Hi all

I've been jumping from one small layout job to another.

Recently, Built a 3' long, block retaining wall.
It's made of rigid insulation foam.
Each block was cut to size on my little Micro-Mark table saw.

Larry

Great looking wall !  :2t:


But, cutting each block individually? 
seems like an awful lot of work.


I just picked up a small block of dry foam,
to use for making a stone chimney. 

Never worked with this stuff before,
so it will be interesting to see how it turns out.

Michael

I mass produced the blocks by cutting several in a bunch.

The time consuming task was gluing each block in place.


Let us know how the dry foam project works out.

I found this at Michael's.





And made this chimney out of it.





The material is very soft and needs to be handled gently. 

It is not as dense as I had hoped but does carve and cut easily.

Thanks Michael

I'm always open to trying new mediums.

I'll look for this Dry Foam next time I'm in Rapid City.

I once watched a video about vanishing coal mines in China,

does anyone know where to find that video?

Michael, no, but that sounds interesting.

The one I'm looking for had a little put-put type of critter.

The video started with a shot of mine cars coming up an incline,
out of a underground mine, on a cable.

Here's the one I was thinking about. 

You hold the collector with your hand.
