how about rotating the pic properly before posting?

>>905242
You know the site fucks it up once in a while. (EXIF data is the problem I believe?)

I'm building this large garage, the interior is 20' ribbed steel panels. The interior partitions look like pic related. I can't think of an elegant way to completely block the gaps, or light coming through. I have aluminium trim coil and am marginally proficient with a brake, but I could really only get an L shape, which would help but not cure it. I could stuff it with white foam board, but it wouldn't be very helpful or durable.

Just rotate your screen, lazy bones.
Ctrl+Alt+Arrow Keys

It depends on the phone/camera. Some just rotate the picture, others put in the exif data that the photo needs to be rotated before viewing. When the photo gets uploaded 4chan removes the exif data and that info is lost.

Yes, the roof is the same material and I have boxes of these. However, the gap I need to seal is over the panels, not under as you can see in the picture. So it would not work, it would have to be the literal opposite of it.
>>
>>905408
Wouldn't the first/third in the picture work for you?
>>
>>905236
Helping op.

>>905566
Shit... It happened to me too. Screen cap.
>>
>>905565
Yes it would. Sorry I'm retarded and didn't open the thumbnail and assumed it was only the second and fourth variety. I'll go buy some.

I want to build a game/card table but I'm such a fucking autist i don't know "how" to buy the wood or how much materials would cost. Is there standard lengths or what? I haven't done any woodworking since high school.

>>905625

It's a work in progress
Actually I just started, and got the base formed.
So.... Right now it's just an oak board. But the ends are nice and round

Dont know if you could call it carpentry, but im doing a temporary desk with some metal shelve legs, those thin angle iron with perforations into it for nuts and bolts, mostly used in shops
>>
>>905707
Based on my desk i have at work, I'd say probably around 5'x30" and about 30" high

Assuming you buy 3/4 select pine boards for the top that you will edge glue yourself, and you pick up 4 prefab home depot table legs, you'll probably pay about $175. You can build it for $20 if you cut your own cut/glue your own laminated boards and legs out of 2x4's.
