    picture posting

    Chuck, I may have failed pictures again? I noticed the pics from this post are gone.https://www.southernpaddler.com/community/threads/stitch-and-glue-no-plans.10784/. I think I reduced them to 800x 600 about 160 kband then posted them from my computer.... so there shouldn't be any half dressed...

    Flip Tool cart and ripping cedar

    The HH Restore is a good thing! I used foam roof panels in our old lake cabin in Ks. Was easy and worked good.

    Flip Tool cart and ripping cedar

    Thanks cardio rehabilitation seems to be working. My replumbed heart is recovering well, it's just powering a 77 year old body the bubble foil works better than expected. The sun shining on the side of the building was really heating the building more than the110ac could handle. Stays...

    Flip Tool cart and ripping cedar

    An improved full size version of last years Watermocassion copy. I've drawn the side panels on kraft paper with 1 inch more cutback and 14 inches longer will fine tune as I go. SS&G.

    Flip Tool cart and ripping cedar

    A couple of items that might interest builders. My shop in Texas is a portable building 12 x 20 so space is at a premium. I originally stored my table saw, planner,etc on shelves and carried them outside to a table.The days of carrying heavy equipment are probably over. Just before my bypass...

    Anchoring when fishing

    I think Joey has a good idea about the 2 cleats. I use an anchor Trolley while fishing brush piles in lakes. I also use my trolley while in brush piles I could move it back-and-forth and move around without changing my tire

    Pictures of Chucks strip pirogue?

    I think my real question is did you lay the board straight or bend them like Ron and I have been doing? Ive got a boat that has too severe curves to bend the 3/4 " strips. First time I had to rip the tumble home strips to 3/8 inch to make the strips follow the panel outlines. That's too hard for...

    Thanks, I bought the Gator plans several years ago, but reverted to modifying uncle John types. Somehow before I had missed "mark and cut the sides to fit" makes more sense now! Thanks for relating the idea to stitch and glue. I'll play with it. I still have a 5 lb lift limit, and running a...

    Rocker, length

    Been a little slow lately, more reading than posting or commenting. 3 weeks ago, I had open heart surgery 6 bypasses. At 77 it took some careful consideration to decide to do the surgery. But I did it and I am happy with the decision. I know some of you have had this procedure, I salute you it...

    Foam Brushes

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MY7X3UA/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_fabc_NVN7RJAEE2TGRJT8WF2S?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 I use these. I reuse them by letting the epoxy cure, then cutting the foam at a rt angle on the band saw. Don't need the chisel point just use the new edge. One of my posts on here has a pic...
