    Today I started making a box for my dog's ashes. Its made of Bocote and Birdseye maple with Gaboon Ebony corner accents. The ends are going to be dovetailed. Not sure yet how I'm going to attach the top & bottom. I'll post up pix later.

    I am a control room operator at a natural gas powered electrical powerplant near Las Vegas. Been doing it for about 8 years, and I work 12 hr shifts rotating from two weeks of days to 2 weeks of nights every month. Absolutely love my operators job and plan to do it till retirement, and never go back to using my civil engineer degree.

    Control room where everything is controlled by the mouse clicks. I have ten of them to make things happen in the powerplant. Blue jeans and t-shirts are my work clothes.

    I'll play. Last night I spent the better half of a 13-hour shift in what is my workplace.

    [​IMG]

    I could show you more, like all the fun toys and equipment and such but it comes almost entirely in the most awesome Tactical Black and they might not photograph well (think ninja.. it's black for a reason, dammit :) ). Even my 29" Dymondwood baton is black!

    Wanna see the gunz and other schitt anyway?

    I can achieve V-1, but I'm told that at 144-mph it starts to hit ignition cutoff and doesn't make V-2... so I can't rotate the stick for max effect.

    I really and truly prefer being in a gun battle to driving at night (and on possibly unfamiliar roads) at near warp speed. There's so many varying ways to die while doing that. :!:

    Re: Share pics of what you do for a living

    Do you mean an external vest versus a concealeable Level IIIa vest under the uniform?

    I ALWAYS wear a Level IIIa vest under my uniform or else I don't leave my wife at home to worry all night about me. I have never taken it off while in uniform, cuz' that's the promise that I made to my bride.

    I also have a Second Chance exterior raid vest which on its carrier has chest pockets for rifle mags, radio, and other good schidt as well as reflectorized ID panels.

    Don't wear it all that much cuz I feel like a dork and it slows me down...........
