          I ordered this plywood panel because I do a lot of mixed media art projects that involve decoupage, picture transfers, and other textured forms and substances for artwork that gets hung up in my home. The bendable panels can be helpful when I look to have more of a 3D type finished project.
          The ¼ board indeed proved to be a much better choice for the quality of the wood over the ⅜ panel. The surface was a bit rough, but nothing that could not be smoothed out with my orbital sander.
          The grain is nice and uniform, as is the color throughout the panel. I really like how much it can flex and bend.
          Pros: Good Shape, Light Weight, Multi Use, uniform grain

          I do a lot of artistic work that involves decoupage, picture transfers, and other mixed media textures. I had finally decided to do some larger pieces for four different rooms of my house, and felt like these Project Panels would be a fairly decent choice in which to do so. Their description DID say that they "may require sanding", so in theory it was me that didn't pay attention to the description - because the PICTURE of the item is completely different than what is shown. The item shown is obviously very smooth, and it's sort of the catalyst on my choice of this sheeting. The piece had large chunks of knots not only in the wood, but one was missing and it left a rather large hole.

          I do have mixed feelings over this appliance. While the outside looks very nice to the eye, the inside is all plastic. I wasn't prepared for that as the price would certainly indicate a higher quality appliance. Most upper named microwaves have stainless steel in their interiors. Plastic has historically held onto flavors and smells from items cooked that weigh heavy in certain 'smells'; things like garlic or onions.
          The menu on the door for cooking is going to take a pretty good learning curve. It isn't standard in words like "start" or "instant cook" or "1 min", "2 mins", "3 mins" etc. It has food categories so you have to scroll through the category that you want to cook in.

          On a good note however, the unit does heat up foods and drinks like milk fast. The light below to illuminate the cooktop surface is nice and bright. And the vent fan isn't that loud. And it does look nice in our kitchen.

          Your friends will thank you when you show up with the Beer Caddy soft-sided cooler filled with their favorite cold beverages. Not only does its waxed cotton canvas exterior look way cooler than a cardboard box, but it comes with a retractable bottle opener built-in so you never have to worry about it walking off - like those koozies you never saw a second time. The Beer Caddy comes with a removable padded divider and an adjustable shoulder strap. It holds six bottles securely, while allowing you to remove each bottle without having to open the flap. Keep your beverages cold and classy with the coolest beer caddy you've ever laid your eyes on.

          I was really hoping that this would be a tad bit bigger. Now while I don't drink beer, but my husband does, we were hoping to be able to pack two different types of drinks for us both to have with us. Unfortunately for me, my drink bottles didn't quite fit into the slats that they have for the openings at the top. I guess this means that I'm going to have to get my own drink cooler, and allow the hubby to have the whole thing!
          The cooler itself is VERY well made. The little bottle opener is on an retractable leash so you'll never lose it!
          Just wish it was bigger...
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Looks Great, Lots of Features, Sturdy, Stylish

          In the wintertime, my husband does a lot of projects out in the garage - but even here in Georgia, we get some COLD months that make our garage just a bit too uncomfortable for him to even want to go out into the garage to complete anything. He tried wearing a heavier jacket / coat, but that proved to be a bit too restrictive and limiting to his movements. We considered other heaters, but in a garage, we just didn't feel comfortable or safe using many of them in such an environment.

          In the wintertime, my husband does a lot of projects out in the garage - but even here in Georgia, we get some COLD months that make our garage just a bit too uncomfortable for him to even want to go out into the garage to complete anything. He tried wearing a heavier jacket / coat, but that proved to be a bit too restrictive and limiting to his movements. We considered other heaters, but in a garage, we just didn't feel comfortable or safe using many of them in such an environment.
          Then I saw this little guy - and it's definitely little - but in a GOOD way! It fits on his workbench perfectly without taking up much highly coveted workspace. But the best part is it throws off just enough heat to take the chill out of his work area, so he can stay busy during these normally, "lazy, cabin fever" induced winter months.
          The ONLY thing he doesn't care for on the unit is that it doesn't have a lo/high switch. It's got a power switch that turns on and it's on until you turn it off. Fortunately this is still a happy medium for him!

          Connect your Ring stick-up camera to an everlasting power source with this Ring solar panel. It hooks up to the Ring stick-up camera with a USB micro cable that can keep the camera charged with just a few hours of daylight. The Ring solar panel unit is weather resistant, making it suitable for most climates.

          It doesn't need anything but sunlight! Just make sure that your solar panel is in a good location to get at least six hours of sunshine per day - the cord length that is included is more than ample (in most cases) for you to be able to most likely be able to position your camera just about anywhere you may need it.

          I don't believe so. I've looked over the description and nothing in the wording nor the visuals shows them being used in an outdoor setting. However, I looked up their toll free number where you can definitely ask the company - this way they can point you in the right direction if they are not compatible for outdoor use.

          will these work with a Mesh WIFI network. The problem I have been reading about is that these lights only work on 2.4ghz and wont connect to 5 ghz. A mesh network such as netgears ORBI autoslects the fastest speed that is closest to what you are trying to connect (usually 5 ghz). If this is the case will lights conect to wifi?
