    Man,
    That's some cool construction work. I really like the round door and the shutters.
    The kids should love playing and hanging out in that cool hide out.
    Good job.

    I dig your hardware ... Lockset & Hinges that is . The Williamsburg beaded Clapboard siding is a pretty nice touch , also. It takes a talented carpenter to pull off those details . Is that, by chance your occupation ?

    Thank you! The door handle is for a screen door and can not lock you out (thinking ahead for older brother vs little brother). The beaded siding is all vinyl, I like it more than dutchlap. I am not a carpenter by trade, just as a hobby. I have a little wood shop that I tinker around in. By day I am an electrical contractor, mostly commercial/industrial/farm ag with a little residential mixed in (y)

    Washed my boat this afternoon. The Live Oaks loose all there leaves in the spring. Then some kind of tassel thing. Nice new leaves and a big mess in the yard. And in the boat.

    Jeff , I"ve got the same piece . Did you do the Stitching on that leather?. Perfect size , your 1911 won't hang up on that.

    They don't seem to, pretty easy to pop them loose with your thumb.

    I got tired of the driver locking hub giving me fits. In fact it never actually worked when I got this thing so I had 3 wheel drive. I also wanted more real estate in the back so out goes that storage box.
    The two inner tabs ride the groove on the hub dial and they were completely splayed out. I bent them back in place but it's probably just a matter of time...

    Aisin hubs. It’s a bit worn. They actually lock and fully unlock now so I’m pleased with that.

    mathes-fan.png Late 40's Mathes Cooler fan...stripped, stained, new grill, replaced the fan unit (too small, but all I could find quickly). Hairpin legs added by PO but I cut them down to 1/3 the length. Fits into my midcentury-themed office...;)
