Gord Barratt was unimpressed with the Pembroke Memorial Centre. Not surprising. In the fall of 1972, the PMC was partially condemned, fearing that its roof might be compromised. Large wooden beams had been installed to reinforce the roof of the building, and much of the seating was covered in plywood and banned until engineers could properly repair the damage inflicted by an overload of snow the previous winter.

Across the province, there were concerns about the state of public buildings after a record snowfall caused the collapse of several facilities, including a section of the Brockville Memorial Center which ultimately led to the demolition of the Brave. Out of an abundance of caution, the province’s Department of Labor had issued directives to several communities to ensure the safety of their buildings. So when Barratt arrived in Pembroke, the future of his memorial center was in question.

Lumber Kings president Jack Minns was not happy. The PMC’s reduced seating capacity meant fewer tickets to sell, and the loss of revenue meant it would be more difficult to meet the running expenses of the team. Minns and team general manager Art Bogart had been lobbying the city to add more seats because they knew they had a great team that could compete for a national championship. Every game this season has been sold out as the team went 47-4 and 4 in the regular season and aimed for a national Junior A championship.

Bogart and head coach Mac MacLean had scoured the province for talent. That’s how Barratt ended up in Pembroke. He had been drafted into the Ontario Hockey Association by the London Knights, and after a year playing major junior in London, he bounced back with other OHA teams in Brantford, Sault Ste. . Mary and Guelph.

“It was a chance meeting in Kitchener when I first met Mac MacLean and he offered me the opportunity to play for the Kings,” said Barratt, who was encouraged to accept the offer of play in Pembroke by a former London knight and close friend. , Bob Wright. Wright had already been persuaded to join the Lumber Kings for the 1972-73 season.

“He told me the Kings were a great team to play for, but there was not much to say on the ice. He was so positive about playing in Pembroke that he convinced me to make the move. It was the best decision I made while I was in junior hockey,” said Barratt, some 50 years after playing with the Kings.

It didn’t start well for Barratt. He arrived in Pembroke in November and fell ill. It turned out to be pneumonia and it cost Barratt a bunch of games before he was healthy enough to play but when he got into the lineup he got found his rhythm. Playing on a line with future NHL player Tim Young and his buddy, Bob Wright, the line combined for 182 points. Barratt played only 31 regular season games, but he scored 21 goals and added 27 assists.

He quickly learned that there was a passion for hockey in Pembroke that he had never known. It was motivating and in one game Barratt scored five goals. It was actually six, but the last one was disallowed because he kicked the puck into the net. Memories of playing in Pembroke have stayed with him for the rest of his life.

“It didn’t take long for me to get swept away by the support we got from the Pembroke fans. Obviously, hockey was a passion in the Ottawa Valley that I had never seen before. It was amazing to play hockey in this old rink that had started to develop its own character. The fans would never allow us to lose,” Barratt said.

Unfortunately, the team ended up losing. After going undefeated at home in the regular season, winning a league title and knocking out the Saint Paul Vulcans, Chatham Maroons and St. Jerome Allouettes en route to the Centennial Cup final, they ran out of game play. gasoline against the Portage La Prairie Terriers. .

The start of the series was delayed when The Burrow Arena was deemed unplayable due to a leaky roof, leading to the National Finals in Brandon and Winnipeg, Manitoba. “We sat around doing nothing for days, which made us come out flat. We never regained the magic momentum we had,” Barratt said.

After the season ended, Barratt attended training camp with the Detroit Red Wings. He then made the decision to quit hockey and pursue a career in law enforcement. He joined the Metropolitan Toronto Police in December 1973 and served for 36 years before retiring as a Staff Sergeant.

Barratt will be among several players from the 1972-73 Lumber Kings team who will be honored at a special pre-game ceremony during the Kings’ game on Sunday, Dec. 4 against the Ottawa Junior Senators as the Kings score the fiftieth anniversary of one of the franchise’s greatest teams.

It’s a quiet September afternoon and Gregory Rich’s boat is crossing an ocean as flat as glass. A flock of Canada Geese forms overhead as the beauty of northern Labrador unfolds before him.

Rich guides his motorboat through an abandoned community that in the 1990s became synonymous with Canada’s shameful history of treatment of Indigenous people.

With familiar ease, Rich, 54, sails from the wharf in Natuashish – one of two Innu communities in Labrador and the only one on the North Shore – to his former home.

“It’s Davis Inlet. This is my birthplace,” Rich says, as the boat slows down and the last remaining houses begin to appear.

Straight: the place where he started a family, then lost it.

“A lot of good and bad memories here,” he says. “We had no running water, we had no heating, we had to haul wood in the winter.”

Rich was born in Davis Inlet in 1968, just a year after the Mushuau Innu were lured to the remote island by provincial government promises of a better life. The promises turned out to be false; Slums, the removal of traditional hunting routes, and abject poverty awaited the new settlers.

Rich grew up in the island community, married and started a family.

And then came an unfathomable drama.

“The house fire…it’s on the hills there,” he said, pointing to an area of ​​the former community that is now overgrown.

On Valentine’s Day in 1992, Rich’s five children and one other child died in a house fire. Rich and his wife weren’t home.

Local New Orleans roofers educate homeowners on needed roof repairs https://neforestproducts.com/local-new-orleans-roofers-educate-homeowners-on-needed-roof-repairs/ Mon, 14 Nov 2022 16:02:54 +0000 https://neforestproducts.com/local-new-orleans-roofers-educate-homeowners-on-needed-roof-repairs/ The owners of The New Orleans Roofers, leading roofers in New Orleans and surrounding cities, are pleased to announce their latest educational initiative. “Too many homeowners put off needed roof repairs,” say the company’s owners. “In turn, we are seeing more and more unnecessary roof replacement work being planned.” This press release was originally issued […]]]>

The owners of The New Orleans Roofers, leading roofers in New Orleans and surrounding cities, are pleased to announce their latest educational initiative. “Too many homeowners put off needed roof repairs,” say the company’s owners. “In turn, we are seeing more and more unnecessary roof replacement work being planned.”

This press release was originally issued by Release Wire

New Orleans, LA — (Release Wire) – 11/14/2022 – Timely roof repair is an essential part of maintaining your home in New Orleans. That’s why the owners of The New Orleans Roofers work hard to educate area homeowners on planning for repairs when needed. “We hope more homeowners will see the value of calling a New Orleans roofer at the first sign of damage,” they state. “Delaying necessary repairs, even small ones, can risk worsening that damage. In turn, those potential roof repairs are more extensive and expensive!”

It’s not the only problem of avoiding necessary roof repairs or ignoring signs of damage. “Eventually, that roof becomes too damaged to repair,” note the owners of The New Orleans Roofers. “As a result, a homeowner is then considering a full-scale replacement. This means replacing the decking or plywood under the roofing layers as well as other underlayments and installing all new shingles or tiles as well as flashings.” They note that this job still costs significantly more than scheduling repairs once you notice missing shingles or a small leak, they note.

With that in mind, when should homeowners call and schedule a consultation with a roofer in New Orleans? “That’s a great question,” agree the owners of The New Orleans Roofers. “It’s also one of the reasons some homeowners put off needed repairs. In truth, they just don’t always realize their roof is damaged and needs fixing!”

Therefore, the team is happy to explain common signs of roof damage and what fixes are needed. “Homeowners should never climb ladders,” they explain. “However, you can usually see sunken or sagging areas and bald spots, or places with missing shingles, from the ground. Discoloration can also indicate water damage that needs attention.”

The crew shares other signs of roof damage that owners should never overlook. “Pellets in the gutters or along the floor indicate shingle damage,” they share. “Too often, homeowners either overlook these pellets or dismiss them as mere trash. The same goes for nails and other connectors that come loose from the roof and end up in a home’s gutters or on the ground near of its foundation.”

The owners of New Orleans Roofers also note that wavy, warped or otherwise distorted shingles are unnatural and should be replaced immediately! “Once the shingles are damaged by water or algae grows between them, you may notice that they become warped or wavy. This situation simply allows water to seep under these shingles, risking even more damage. They need immediate replacement.”

There are even signs to look for inside the house, note The New Orleans Roofers team. “Water spots on the ceiling can be the result of plumbing problems, but are also a common sign of roof leaks. Additionally, homeowners may notice cold, drafty interiors during winter months. , then hot, stuffy rooms in the summer. Roof leaks let outside air in, making for a very uncomfortable indoor environment.” They also note that this issue can drive up a homeowner’s utility costs, as the HVAC system runs more often to compensate.

Finally, The New Orleans Roofers team encourages homeowners to consider the age of a roof. “Even the strongest roof will begin to suffer damage after ten or twenty years,” they note. “This is especially true after storms have passed through the area. In return, we encourage homeowners to call a New Orleans roofing company for an inspection every year once their home’s roof is ten years old.”

As part of their educational initiative, the owners of The New Orleans Roofers are offering roof inspections at no cost to area homeowners. However, they encourage customers to call early as appointments are on a first-come, first-served basis and book quickly. To make an appointment, visit their website and fill out a contact form or simply give them a call. They are located at 3203 Toulouse St., New Orleans, LA 70119. New Orleans roofers are fully licensed and insured and guarantee that all roof repairs and new roof installation will last for years.

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office received 257 calls for service between Saturday, October 8 and Friday, October 14. Below is a selection of reports.

At 10:59 a.m. Wednesday, October 12 in Port Ludlow, a resident was told by a neighbor that someone had tried to break into his home while he was out of town.

The caller said he was five o’clock from home but on his way home.

A burglary has been determined to have occurred within the past four days. The house had been ransacked and a vehicle had also been stolen from the driveway.

Investigators took photos and attempted to obtain a fingerprint from a broken bedroom window the intruder had used to enter the home.

The house had an alarm system but it had malfunctioned.

The man and his wife said they would make a list of missing items.

At 1:47 p.m. Wednesday, October 12 in Port Hadlock, a man said he had an unwanted person on his property. Someone had pitched a tent in his backyard and he said he didn’t confront anyone living there.

A deputy found a woman known to live on the adjacent property in the tent.

The deputy determined that the woman probably did not know the location of the property line.

The woman and the man she was camping with were asked to tear down the tent and move. They did it.

At 2:24 p.m. Thursday, October 13 in Port Hadlock, an employee at a building supply store wanted a woman who had been caught shoplifting kicked out of the store.

At 2:29 p.m. Thursday, October 13 in Port Hadlock, a resident found a large rock with ominous messages written on it.

The caller found the rock in his driveway on Saturday and believed it had been left overnight.

The stone was covered with messages written in purple ink.

On one side, the message read: “Wife swapping. I have Dan’s soul and he traded Howard’s wife.

Along the side of the rock was the word “exchanged”.

The woman did not recognize the names on the rock.

A deputy took pictures of the stone.

At 5:42 p.m. Thursday, October 13 in Port Hadlock, a woman said her son got angry and smashed the car’s windshield an hour earlier.

The son was last seen in the front yard five minutes prior, but had since disappeared.

The caller said his son left in a vehicle in an unknown direction.

A deputy contacted the caller and said she was in truancy court trying to get help for her son for his anxiety issues.

The son was shocked on his way home from court that day and hit the windshield with a glass bottle, causing cobwebbing cracks in the glass.

The woman did not want to press charges and just wanted to get her son’s help.

At 10:43 a.m. on Friday, October 14 in Port Hadlock, graffiti was reported on the basketball court and on a bathroom wall in Irondale Park.

At 5:40 p.m. on Friday, October 14 at Brinnon, the locks of a stacked container structure had been cut and 40 sheets of plywood, a Champion generator and various tools had been stolen.

You need a rack on these roads https://neforestproducts.com/you-need-a-rack-on-these-roads/ Mon, 07 Nov 2022 21:00:01 +0000 https://neforestproducts.com/you-need-a-rack-on-these-roads/ Yes, it’s true: I live on a tropical island where the roads look like the paved stages of an FIA World Rally, but not quite as smooth.

Yes, it’s true: I live on a tropical island where the roads look like the paved stages of an FIA World Rally, but not quite as smooth. Oh, and to make it more interesting, they drive on the left here. Which would be easier if they maintained the roads with a bit more care, like repainting the center lines – wait, what? ! There is supposed to be a median line ? !— more than once every three or four hurricane seasons.

See? There is a middle line!

You say you like driving on back roads, with all the twists and turns? Hey, in this place there is almost no front roads. There are also no sidewalks. Or troubleshooting routes. Or the shoulders. What’s amazing is that the drivers here are courteous and helpful, letting side traffic into the flow, waving and smiling. I think everyone is just euphoric just being here, abandoned in paradise, where the roads are shitty, but the morale is high. And it was into this Edenic environment that we shipped the Electric Mini (GNOHM license plate).

It only took a month for the roads – especially a malevolent pothole – to heave up and sink their fangs into a tire.

Hmm, I don’t think Fix-a-Flat will work.

And it was the Highway-or what passes for a freeway here. Leave the highway on the real secondary roads, only some of which have names, and the driving is pure adventure. On the one hand, just as America followed ancient Native American trails, and Native Americans followed animal trails, I think we ride on roads made on trails left by migrating iguanas. And whoever paved those roads to begin with probably owned a Volkswagen, if not a Model T, because the roads are about two VWs wide, and who could ask for more than that?

Yes, two cars will fit…

Of course, the weather and the weather – this place gets the occasional weather – can take its toll on the best-laid highways, so you can imagine how much fun they’re having here.

…but a car could be submerged.

Now the roads are maintained, somehow, but I’m not sure that this maintenance is official. Occasional holes appear to be filled by arbitrary pouring of concrete, as if it were a coprolite deposit of some prehistoric Pleistocene creature, something big with a bad digestive tract.

Are these road repairs or coprolites?

Aside from the tire-eating rally stages, the countryside is steep and rocky, so parking becomes a creative activity. There is a wrecked car on the side of the road not far from our rental condo; its owner eventually had to stick a sign inside the storefront explaining that it hasn’t been abandoned, he’s just waiting for the adjusters to do their magic. He’s been there since before we arrived in September. And there’s a Jeep parked not too far away on relatively flat ground that’s been in the same spot for a long time.

Island time.

I don’t know how it got there or why it’s there, but it’s definitely there.

So a person needs a luggage rack.

Well, okay: I guess the rack really has nothing to do with the roads on the island, but it was definitely an island projectbecause when you live in a place like this, people want to visit, and of course you insist on picking them up from the airport – don’t pay for a taxi, do you? mad?! We will pick you up!

But people invariably have luggage, and I’m not talking about your childhood trauma. So, even before flying south for the whole duration, part A started looking for luggage racks for the Mini Cooper, because it’s a minifor god’s sake, and while it will certainly carry four people in intimate comfort, if they brought anything other than a Speedo and a roll of dental floss, then you need a rack.

But have you seen what these things Cost?!

First of all, this Mini Cooper SE didn’t come with roof rails, which I guess are to cars what eaves are to houses. If I remember correctly, retrofitting the roof rails would cost something like a thousand dollars, and the alternatives varied everywhere – and that’s only for the basic structure that supports the rack, or basket , or the pod, or whatever. “Just bring me some bars,” I growled, and I’ll build my own rack!

It’s not always a good idea to issue such a challenge. In no time, Party A had tracked down and purchased a set of Sea Sucker roof racks, for a measly Oh my God! the price. These sturdy bars have gigantic suction cups, and when I assembled the bars and slapped them on the car, I was convinced they would work. Then I tried to go back on my DIY promise and started looking at the prices of different accessories that you can attach to the bars, in order to transport your surfboards, your bikes, Mitt Romney’s dog, or some baggage, leading to another Oh my God moment.

Back to doing it myself.

At that time, the Great Movement was in motion. The GNOHM car was dispatched and a group of movers descended on Mondo Condo to bundle our things in boxes and move them, leaving me to transport whatever was left in the garage to a nearby rental garage, with plans to organize that flotsam and eventually join the A party. But the Sea Sucker bars were still with me, as were the discarded fumes of fifteen years at Mondo Condo.

Like those umbrella sticks.

Well, I don’t think that’s their correct nomenclature, but it’s the remains of a parasol that died a few years ago at which point I disassembled its skeleton and ended up with those spokes or ribs or whatever else it’s called, which of course I kept because you can never tell when you might need something like that. And then there were the two-by-three-inch plywood boards that I think I salvaged from a bed frame or something someone threw next to the dumpster. So I figured I had the makings of an acceptable luggage rack.

We should be able to do something about it!

First, guess the size of the Mini roof.

Let’s see: the long pieces first…

… then the sleepers.

That should do the trick!

With the luggage basket complete, loosely held together with all the screws I could find in the rubble, it was time to take the whole shebang apart and pack the bars, suction cups and sticks into a box and put it together. ‘mail it to the office box that Party A had rented.

Put everything in a box…

… and send it by post!

Now here’s the thing: it takes a number of tools to assemble a rack, and most of my tools would be left for now. But when I packed up the big rack kit, I also included everything I thought I’d need to reassemble it. Sure enough, when the white box finally arrived on the island a few weeks after I landed, I unpacked my 12-volt Bosch battery drill, my Snap-On ratcheting T-handle, and a DeWalt right-angle drill attachment that I bought out of speculation last year. A quick visit to Home Depot to rearm myself with Torx head screws, and I was ready to spend a pleasant afternoon on the patio reassembling my luggage basket.

The basket is finally ready to be attached.

Of course, I hadn’t made definitive connections between the wooden basket and the Sea Sucker bars in San Diego, because I didn’t have the exact dimensions of the Mini’s roof. So now it was time to put the bars in place, position the basket, and mark the locations of the holes that would (hopefully) secure the basket to the bars with one and a quarter inch cable hangers. (I’m wary of them because they’re plastic, but in a salty environment, I don’t trust metal either.)

The suction cups seem to hold the bars securely: four in the front, two in the back.

If the orange band is visible, it’s time to turn up the volume — uh, dump.

Now, with the bars in place on the car and the basket strategically balanced on the bars, it was time to install the plastic supports – from below. This is where my thoughtful selection of travel tools paid off: connecting the T-handle to the right-angle drill attachment allowed me to drive in Torx screws from below.

The T-handle and right-angle drive made final assembly a simple possibility.

The plastic brackets seem secure – for now.

The finished product: ta-daaah!

Why, yes, now that you ask: I did complete this project the morning our friends arrive, but still with plenty of time to pick them up at the airport. And even though it turned out that they both only traveled with small travel bags which could probably have been crushed in the austere luggage compartment of the Mini, I insisted on using the creation umbrella on the roof, tying it all together with bright orange ratchet ties. straps. Worked like a charm.–Satch Carlson

Have you ever sipped half a dozen oysters on a platter of shellfish at a gourmet restaurant? Delicious, right? There’s also something about the experience – it’s just one of life’s great pleasures. However, it’s one that doesn’t have to be fancy or break the budget every time. A good roast of oysters, a staple of the Lowcountry winter season, will often eliminate that itch.

The concept itself is not new. Archeology teaches that Roman emperors like Julius Caesar, Caligula and Nero feasted on the tasty bivalves. For most of Western history, rich and poor alike savored oysters. When the first settlers arrived in the New World, they discovered that the natives were also oyster lovers. In the Lowcountry, oysters were plentiful, and outdoor roasts were soon common. Some historians date the true tradition of roasts held here to the early 1800s.

Now, as it was then, the most appealing attributes of these roasts are that, for a small fee, one can suck in as many oysters as one’s stomach can handle. All this while enjoying the camaraderie of other enthusiastic participants.

Host your own roast

In these regions, it is not difficult to launch an oyster roast yourself. You will need a large sheet of steel, a sturdy plywood sheet with a hole cut in the middle to lay the shells in, some trestles, a fire, damp towels and a shovel to move the shells around. steamed oysters on your makeshift meal. the tables.

If you’re considering hosting your own roast, consider contacting companies that do it professionally, like the pros at Mount Pleasant Seafood. According to company owner Sarah Fitch, her family has been serving the region’s seafood needs for 75 years and has prepared roasts for birthday parties, rehearsal dinners, religious events, corporate events and birthday parties.

“We also run a lot of backyard events,” Fitch said. “From October to early March, we do four or five roasts every weekend! Even if you don’t like oysters, it’s a great opportunity to gather around the table, warm your hands and enjoy socializing with friends.

Attend a roast

Enjoy the region's largest oyster roast.

However, hosting isn’t for everyone, and if that describes you, you can still enjoy the season as a participant. From around late October to early March, there are a multitude of well-organized roasts throughout the Lowcountry. Most include a significant charitable component to ease the conscience of even the most voracious oyster eaters. We’ve collected a few of them here.

One example is the Charleston Animal Society’s Chili Cook-off and Oyster Roast at Riverfront Park in North Charleston, traditionally held every November. His product helps save the lives of countless shelter animals.

As the season progresses, Charleston Harbor Resort and Marina hosts a monthly series called “Oysters on the Point.” Great food and fun along with an unbeatable backdrop are some of the highlights of this party.

Then there’s the big kahuna of all roasts, the Lowcountry Oyster Festival at Boone Hall Plantation and Gardens, which also raises money for area charities. Some 800,000 oysters are eaten at the world’s biggest oyster festival, scheduled for January.

Jonathan Kish, president of the Charleston Restaurant Foundation, which hosts the Lowcountry Oyster Festival, said, “I’m thinking in terms of pounds and bushels, because oyster clusters in particular are hard to count.”

Kish estimated that the 8,000 diners who attend each year consume about 42,000 pounds of oysters. This weight includes the shells, which are recycled in concert with the efforts of the Coastal Conservation League to clean up our waterways and provide a sustainable environment for oysters to thrive.

Although the festival welcomed up to 13,000 fans, attendance is now capped at 8,000, still sold out. Kish thinks numbers are the limit to ensure everyone has plenty of space and a good time.

It’s the first oyster season in South Carolina right now. Whichever path you choose, join the fun. Get out your oyster knife and work gloves and dive in.

The HuntStand team conducted an extensive field test in 2022 to compare these eight premium 100-grain broadheads (three mechanical heads and five fixed-blade heads):

Three awards were up for grabs in the test: Editor’s Choice; Silver medal ; and better value for money.

Testing criteria included consistency of broadhead weight (three heads), accuracy at 40 yards, penetration, and deflection.

Editor’s Choice Award

The four-blade Slick Trick Standard outperformed seven other premium hunting heads in HuntStand’s annual best hunting head test, winning the Editor’s Choice award for the third time.

“How about Slick Trick; can this company build stellar fighter heads, or what?” said HuntStand editor Melotik. “This is the seventh year we’ve tested the most advanced hunting heads on the market, and the third time Slick Trick has won top honors, including two in a row after last year’s victory by the Mechanical Assailant Slick Trick .”

The 100-grain Slick Trick Standard impressed in the accuracy test, posting a 40-yard three-shot group of 1 15/16 inches; it was the best of all the fixed-blade broadheads tested. The four-blade design of the Slick Trick Standard ranked first in the penetration test, plunging 9.25 inches into the gel after traversing carpet and 1/8-inch-thick plywood, meant to simulate the skin, bones and flesh. of a big game. As for angled penetration testing, the Slick Trick Standard plunged 20 inches through the angled plywood and emerged at the other end with barely a scratch and “looking brand new,” Melotik said.

Finally, a four-pack of Slick Trick Standards has an MSRP of $44.99 (most broadheads are sold in three packs) and stand out in terms of value with the lowest price per head of any broadhead tested. .

Best Value Award

The Best Value award went to the Wac’Em 3-Blade. Remarkable performance from the compact design was noted in the penetration category where the 1 1/16-inch-wide three-blade design posted the best score in the test while penetrating 9.25 inches through carpet, a piece 1/8 inch thick plywood and ballistic gel. In the accuracy test, the head displayed a consistent three-shot 2.25-inch group at 40 yards, which was less than 1 inch longer than the control group fired with standard field points. When combined with a strong performance in the angular deflection test pulled through a piece of premium half-inch-thick birch plywood, the stainless steel construction of the fixed wide point Wac’Em 3-blade “built an impressive case for the fight against medals”. said Melotik.

Adding to the value of the broad tip is the included red/green Nock FIT Nockturnal (a $15 value) designed to fit most arrows on the market today. With an MSRP of $46.99 for a three-pack, the cost was below the average price of HuntStand’s 2022 Best Broadhead Field Test, while also including a bonus lighted notch. “Add it all up. . . consistent performance from this head, great value for money and you have the leader in our test,” said Melotik.

Silver medal

The Swhacker 261 Levi Morgan Signature Series 2-inch twin-blade mechanics won the Silver Award. It was one of two largehead models to score perfect in the largehead weight consistency test, and it also performed very well in the deflection test.

Swhacker 261 Levi Morgan Signature Series

“Most impressive,” said Melotik, “was that it was the only mechanic that didn’t lose a blade. In fact, after being pulled through the premium half-inch birch plywood , both heads looked brand new. The blades weren’t even bent. That’s pretty impressive for a 2” mechanic.

Epoxy resins have been used to make some pretty cool furniture, but since it’s still a relatively new material, manufacturers are still discovering new techniques for working with resin. [Cam] from Blacktail Studio may be the first person to bend fully cured epoxy using nothing but a form and the power of the sun.

Inspired by a friend’s misadventure with an epoxy table left in the sun for too long, [Cam] wanted to see if he could voluntarily bend a sheet of epoxy into an interesting shape. The table top was cast in sections to give an ombré appearance before being planed and given a preliminary surface finish. The epoxy sheet was then attached to a grooved plywood form and left in direct sunlight on a 104°F (40°C) day. Once the sheet began to warp in the sun, ratchet straps and other clamps were added to conform the sheet to the bend shape.

After letting the table relax for a few days, [Cam] finished the surface with lots of sanding and an automotive polishing regimen. The epoxy was then attached to a single zebra wood leg resulting in a very modern looking, waterfall shaped table.

More interesting projects with resin that you might want to check out are these ocean themed epoxy night light, how to degas cheap epoxyor certain techniques of cold casting with resin.
