    I'm looking for an acceptable substitute for bunting, that tightly woven wool fabric. From what I can find online it is ungodly expensive--I'm talking close to $60 per yard plus shipping. Is there...

    Modern eyewear is a huge pet-peeve for many reenactors. We all spend so much money on kit that lots of us can see no reason to not get period correct spectacles too. I personally purchased my frames...

    I just got O'l Nettie back in the mail today. She looks better than she did brand new. I can't say how happy I am with Mr. Watts's work. Now I don't want to take her into the field!

    Thanks, Todd.

    Nothing like IPA. Not even a little. To my mind it's more like a tangy-sour porter, and not especially hoppy at all.

    Chris and Mike,

    Start with a 2x2. If you can find a dimensional 2x2, that's better. Set your table saw to rip at 45 degrees and you'll be in the money.
