Surely there is not enough choss left for an arsenal like that Mr. EEE . . . you gonna start drillin' the sidewalk for chrissakes?

Maybe you got a drillin' drone set up.

Sometimes modern is cool. The treads ride on the single stringer. Of course,
none of this is legal so I built a balustrade out of 3/8 CDX and 2x3's to
get the final and then started over. All the wood is bamboo; the treads are
a full 2" thick! I made the dresser, too. Your do not deceive, the backs
of the four left, or right from the front, sections of the dresser have
Plexi backs. I'm not sure the owner ever cogently expressed a rational reason
why he wanted them that way. It might have been some sort of paranoia about
somebody sneaking up the stairs on him. He is a lawyer after all.

This is a 1200 cc BMW two wheel drive side car I finish this fall. The side car is all hand made out of aluminum. Kind of a neat feature thereís a drive shaft that runs from the rear wheel of the bike to the side car wheel.

Pretty cool Eh? Dawg.

Very cool contributions from everyone! Double Wow on that sidecar! I know how much work that would be. How many hours on that thing you figure?

Tony- No I didn't build those kayaks, I wish I had those kind of skills! I think my sled handles better in the snow... ;) funny thing is you actually get better traction on water but sleds sure don't float!
Those kayaks are my landlords.. He's got a ladder on one of them and its crushing the skirt lip. It's actually quite a shame. They never get used, just sit there..

I been slacking on my repair. I was waiting for that pto cover and the weather has been excellent for climbing. Still managed to get my carb done last week tho.

I gapped the rings to .016 which is the tightest that spi recommends. Bombi says you can push it to .010 but that seems a bit much.

Big Mike... tsk, tsk, tsk... using an iced tea can to soak or hold carb parts in. Where's the old steel Bud can? Are you building this machine and giving it to a little girl?





(BTW, I love this kind of rebuild. Well done!)

reilly maybe im too real,
we digested everyone of those
wheat grass seeds,
and then fished them out of our
stool;
we thought it
might accelerate the
germination.

This wood was milled from local trees - the Cypress for the table and bench is a small part of 4 60 ft trees which were threatening a house. The base cuts were close to 3 ft. and we took about 15 or 20 logs off the job, all craned out. The euc grew on the playing field of the school I went to as a kid, La Jolla Elementary. It was also removed because it was deemed a hazard. The tree was 30 ft tall when I was in 3rd grade, and I happened to notice it had been cut down a few months ago when I was at a school event with my daughter. The guys doing the job that day had problems with their chainsaws, and couldn't finish bucking up the trunk, so it was still laying on the ground where they dropped it. It would have gone to the dump, but I arranged to pick it up the next day, and milled it in my driveway. It yielded 8 slabs.

It's drying well, and should make something really cool in a few years.
