I’m going to blame you for me not entering the bird house contest! It’s coming along nicely, William. While nothing is a lock, you are odds on favorite.

The thing I like about the 23 gauge pin nails is you can sand them instead of trying to use a nail set. Even by hand.

I smell a victory in your near future. Having grown up in Louisiana riding the riverboats, and loving birds, this one’s a winner for me.

William, I would argue the point that the other side is the same! It cannot be the same, similar yes, cause the boat would be facing the other direction! ;-) (just being picky!!!) It is looking great! So far you have my vote!

Looking pretty good there William. I like the way you did the boat name better than painted letters on a sign. You’re something else with that scroll saw.

The only hope for anybody else in the birdhouse contest is that you don’t get this done in time, keep going, good luck.

Thanks again everyone. Flattery will get you everywhere. Can’t remember where I heard that one before, but I like it anyway.
Wait until you see the stairs I’ll be posting in a few minutes on the next post.
When you’re right, you’re right. The other side is actually the exact opposite.
I’m glad you like it. My wife says I can’t even make a piece of firewood without adding some kind of scroll work to it. She said this once too often. Once when watching the boys bring firewood over to the house for the fireplace for winter, I scrolled out the words “scroll work” and attached it to a piece of fire wood. Then I had them to be sure to give that piece of fire wood to her. I can’t say what she called me on here. It’s supposed to be a family appropriate site.
If the good Lord’s willing and the creeks don’t rise. And if the creeks do rise I’ll see if I can save to project so I can finish it anyway.
And if the good Lord was not willing, I don’t think I’d have gotten this far with it. I won’t go into quotes on that one though since I try to keep my religion off of here. Thank you though. Although I can’t help but answer with humor when I can, I am humbled by all the compliments.
And to all
I am happy that you all seem to be enjoying this build. I am having a blast with it. This is the first thing I have built in a while that I didn’t go at least partially be some kind of pattern, even if it was a pattern that I drew myself long time ago. I’m having more fun than a monkey in a room full of bouncy balls just making it up as I go along.


Have your say...
