Topic tags/keywords: resource question tip trick different types of wood tools skill and style used in almost all of the above photos

The following were emailed to me by an engineer that I worked with before retirement. He knew I would enjoy them. I am hoping that other LJ’s will enjoy viewing them also. Although all of the photos do not directly deal with wood, the engineering factors are just great. I hope I am not violating any rules or regulations with the pictures that do not deal with wood, if that is the fact, I am sorry and it will not happen again. I just thought I would share what I thought was in the relm of what woodworks like me would also enjoy with other LJ’s. I hope I was right.

HOPE YOU ALL ENJOY, I DID.

All are great examples of what the human mind can produce!

The Lady Bower overflow almost gave me vertigo when I looked at other photos of it. It’s amazing that there is something like a catch fence around it, though. I could see a small boat being drawn right into it. One photo shows a floating rope line as a warning, but…

There is a replica of the Norway church in Rapid City, SD. It is called “Stav Kirk.” I was going to school in the city when it was being built in the latter half of the ‘60s.

WOW, Thanks everyone, I was a litle leary of posting these, but I figure there would be more like me who would appreciate great works, with or without using wood.

Great post, thoroughly enjoyed. I love that show about tree houses. I grew up playing on one and have always loved looking at and dreaming about building my own “super tree house” like what you see on that show.

I much impressed with the tree house, how is the door look like? Isn’t it good if they use pre-hang doors just like the miniature of this one at http://caldwells.com/door-shop.
