here in portland, or there's a place called the "rebuilding center."  it's basically a salvage place for structural products and homey type stuff like that.  we have a few salvage places like that.  you might be able to find something similar in your area.

re: aprilkiss' comment.  if you cut off the bottle neck, you can also give this part to a guitar player.  there is a thing called a "bottle neck" that guitar players use for playing slide guitar (or something).  most are made out of metal, but the originals were apparently made from real bottle necks.  i once sawed one off with a hack saw (using a special glass-cutting blade), sanded the end and gave to my boyfriend (now my ex).  he LOVED it.  
5  Oregon / Oregon: Northwest / Portland: classes on: August 17, 2003 09:21:18 PM
hey all,

OCAC (http://www.ocac.edu/) is great for crafting / arts classes... I've taken a few. The only problem is that now I'm living a more frugal lifestyle. Does anybody know of cheap classes? I'm particularly interested in fiber arts and metals.

a friend and i were just chatting about martha.  we love her too.  we say, "you go girl."

i hate how she's considered such a dragon lady or b*tch.  if any man were in her shoes he'd be praised and revered.

i love the crafts on her site.  fun stuff!

i've always been weirded out by the whole lye thing.  my grandmother used to use it for all kinds of horrible cleaning purposes... and it smells bad and i've seen her get lye "burns."

it seems like such an odd thing to put in soap.  it seems like a toxic thing to put on my body.  are there alternatives to lye?  i know the veg. glycerine soaps don't need it, but what about other options?
