  1. Funny, I was waiting for that too! Did he use any glue on the chair or just trust to FRICTION? John
  2. At least they're solid wood! John
  3. They don't make trees LONG enough! John
  4. Oars are typically longer, and heavier, ride in an attached oarlock, and have a round (cylindrical) handle at the end. They are used in pairs, a left and a right. The paddle is lighter in weight, and is held with BOTH hands, hence the cross-wise grip. As for making your own, use waterproof glue for the blank, then all you really need is a sharp knife, although a spokeshave is safer. A cherry spine with cedar sides makes a good-looking paddle! John
  5. Sharp looking paddles, Robert! Having spent countless hours in canoes, I'd just like to point out that there IS a difference..... oars are used in rowboats! John
  6. FWIW, @Grandpadave52, the village of Welcome is about 25 minutes east of us, just north of the town of Port Hope. When I was a kid, there was a sign, placed by the town, that simply read "Welcome". Over time, it was decided that the town limits were about a mile or so south of the sign, and the little village (or collection of houses, really), took on the name on the old sign. But enough about us. Where on earth is Thank You? Inquiring minds want to know. It looks like it could be an Ontario road sign. John
  7. Thought I'd post this for you, John.
  8. Probably stale by the time you get them! John
  9. Nah. The first one's a plug-in, the second has a built-in generator. (Notice the crank handle on the right side.) John
  10. What some people will do to avoid work! But seriously, look after that. We'll wait. John .
  11. I can't figure out how to download the app. Even tried it on BOTH phones! John
  12. Cuts a square out of the back and sews it on the front! John
  13. Or maybe you're just keeping better company? John
  14. I heard that somewhere. John
