Like my sailing ship, it doesn’t count as a finished project all by itself, but it does count in that it is a completed phase of the shop floor. I am blogging the project here http://lumberjocks.com/NateMeadows/blog/30732

Thanks for looking and thanks to all of you for your encouragement!

well ill leave my hoof print in both places…each and every stage is great to see and it sure stirs the imagination as to how its all going to look…i hope you planned it out well so that none of the equipment covers the important parts…now that could get frustrating…but once i put my main machines in place 16 years ago, thats where it all stays…i cant do the ole switch a rue thing, im a creature of habit, it would drive me nuts for months if i moved my tablesaw…i would be going back to the same old spot…anyway…love to see it nate…bob

Len,

Thank you so very much! Don’t feel like that, I am just a man like you…actually a broken man much of the time:) There are so many out there that are full of more talent and skill than I. I just do what I can when I can…it is a labor of love!

Very Respectfully

Nate

I’m with Paul. Love the waves! They look angry and fit the monster perfectly. Keep on keepin on. We’re all waiting for the end product ;but no hurry :). For me woodworking is all about the journey and the end result just happens at the end.
