Currently subtitling a video for fun. It's really, really gratifying to see the subtitles, the first two minutes' worth, actually work in VLC.

Arma 3s Global mobilization thingie came out today, which is nice since the stuff I've been reading lately kinda has me into a sorta cold war mood so that should be fun to mess around with later. Though Ill probally want to derust myself a little since it's been a little bit since I played arma.

I gotta at least take a look around the new map though, 419 square kilometers of Germany to explore and shoot stuff in? With an actual section of the inner german border recreated from period documents and things? Definitely wanna see that.

I don't know, those don't look entirely hygienic. The porous wood absorbs so much moisture and germs, they might not be as safe as ones made of biocidal metal.
Walnut is a super duper stable wood, it's one of the only ones I have access too which I would ever consider for a piercing, and it's been slathered in a beeswax+mineral oil coating we variously call honey butter, wood butter, wood balm, and so forth, additionally the pores on the pieces used for the pins are at the ends of the wood, not along the section touching the inside of the piercing.

I am kinda sorta extremely familiar with several wood species in particular, and generally have an extremely rich understanding of wood overall.

You would be right to be concerned if this was like, untreated pine, or birch, or even one of the pretty fruit woods (pear, apple, peach, etc) as they are not nearly as stable and friendly to work with as walnut... but then, nothing really is.

Engraved here is a rendition of an image of the Dwarf Fortress learning curve. All craftsdwarfship is of the highest quality. It depicts an obsidian overhang which menaces with spikes of obsidian and tears. Carved on the overhang is an image of Toady One and the players. The players are curled up in a fetal position. Toady One is laughing. The players are burning.

It's ... challenging to work.. but you could also try Osage Orange.  Even with a clear urethane finish, it glows bright neon yellow and dark tan.  Lovely wood.  It's commonly known as hedge apple. It may or may not be wild in your area. (it is in my area.)

Depending on how much it would cost to ship, I could try scavenging roadsides for windfalls of suitable quality. You clearly already have a full wood shop for dressing it.

Yo is it true that they specifically plant walnut to get roots that have been exposed to air (for instruments), or am i mixing things up? I mean it's not that farfetched, but I'm allways amazed when people have more than a lifespan of foresight.

root burls are naturally occurring, usually.  Some species are more prone to producing interesting burl wood than others.

I've been ultrabusy with work and finals (yaaay finals x.z) but everytime I see the happy thread, and the name change (both independent of each other), it's a yay because I like Gunner-Chan and many other folks.

This fills me with so much joy.

I'm speechless.

It looks so bad though, I can't wait to see it.

But Jim Carrey tho is going to be great I bet.

EDIT: It looks SO BAD THOUGH
