I now have 120 hours in the build and the boat weight is 779 lb. I have been weighing each piece as it is installed. A look from under the boat. with all the side plywood installed, This boat has a 8 foot beam and 19.5 ft long. A inside look at one of the butt splice backer boards. Next we have to trim the side panel down and fair them even with the top of the chine logs. I used a router with a flush trim bit to get the sides down to the small lip you see in this pict...
I now have 105 hours in the build and the boat weight is 622 lb. I have been weighing each piece as it is installed. I know I said at the end of the last blog segment that I was done with the frame, but I have decided to install a under deck fuel tank. So before I can install the plywood I need to add a little structural support for the tank. I used a router and made several recesses in two of the frames to hold a section of 2” x 4”. I put in 4 of these. Finished frame r...
I finally got all the cracks and rotten spots fixed on my customer’s table top. I had to buy about $80 worth of resin to fix it. this wood was so porous and crumbly that tape would not stick to it. it seemed to just suck down resin like it was a sponge. This is a before picture some of the cracks and cavities were so big i could fit my fingers in them some photos after I filled in the cracks and sanded it to level the lumps out. I will give it a final pour of resin once the un...
Back in 10aSEE (April of 2012) a co-worker gave me a log of pecan that had fallen in his yard. He tried to slice it up with a chain saw and got discouraged so he asked if I wanted it. Well, heck yeah! So I found a local sawmill up there and he sliced it up for me. ...Hard to tell in the picture, but that big saw blade up there is almost 7 feet tall. . ..And here’s what I ended up with....So now it’s been almost 3 years, time to see what I’ve been holding on to. ..Didn...
Made this one for a good friend who turned 70 last weekend. Geeze, we ARE getting old, aren’t we :-).Stacked up and glued a few pieces of wood, ....Cut the blocks into a “sorta round” shape and super-glued a small piece of 2X4 to it for a turning base. I usually dont have any idea what will come from the block once I start turning. I just start cutting and see what “feels right”. ...Here’s what it looks like with 3 coats of Danish oil. ...And here’s t...
I just got thru making a Guitar stand and after sanding I would like to get all of the dust off of it. I don’t want all the fine dust to ruin the finish and I heard that either Acetone or Mineral Spirits can be used to wipe down the project with a rag. Has anyone used this method or know if this is a good process.
A Lot has happened since my last blog entry First lets start with the project statusHours. 101.0 Cost $2551.09 Last February 2014 we packed up and moved to Houston for a new career. The Garwood project was dismantled and shoved in a shed until we found a house with a suitable workshop aka garage and the project could be relocated. I spent the better part of the summer setting up the workshop in the garage. Once that was complete I built a new strongback and resumed the build. I fi...
