Now looking at the potential of humans (including myself) with regard to understanding complex natural phenomena.

Official Spring will arrive in a few hours. Our spring weather can be just about anything including warm,calm sunshine and heavy wet snow. Tonight is not really cold but noticably "raw" out there with a wind warning for later. Possible snow flurries.
I'm getting some progress on my latest "Octagon" schatzkammer: Got the main frame epoxied together and only another four or eight small shelves to fit in.
What amazes me is how the smallest errors magnify as you build out. I'm used to it from many years of trying to make wood behave but this smaller stuff is worse than building an house. The thin slats I use will not take a nail or a screw so I saturate the joint with epoxy and then hold the frame together with duct tape and light clamping till the epoxy kicks off. The epoxy is one of the best lubricants I have seen until it turns to stone. I have to go back often to push parts that slowly ooze out of position for some hours. In fact, that's what I'm going to do just now.
If I can find the iPod there will be a picture here someday.
