BENT WOOD SHADE STRUCTURE [MOCK-UP]
BURNT FIR STUMP SOAKING TUB
This custom raft consists of a central foam filled dinghy, two redwood logs/pontoons from the property, redwood framing and decking. It has an electric motor for quite cruising around the pond. It was designed for leisure and use by workers in cleaning/hauling vegetation from the water.

We needed a good way to join 104 square black acacia rods to some perpendicular slats for a wine rack. There are several ways of doing this, with varying degrees of ease, strength and accuracy. We used our pantorouter to create integrated 3/4" round tenons. The mortises will be made using a 3/4" forstner bit. A good fit and some glue will ensure that these joints stay tight.
To learn more about pantorouters and how they work, check out the legandary Matthias Wandel's website: http://woodgears.ca/pantorouter/how_it_works.html
We cruised north with our dear friend Pim in search of old friends, beach treasure, cool buildings, and intellectual stimulation. Here are some goodies from our adventure.
