Lots of kayaks, here are just a few
10 1/2 foot whitewater boat


18 foot single sea kayak



21 foot tandam sea kayak, really a pretty boat, no good pics of her though..




Carbon fiber fairings, aluminum skid plate, etc, etc for my Dakar. There was a thread in Thumpers about it awhile ago


In the foreground is an open canopy and new turtle deck I made for my Pilatus B4. These fit the same as the original full canopy and turtle deck. Open cockpit flying is fun..


Turtle deck is carbon fiber and glass, canopy frame is carbon fiber and spruce. Installed on the plane


I have made lots of aircraft stuff I never bothered to get pics of...custom wheelpants for a Stearman biplane, cowlings for: a re-engined Bucker Jungmeister, some kind of formula racer, RV-3. Tailcones for a couple of different planes etc.



All kinds of furniture, cabinets, boxes etc... This is a little craft box built for my other half. It closes up neatly and she keeps all her paints and brushs in it. Very light so she can tote it down to the shop when I am working and back home when we are finished for the day.




Boat for my other half, posted in dream boats thread sometime back.


A little fish! I think I was bored in the shop waiting for glue to dry or something, anyway, lots of scrap laying around so I made this guy. There is a bunch of stuff like this around the house...


Uhhh, I could probably do a couple of pages of stuff if I thought about it and could find all the pics. I keep thinking I should do a little website that was sort of like a portolio.

I will not live long enough to build all the stuff I would like...the list is kinda long and getting longer.

Eric
Eric, you'd be a handy guy to know, you do some seriously nice work. Are those Newfound kits?

No kits, the kayaks are my own designs, the fishing boat hull is a very modified Paul Fisher design


Thanks for all the kind compliments!

My Cigar Box Guitar





I bought the pickup from a guy who hand winds them. The rest of the hardware is from a guitar shop. I recently switched to a 5A VOX amp. Yes, it rocks.

The upper is just a ball bearing I fished out of a scrap barrel at work. The lower anvil is a pillow block insert with no greasing hole.

I made a good woman steal,
I made an old woman blush,

Tiny, old, crappy video cap of a 6-string bass guitar I built from scratch. Even wound the pickup and built the preamp.
