DIY in general

If there's one thing I've noticed that real DIY'ers will tackle about anything.  It's not so much the end result I think that gets our juices running,  it's the process, the work it self, the planning, overcoming obstacles, just getting it done.  We like making ourselves into quivering wrecks over some project that is just kicking our ass.  Whether it's speaker building, fixing a car (I don't do cars anymore, at all), working on a house, building a pc, it doesn't matter what the project, we just like the work. 

So at my place, cabs and audio have taken a back seat for a while.  Unless somebody orders some boxes ;-)  Here's the current project, and it's a doozy.  We're 2 weeks in just scraping and prepping the porch.

But I'm an anal bastard when it comes to paint.  If you do it right, it will last 10 or 15 years.   Do it fast and cheap, you're lucky to get 5.  But isn't that true about everything.  Doing anything right is hard, slow and wears you out.  Quick and dirty never gets it right.
