  1. Thanks for the comment and the likes. Dave - I am finding that i'm spending more time building now then before. By having this desk in the rec room I feel more included then isolated building in the the utility room. It's nice to be able to hangout with my wife and kids and still do your own thing. Plus it's nice to have natural light peek in too. I do still have utility room space set up which i use for more of the dirtier work. The carpet does cause a problem. Last week I dropped a carriage wheel and it took me like 10 minutes to find it, lol. I wasn't sure what to do with the top so I recently ordered a 24"X 36" self cutting mat. Should protect it some what. Originally I was thinking of getting handles for the drawers but now i hate to drill holes in them. Another idea I thought was to router the ends, but not sure if its possible now. The way they open is to grab them on the edges and pull, no special hardware. They do open easily. The desk came in three pieces and each piece is quite heavy. The top is screwed to each end from underneath and its free standing. The top is 30" X 60" X 1 7/8" thick. And the drawers inside dimensions are 12 1/2" X 25 1/2" and vary in depth from 1 3/4" to 8" deep. The desk is super stable even with all the drawers fully open. Jerry
  2. I finished organizing my new custom desk that i had the local Mennonite build for me. The desk is made out of wormy maple wood and all the plastic containers were bought at Dollarama. Surprising they fit quite well. Hope you enjoy it. Cheers Jerry
  3. Great job! Glad you got some sap when you did. We are back to winter in SWern Ontario. Jerry
  4. Very nicely done. What scale is it? Would you have a pic showing the whole thing? Cheers Jerry
  5. I really like the picture of the Bluenose, especially the sails they look old and worn. Jerry
  6. Michael, I would like to share my newest purchase with you. 1963, but still runs like a charm. Thanks for the help. Cheers. Jerry Just wondering, what type of mill do you have? LOL
  7. Michael, Your workshop is filling up.... Love it, Very Nice! Jerry
  8. Moxis, I wonder if they would deliver it to Canada,,, hmmm Thanks for the site.
  9. Michael, Thanks. I'll keep an eye out for one on kijiji. I have been looking for Southbend 9A for some time but this one might be a better lathe if I can find one. Cheers Jerry
  10. Michael, love your new space! If you don't mind me asking what type of Lathe is that you have? Jerry
  11. My wife and I hiked the Maitland Trail (48km) on Saturday. This trail starts in Auburn, Ontario and it follows the Maitland River to Goderich. It was a very scenic hike.

    Pet Peeves

    I'm also annoyed with double spot parking. But my biggest Pet Peeve are smokers that litter on your property. I'm not a smoker nor do I judge anyone for choosing to smoke. But I cant stand smokers that fling their butts on your property. WTF! These just don't disintegrate and go away. I'm the one who's stuck cleaning them up all the time, grrrr. I don't get. Cigarettes buts no different then trash. And I would never throw trash on someones property, why are butts different?
  13. I spent the weekend cleaning and organizing my space. Cheers Jerry

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
