Well, that’s it for the MC construction Co. (mancave) for this year! Maybe next year I’ll make a dump truck to go with the fleet….I enjoyed making them and showing them off but now, summer is upon us, so my thoughts are on rigging my sailboat and enjoying the great outdoors!

I’m sure my grandkids will be putting the fleet to the test this summer!! Test results to follow in the fall. :)

took a little longer than expected as I didn’t have all the harware but overall, I’d say about a week of “retired” time…..

I just got my copy of wood magazine with the skip loader in it. Wife actually commented that it was cute and I have started the build process. Trying to build it all out of scraps that are in the shop, and I am switching from maple to cherry (which is what I have). Walnut was no problem :)

Neat, living where you do a sail boat is a must. I will be starting my tower cranes soon. I have been waiting for the one to be erected in front of my hooch to take measurements. Actually we will have 7 Liebher tower cranes on the site.
