In this video I share some tips and suggestions as I show how I handle and transport some of my projects without damaging them.

Everybody’s needs are different, but I hope that sharing these tips will help inspire solutions for your needs when handling & transporting projects.

Thanks guys for checking it out. I know it is not an all inclusive video on handling and transporting projects, but I could not pass up the opportunity to use this project and the window frame to demonstrate these tips.

These are live projects and they provide perfect real-world examples of how I am do things.

I hope it just helps broaden the ideas for others as they run into various situations for handling and transporting projects.

Good tips, and one more reason for having a good pickup rack. Could not help but notice that stack of
kindling wood in left side of the picture, are you planing another hanging lamp, or are those skids for the
new dog house? Thank you for sharing.

Thanks everyone for watching.

Roger, that stack is just the cutoffs from a larger stack that I have been milling and air drying for the last 3 yrs. I am using them to build a set of rustic cabinets.

You bet Charles. Was loading my work van on the job site today and for some reason you just popped into my mind. Was hoping that you were still keeping at it.

I’ll tell you what, don’t think I ever get to just sit back and cruise. It is still work for me to keep it going. But I am hitting higher and higher goals all the time.
