Put on your comfy clothes, grab your popcorn and favorite beverage, take a seat in your easy chair and check out the latest installment of The Transcendence Project.....

Thanks Tango.....I'm really enjoying re-using old stuff in my conversion. I'll probably have to put some foam weatherstripping on the door to keep it from rattling like crazy but I think they look pretty cool. Nothing better than already made doors!

I'm just getting started into looking to convert a skoolie into a retirement combination toy hauler/RV. I just power watched all your video's this weekend. WOW!!! What an unbelievable job you've done. Love the raised roof with the vista window. You talk about a play by play on how to convert one of those buses. You have it down. I've been following a lot of other build sites and they also have some excellent ideas and advice. Keep up the great work. I'm looking forward to your next video.

I saw him run that finger by the saw blade and just said that guy is an artist. My father in law is missing two fingers on one hand and half of a couple on the other. He doesn't know what the word push or stick is still. But he builds great stuff. Apparently you don't have to have fingers to work wood or ears to paint.

Your work is to discover your world and then with all your heart give yourself to it

Ha! Wrong.

Ran the CNC in high-end cabinet shop. Also was OSHA contact for the shop and wrote all the lock-out procedures.

Still have my own woodworking shop-- and ALL my fingers.

I ran a machine shop for 25 years. I taught safety classes to apprentices for three years and the first thing I told them was the reason I was teaching the class was that after 15 years as a machinist I still had all my fingers. With all the possibilities for true accidents to cause damage deliberately putting yourself in harms way is silly.
