And it's REAL purdy too!


Saw some in the Paris Metro that had been down for something like 50 years. Still looked great. Amazing stuff.

I mentioned it the last time you brought it up. It wasn't the Paris subway if it looked great. There is NOTHING great about the Paris subway. Now you could say it holds up well to piss, vomit, and other body fluids.

Funny, I spent a solid month wandering the Paris Metro from one side of the city to another and it was pretty much spotless everywhere I went. Just wish we had something like it here.

'94. The strairways to the metro were dirty, the city was dirty. Gray and cloudy too which didn't help. Had I spent more time there ... Germany was much nicer. And Swiss Land was awesome.

I don't care much for the French and I am French. The other half is German so that might explain it. I got some dirty looks from people when I yelled to the wife ... "Look French tacos!!" outside a crepe cafe.

The airline didn't lose my luggage; some woman going to Nice took it. Hers was locked so I couldn't even wander around Paris in her undies. I hope she had fun in mine. Stayed overnight hoping she was a local and would bring it back. It wasn't until later I found out that my suitcase went to Nice. And it wasn't until my return flight to the states that I got it back. At least I didn't have any laundry to do.

I was at the store and looked at that marine ply. $71.99 a sheet. You can use solid white oak or cedar for way cheaper. And both of those are extremely weather resistant

Those are excellent woods but the glue is not up to resisting separation if wet.
