It's Grunttruck, not guntruck. FYI.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

OK, I am going to hijack this thread.

Why is it that the majority of people like to make up some type of name instead of using their own name? Or at least a name that looks like a name?

My family gets onto me for using my name on the internet because of identity theft.

It's a "screen name" ... so people have the opportunity to use a name that portrays a personality trait, or a favorite item or idea.
Screen names can be fun, or informative. Using one's own name is just unimaginative.

I didn't use any imagination on this site, using the name I did ... but I have more colorful names on some other sites I visit.

I don't know why "Grunttruck" ... but my first thought was "Grunt" "Truck" which, then took me back to Marine Corps Motor Pool.

Am I close, Grunt?

Nope, lol.

Grunttruck.. or more correctly Gruntruck, was the name of an alt rock band from the 90s. I just dug the name.


I don't use my real name because I don't want anyone to google it and see what I am up to as my name isn't exactly a common one.

As for not using a more girlish name, it's because my experience with male dominant forums, a girlie name makes things get really creepy really fast. Or otherwise just unpleasant, "damn girls don't know what they are doing.." yadda yadda

So by keeping it ambiguous, alls well. Besides "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet"

I think your name is just fine. You don't need a new name just to appease the masses. I mean, really, who cares? This is a woodworking forum not Woodarmony.com

Because we stay incognito!
This woodworking forum is no Facebook.
Although I regularly get surprised at some of the very personal post.
skizzity likes this.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?

Is affable like a fairy tail or a table with an "f" instead of a "t" ......

Bullfeathers, woodnthings. Affable means friendly. Just look it up.

Welcome to the forum!

Hey Grunt, welcome to the forum! It's a great forum, but we do have 70+ yr olds (Removed inappropriate verbiage) their table saws since they were in their teens, and consequently have picked up very little vocab to converse with a lady

If you think my vocabulary is not sufficient for this forum after almost 20,000 posts, I'll turn in my Master Degree and revoke 30 years at a Big 3 Automotive Design studio dealing with vice-presidents and attending board meetings, making presentations and speaking before the American Society of Engineers on technical subjects. Of course I knew the meaning of affable and you are apparently too slow to understand a tongue in cheek statement with a play on the word.:smile3:

Well, that escalated quickly.

In case anyone was still interested in the topic of this thread, an update of sorts!

It's been a combination of pretty warm and rainy as blah here. So the humidity is all over the place. A year or two ago we had a pretty crazy heatwave and so when I went to buy a fan for my apartment, the only ones left were these huge air circulation fans. So I have had this thing blasting for a couple days now, coincidentally blowing air across the table top.

Every single board on this thing completely warped. Before hand it was just bad joints that made the table top out of line, but now, this thing is more crooked than a politician.

I am floored.

Wouldn't it be better to make the top out of plywood? If necessary, you could add some 2"X bracing to add strength? I would think a formica top would be nice, since it's around water.

I think that would be a lot easier. I don't know what that 'palladium' affair weighs, but the weight might help in figuring out how rigid the top needs to be.
