Finally finished up a serving table for the back porch. Hardest part was cutting all those pipe threads, even with a power threader was a lot of work.

Outstanding work,John and Harold. Perhaps a Stovebolt get together just to mill up some nice cherry, walnut and maple for the Stovebolt woodworkers to take home with them! Forget the bolts, rings, and bearings for a couple hours and let’s dig into a couple hardwood logs! Very nice!

Tom -- Don't forget Hambone! He's pretty handy around that sort of thing.

About 3 years ago, I rescued two giant wild cherry burls from a job site before they went to a burn pile. We could figure out what to do with them ... I might try taking a chunk out of one and turning it into my interpretation of the Holy Grail ... wink And *finally* putting the Grizzly lathe to real use ...

Just a while back I helped a friend fix some peeling paint on his aluminum boat. The paint in area around the hole in the picture was completely gone and corrosion had crept underneath the paint all the way to the edge to the right. It was painted with speckle paint, and I needed to get a pressure cup setup for my paint gun. Shot it with epoxy primer after cleaning up to bare metal, and then the speckle paint (Zolatone.) I was really surprised how well it came out. It was almost invisible where we did the repair.

If you're smart enough to take it apart, you darn well better be smart enough to put it back together.

Just to let you know, I did get John Lucas' Moderator status fixed in here so he's able to edit and repair away. Big thing, in keeping with the Brain Trust that started this idea: images are a must for a post. So, if you don't have an image to go with a post you start, your post may end up back in the old Greasy Spoon. Just saying. John's not the bad guy here. Like the BT said (something to this affect) who just wants to HEAR about what you're doing. As we say:


John L may pull you aside to give you some lessons on putting a caption on your images. I did all those in the first page with captions and after that, I left them blank but at least removed the captions that carried over.

Okay fellas. Have fun and keep things tidy.

I turned it back over and built a support for the front seat backs.
I then primed and painted the upper deck seafoam green.
The seats and steering were put in.
I had to reshape the windshield because it came off a different boat.
The motor got new coils, wires, fuel lines, bottom resealed, carb rebuilt. I learned more about it than I wanted to.
Two weeks ago it went out for a test and tune ride.
And it has a name!
