I love this thread too.

Holy Crap Rich! (speaking both literally and figuratively). How the hell was that deck still standing?

I've got new stuff on the worktable.. It all in shards at the moment so I'll have to get back with pics at a later date.

Retrofit window in a hundred year old garage c#m studio: took me twice as long to complete as I had estimated. Ha. Typical. ( I have no idea why the photos are coming out upside down - but you get the idea)

RockerMike, I hate to break it to you but the header is supposed to go over
the window. Well, some retard had to say it, right? :-)

Weege, the trees love you, man.

Rich Sims' pics show how over-engineered everything is.

Wilbeer - really nice doors!

I put in some lawn edgeing today! It was a work of art I tell ya.

Gunkie, why does a 14 yr old need a 9 footer? She going to Jaws or Cortez?

Hey Wilbeer, strong work man. Those look great! And, you're going to be building a house? Right on!

I'm just starting on a log structure for a playground. No photos yet, but it will look similar to this one I did a couple of years ago.

Nice work all!

Here is my most recent addition to the "farm", a chicken coop/run. We have a sum of zero domestic fowl experience in our home, but we dove in with 6 chicks and a tub this spring. My grandfathers would cringe at the opulence of this birdhouse, but it was fun to build.

The coop is built for 6-8 feather dinos.
Highlights include:
-Two recycled windows, with new homemade frames
-louvered and covered vent
-R13 insulation
-wired with one 15a recepticle
-linoleum floors/basin
-walk in door
-exterior access to nesting boxes
-8 X 12 covered run with walk in gate

Nobody is posting to this thread, and I'm stoked on the playground project I'm currently working on, so here's today's progress.

Lots of scribe work with the Lancelot. The Lancelot is a wheel with a chainsaw chain that goes on a grinder. It's used for sculpting logs.

Looking good, Brandon! But if I were you I'd consider asking my co-worker
before I took her picture. I'm not sure what kind of arm she has but I'm
thinking a brush-back was about to be delivered, if not an outright beaning! :-)

Is it just me or is that header not mated to the king stud in Haan's second reposted pic?

No offence meant, just askin'

Reilly, it's retribution for her posting an unflattering picture of me somewhere else. I was gassed from carrying logs and looked like a turtle.

She wouldn't mind, I asure you. My coworkers are pretty rad.

Thanks Wilbeer.

Brandon, just tell me you didn't have to peel those logs.
I did that once. My butt has never recovered.

I peeled most of them.

I love the workout I get from running a draw knife for a couple of days. More than a couple of days and I am hating it.

My shoulders are strong, it's all about changing your position as you peel to even out the pain.

Left side, right side, long reach, short reach. Repeat.

Edit; your butt only hurts when you have to straddle the smaller logs. The big logs stay put and you can move around them.

Double Edit; Ones sharpening skills are as important as ones peeling skills. Twenty minutes of peeling equals ten minutes of sharpening your iron.

so with a draw knife

do you pull it across the sharping stone
or do you clamp it and scrub it with the sharpner?

I learned to sharpen it sitting down, with one handle on the ground, and the other in my right hand. I'm a lefty, so I work through the stones, and finish with a strop, typical.
