Winter hobby Projects

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

Winter hobby Projects

Postby chief » Sun Feb 05, 2012 12:53 pm

This is a Boat my Dad built in the winter of 1950, but he never finished it, it is made of double planked mahogany put together with tooth picks,
it is 36 inches long and 10 inches wide, I still have in in the living room, and I just finished a Brass Cannon I started after I seen the Model of the Lobster boat that Homstead made,
The cannon is 17 1/2 X 3 inches and is 29 lbs, The wood work on the cannon is not as good as if my Dad hade done it, he was a master Carpenter, I'm more in to metal work,
so here is some pictures.

Very nice work, again, chief. You inherited a lot of your talent I see. Great as usual.

Hi John :: It sounds like your having fun on the Rocking horse, be sure to show us some pictures, This is what I have on my front porch, it's not a rocking horse,
But it looks good on the front porch, The AppleBee's Restaurant burnt Down here in Hot Springs a few years ago, And they put this in the trash,
Me being a old Navy Chief and a Good Dumpster Diver, I saved the poor old dirty Horse from the Dump. and Wife Was Happy too, It only took Her five days to clean it up. LOL
