  1. Pinrail rope coils

    I saw someone here once make a small jig out of a block of wood with 2 nails. Each nail was on a different face of the wood and then after they wrap the line around that the nails they then wetted down the line with dilute white glue and let it dry. Once they took the nails out the coil was bent at an angle. And when they laid it on top of the belaying pin it seem to drape over the side and hang down straight.

    Just for noodling around. My '39 Holton.
  3. Great job!!! Appreciate all the work you do to keep the site up and running.
  4. First Resawing Adventure

    hehe all this is new to me so that is exactly what I am doing. Although your description is pretty good.
  5. The one in the picture is a good start. Other intro type books include Ship Modeling from Stem to Stern by Milton Roth and Ship Modeling Simplified by Frank Mastini. Anything from Seawatch books (one of our sponsors) is outstanding.

    Being able to mill your own wood looks like a great skill to have especially with the apparent lack of suppliers these days. Was wondering where you get the larger pieces of wood to start with

    Cliff, that wood looks great. How nice is that sander eh? I was looking at the Echo cross section wood list and there are so many different sizes looks like you are off to a great start.
