I will start by saying that I am fine. The boat is also good, although I won’t know for sure until I dig around some more and flip her over. […]
Okay, this first picture is before both wheels are up, but the light was just too cool, not to post it. The 14 foot wooden wheel is off its track a […]
It is one if the watershed facts of woodworking. You need to make a jig to make a jig to make something right. It’s always true and always worth a […]
