support systems for a living. I have had a lifelong interest in making things that do something, so my plan is for all my adornments to serve an actual purpose. I'm just getting started with not even a waistcoat to my name as yet.

Speaking of which, I'm trying out variations of my chosen appelation, so if you see one you particularly like or dislike, let me know.

A stitch un-picker should get those pockets open. It's quite common for the pockets to be sewn shut on new garments, especially high quality ones. It keeps the garment shape better. It took me ages to realise my nice blazer actually had *real* pockets and not just faux openings!
