That's what I was thinking. The ability to paint consistent thickness lines parallel to another edge? That just screams ability to pinstripe. I don't think most people recognize what a rare skill that is.

After building a trail system you need to build a trail head/pavilion right?

Well after pulling a lot of very old lumber out of a building to reuse I designed a basic structure and assembly commenced.



Looking good at this point but it needed a roof. Rafters and stringers attached.


It was built backwards, but that wasn't a big deal as I just moved it around and back to it's resting spot with the skidsteer. Then I bought some galvanized roofing panels, built a floor and it was done.


It looks a whole lot smaller when you see it in the back corner of the field.


Next Spring I will get a map installed in it and maybe run power to it for event use.

Just a few random questions . Are you gonna TIG weld it or just bolt it, and are you gonna through some rubber bushing material between the frame and the tank? before you go farther what about dropping that notch into that so it drops that lower bubble, then its even lower?

I don't know how to TIG weld, and paying a good welder is spendy, so no on the welding part.

Final assembly will include never used nylon lock nuts and blue locktite.

Yes on the rubber cushion between those two areas. (material already bought)


I don't understand this question - "before you go farther what about dropping that notch into that so it drops that lower bubble, then its even lower?"

Ok...I know what you are talking about.







That is the rear of the tank.

Does it make sense now?

TIG welding is easy, maybe the easiest of all welding. It's buying a good machine, argon bottle/reg that's the hard part.

I wouldn't say that unless you've done a fair share of TIG welding. MIG is a lot easier for the person who has never welded before.

But TIG is the pinnacle of welding IMO. I'll have a nice fully equipped Miller Dynasty 200 next year. I was just trying out a Dynasty 700 a couple of months ago...damn nice!

I've been whacking a few of these out the last couple of days. They're simple and make good little Christmas gifts. I weld a loop on the back for the wall or three feet to the underside for a table.
