Where can I find sturdy wooden crates? Like fruit crates?
I know they have ones at Michaels and JoAnn fabrics, but they are little flimsy, more for crafts.
Where can I find a reliable source of decently sturdy wooden crates? [more inside]

I'm looking for an object I once saw a picture of. It was an antique tool that was, I think, described as a japanese jade vise, or something similar. It was rectangular in shape, and consisted of a number of stacked wooden wedges that could be slid in and out in relation to one another to form an opening in which a gem could be securely held by the pressure of the wedges.

I am considering a wooden ship model as a housewarming gift, the giftee just bought a grand old Connectcut home on the water and loves sailing ships--and has nothing like this at all.
I know nothing about these models, but see that there are many sellers online. I am willing to spend money for something that is great. It appears that models of classic America's Cup yachts are popular (and do appear impressive). Any suggestions? what ships are best? Ok to buy online? a good gift?

Wooden fence repair question: I have a wooden round rail fence kind of like this
but with only two horizontal rows. One of the horizontal rails in the middle of the fence needs replacement. Is there some kind of magic trick for this, or do I just cut and hammer and crowbar until it pops in?

The great musical-instrument-on-plane paradox. How do you prepare (what case[s] do you buy and what strategies do you develop) when you need to travel on many different kinds/scales of airlines, with a delicate wooden instrument that MAY or MAY NOT be allowed as carry-on baggage (depending on circumstance, how full the plane is, and how much or little the inspectors care that it looks large, solid and "middle eastern")?

Do those wooden-bead car seat covers you see taxi drivers using (at least in NYC) really work? Are they comfortable for long drives?
