This is not my project, but my sons and I helped Dad with it and I just had to share it with you. It’s just an old country flat bottom fishing boat that Dad used to help his uncle make when he was a kid. He has been wanting to make one for years. He cut down the pine tree himself, had the sawmill slice it up for him, bent the side boards. The bottom is toungue and groove. The last picture was the maiden voyage with My niece, my son, my Dad, and me. The lake is Nottely lake in Blairsville GA. You can see the results from the drought we had last year. I used some of the leftover sideboard to make my first project, a foot stool.
