crazy bentwood project!

-yeah, dig that crazy bentwood design my man has going! It blends better with the surrounding landscape! I was skeptical at first, but he now has it comfortably supported enough that i even got on the roof to apply some sawdust & woodglue filler to holes and cracks.
-reclaimed and salvaged (or in this case, already naturally felled) materials, of course.

-just 2 weeks left!
We (mostly he) did get a lot closer to finishing before we left, but it got too dark to get a phone pic. Hopefully the next picture will be accompanied by a pic of dinner!

now you can put those old hand tools to use, seeing how there is no outlet near to plug into

I am howling! What in the world are you building now Christine? That’s what I need- a Tarzan to help me out around here!

OK, I’ll have to admit that you’ve kind of got me stumped on this one. What do you have going on here. Is it a dog house (not the kind for dogs, the kind us husbands have to live in sometimes)?, a tree house?, a hunting blind?, a photography stand? Where’s the ladder? How tall is IT? How many people does IT hold? What kind of wind will IT hold up to? I hope that this is only part one. Seriously, this one has me intrigued so I hope that you have some more info coming.

-IT’S A FREAKIN DEER STAND!! -WHERE THE HECK ARE ALL Y’ALL FROM! -A SUPPER GITTER!

Christine, I’m just going on with you. I hope that ya’ll get the biggest deer in the whole woods. Just don’t let anybody fall out of it. That’s a long way down. :-)

rg=that worked out the window of the single-wide until my Dad gave privileges to some some fun-hunter friends.

-one was hanging out eating while he was working on it -radio and all! -He said if he has no luck when the season starts, he’s going to employ that technique -radio and hammer call

-helluva-i want a small tasty one, and it’s not me i’m worried about falling -it’s that stand!

-the kids got to roll that supper round to the trailer on their mini 4-wheeler, Dennis!
