Thanks! I just designed it as I made it. If you want some more detailed pics I'll take some & post them up but there's not too much more to see that isn't in the above pics. The frame is 40x4mm RHS & 40x4mm angle steel, top 19mm hardboard topped plywood (maybe more beefy than some people would need) A few scraps of aluminium for the slider rail & saw panel edging, some 1.6mm stainless steel for the riving knife. Key is to take plenty of time getting the top & vice really square then set everything up from that.

Cheers
Clint

Very nice! This looks like a Glen-L design. Need to hear a little story behind this one

The first thing I did was cut off the rear subframe and make a new one.

We made this:



And since we live in a 4 room A frame, I had to make this:














I started digging on Jan 1 this year. The last shot was taken today when we opened the doorway into the exiting basement and painted the new basement. The upstairs is rough framed and insulated, trying to finish the basement and get the dirtwork and patio in before the snow flies. I laid every block myself (I had never even seen it done before) and mixed every bit of mortar in a harbor freight tub with a shovel. The rest of it has been built by myself and two friends on the weekends and holidays. Approx cost so far is budgeted at around $15 a square foot.

Good eye and thank you.

Glen-L Dyno Mite

I got a bulkhead kit from Glen-L in 2005 to have a retirement project. I was all assholes and elbows for the first summer and got it to the fussy stage where all the interior bits and deck needed to get done. Life got in the way and the poor thing sat in my garage for years.

Wench quit smoking and told me that the only place I could smoke was the garage ... so I decided to dig in and finish the boat ... I quit smoking too ...

Now that this one is done I'm looking for a new project ... probably a sailboat ... :-)

I didn't make it, but I thinks its pretty sweet so I thought I'd share. My brother in law used to work for a lumber mill, and built this out of bits from the scrap pile.



Hooks are made from bolts, end brackets are made from some big ole pieces of chain.



Works great!



Need to paint it, but good enough for now.
