  1. Some of you older members of The Patriot Woodworker may remember my shop build from about 3 years ago. The project got put on hold for a couple of years due to the wifes, and mother in laws health issues and simply running low on funds to continue the project. I'm now finally getting back to the project. For the newer members, here are some before, & after photos of the project. I'll be posting more as I get things done.
  2. Ran across there pictures using trailer jacks for moving lathes. Found it quite interesting.
  3. Perusing images for our next wiki page for Balsam Fir, I was looking for furnishings and projects made from the fir, and found this absolutely cool business that sells these huts, and frankly, the prices are fair too, considering the handwork and craftsmanship that goes into one of these, very neat. Enjoy! Link: http://gute.ca/home
  4. This is part of my camping gear we use to put down under the awning on the motor home. I am putting the long 8" nails with washers around the edges so the mower can go over the edge without causing problems. We used this stuff for three months at a time for 3 or 4 summers. I know it won't last much longer but I'm getting where the weed eater puts me in a chair for a few days each time so anything will be welcomed... Yes the new plastic tarp under the grass is the freebie from HF for showing up for they had run out of the little flash lights I like and have acquired a big box full over the years so maybe the tarp will last a couple of months. This is the plastic wood I ordered from somewhere in Ohio in around 1984 and still looks as good s the day it got here and installed it on all the benches at the go cart track we opened that year and it all still looks like new..but can't say that for the metal parts of the benches I welded up back then also. People , it needs paint for it looks terrible but still good to sit on! I also put the 2x6 plastic wood in one of the trailers back then and it is still so slick if I don't tie things down by the time I get home nothing is left in the bed that I just bought... and like I said before, it only takes one time to learn a lesson.
  5. I need to add solid sides to my trailer so that I can pick up mulch. Please review my idea and let me know your thoughts. Purchase 3/8 x 4 x 8 CDX sheet of plywood. Purchase 2 X 1x4x8' of treated lumber. 1. Cut the plywood to fit the trailer length and width. 2. Cut the 1x4 into 3/4" square and mill a 3/8 deep by plywood thickness width dado down the middle. 3. on the top cord taper so water will drain. 4. on the top cords bottom install two saw curfs 1/16" deep 1/16" in both sides. (Water drip edge). before glue 5. on the bottom cord top taper to the edge so water will not sit on the surface. 6. on the bottom cord bottom install two saw curfs 1/16" deep 1/16" in both sides. 7. The vertical cord on the ends of the plywood would fit under the top and bottom cords. 8. Wrap the CDX with the 1x4 glue with poly. 9. install a 1/4" tapered bead of latex caulk to the joints.5. 10. Paint the assembly with a good external acrylic paint. 11. During install on the trailer use carriage bolt in the wood and thru the metal rail then double nutted. Use SS fasteners I will send in pictures once I get to the build. Do you think this will last for years or months? The idea is to properly seal so that the plywood and 1x4 will last. Is this over kill?
  6. Needed a trailer badly while building a go-cart track in 1980. I buy nothing new it seems. I found a guy who had bought out a horse trailer manuf. This might be better I thought for all the axles were of the dropped axle design so they would be lower to the ground for easier access and exit. Only thing was, they were too narrow. Never fear I thought. I bought three axles cut them in two and added some heavy duty pipe in the middle enough so the width of the beds would be 76 inches wide. Not remembering how I come up with that number. And the long one 18' long? And most lumber yards stock 16 and 20 foot 2x12's. Lots of things I am wondering about from that time The wood floors in both trailers have finally went to the happy hauling ground. I used at least 1/4 thick metal under the floors and some 3/8" thick. This time I could buy 2x6 way cheaper than 2x12's but hey there are exactly 120 holes already there that match up to 2x12's I used a drill press back then. Now I would have to use a hand drill. Too bad I don't have a magnetic drill. I sold them way back yonder but never dreamed I could use one in retirement. This is why I am typing this today. Labor is not the same on a person if the same job is done more than 45 years apart. I used a 2 quart paint cup both times with the gun about 45 inches on hoses from the cup. This time I would say this set up weights at least 100 lbs more than the last time I painted this trailer... I also deducted back then I completely built 2 trailers and painted both trailers in the same time it took to grind off the paint off this tandem axle trailer and repaint it. I think this time one good coat of primer will out last me so......No I didn't do that to the cat, He was already that color!!!! That 2 quart cup was a time saver back when I had the repair refinish shop. I could put one coat on a bedroom suit without refilling. Unscrewing the dam thing was a bitch though!!!!!!! The rubber gasket cup seal use to not last long then they switched to a leather gasket and that solved the problem... The stars was on my side all yesterday for the wind started lightly blowing from the north and continued all day long so I left the motor home sit just outside the door and didn't have to move it because of the painting.
