So, my 25 year old son and I want to build a trellis for his hops for homebrew. This is our start, green bamboo that I cut and transported home. Happy fathers day all! Okay purists, it’s a grass! Not WOOD. Posting anyway.

A good deal of the tools I own are older than I. (02/59) Some are quite a bit older. Every cast iron table, the columns for the DP and the lathe were rusted enough to make a grown man cry.

This build has been in ‘progress’ far too long. It started with a reset of my kitchen layout that my Wife and I agreed upon. Much of a back-story here, but in the essence of brevity, I’ll just say this is the point I got to quick...
