No, the birdhouse won’t be a floating birdhouse. That is an idea though. @##$# you! I have enough crazy idea for this project now, and you have to give me more! Please understand I’m only joking. I’m not really mad. Then again. I guess that would depend on what definition of mad you want to use. My wife says I’m mad all the time. Of course, she uses terms such as crazy and nutty as a fruitcake.

I’ll be adding installment to the blog at key points of the construction. I hope things go smoothly and that means daily.

I don’t know if I’d quite go that far, but I am proud of it. It turned out much better than my original idea would have.

Thanks. I couldn’t think of a better place to start than the paddle wheel.

Looks good William. I haven’t logged on much lately, did so today and see you’re already on the #4 blog! I like your method of paddle wheel construction better that what I had thought of. I tend to over think things sometimes. I found some pictures of my dad’s ol ship #33. I think I’m going that route, but haven’t even started yet. I have some “day job” work that’s taking me into the evening hours to complete lately. Well at least my paddle wheel plans I drew up had the wheel the same color.
