    NorthWind Finally.....

    Looking great Darrel! Couple of quick questions.... Can you give me an idea of how many board feet you ended up using? How many strips total? And it looks like your just using flat strips and not bead and coving them? I'm thinking real hard about building something like this. Thanks in advance Brad

    I've used about the same as everybody else. 2 sheets of cheap plywood cut in half for a 2X16 table I used cinder blocks to hold it all up and level

    Ugly Drum Smoker

I did my first smoke on this thing today and I'm pretty impressed. Did up one sausage roll stuffed with mushrooms,onions and cheese and a boston butt. Sausage...

    Couple more done

    Very nice David! Someday I'll venture into the bow making side of the game....... As far as the fast flight versus the dacron. I'm shooting fast flight now as I'm finding it much quieter on my Border Black Douglas. I've found the same on several other bows as well. I don't have a clue if its...

    South Florida Archery season in full swing!

    Thanks guys, David, These are just the regular white tailed deer. Florida isn't known for its big deer. An average mature buck will weigh 110-120 pounds. I didn't weigh either of these deer but I'd guess them at 80 or 90 pounds. The first was a yearling, Last years fawn. and the second was a...
