    If it conformed to the code requirements I could but I can tell just from the picture that it doesn't. There can't be more that a 12' vertical rise with out a landing. There cannot be more than a 4-3/8" opening between balusters (4" for commercial). That one looks larger. Lastly there are strict codes about the size and shape of the handrail to make sure that small hands can easily grasp it. The handrail in the picture looks much larger than what is allowed. Otherwise if you had the budget I could build it.

    Hah! I actually watched some friends play Utlima Online for a few weeks, then EQ1 came out and they all switched. I joined a few months later.

    Snowboarding, photography, marksmanship, camping, and spend my summer vacation commercial fishing in ak.

    Used to play eq. Stuck it out for a while after pouty left fu but haven't logged my toons in for years now. PS3 is even broken, no time for games with this epic snowfall.

    I used to collect comic books (that could fill a 5'x10' storage locker) and video game consoles back in the day (even drove down to L.A. just to pick up a Neo Geo game console that came in a cd format...I know crazy). Sports, especially volleyball (I coached my daughter's team). Home remodeling (ongoing). Hi End audio on a budget (enjoying my new Fiio hi resolution player). Mixing live audio (I volunteer as a sound man at my local church).

    Where are you located? Do you need me to come do your staircase?

    Eventually. I'll definitely keep you in mind when I do. I'm in Millbrae.

    Kim, it's been a goal for awhile to raise cleaner shrimp (I particularly love the skunk or red-striped cleaner shrimp Lysmata amboensis). I have been collecting materials and gear for awhile, but have yet to pull the trigger on growing nano-algae, copepods and rotifers. Would you post a thread on your efforts on this area, hopefully with a few photos of your setup?

    I certainly identify! I didn't 't graduate to good-looking projects until I acquired some high-quality tools. At a minimum you need a high-quality table saw, but I get a lot of use out of my 3D miter saw and would love to have a jointer.

    Completely agree.... I now wonder how I lived without a jointer, router table, etc.......

    Ya know, a lot of people like having a jointer but I don't know how many thousands of board feet of lumber I've milled and have never used one. It's rare that I could find it handy and there's always another way of doing what it does so that I don't need it. In my shop, my table saw gets the most use by far. On the job site it's my miter saw.

    Funny, we have a similar naming convention. My main was always RogueFlagg. Although, I did play PriestFlagg almost as much.

    Baby has taken over my time, but I enjoy photography and making photo albums, ancestry/genealogy, art/crafts projects, reading, tandem biking with @<3-2-reef and traveling. :)

    I can't help but notice you seem to have something going on with both @<3-2-reef and @coral4me.

    Hahaa. I guess I need to go edit all my comments about <3-2-reef and change then to coral4me. The < symbol was doing weird things with Matt's username, so we changed it to match his username from the other reef forums.

    Used to do some homebrewing 20+ years ago. Beer, mead, hard cider.

    Just started up again recently with Chinese rice wine.

    Got a 2.5 gallon batch of Fu Chow red wine going.



    The half gallon test batch looked and tasted ok.


    Also started a 2.5 gallon batch of Shaoxing style wine. Mother culture here.


    Adding the rest of the rice, yeast, and water tomorrow after initial 2 day incubation at 85 F.

    Here's the yeast and red yeast rice I'm using to ferment the glutinous rice.


    Started brewing the wine partly because I'm trying to stay away from imported Chinese food products, and also for curiosity and fun.

    I'll be using the red wine lees to make red fermented beancurd, of which I can't find any not from China.

    Made 2 batches of regular fermented bean curd which were ok, but not outstanding. Needed more fermentation before brining.

    Also on the list of experiments, fermented black soybeans, Chinese soy sauce, and Korean soy sauce.

    Just got 13 pounds of US grown, organic, non GMO soybeans.
