Our kitchen is the latest thing out of my shop. Matched grain cherry from sequential panels. The range hood was about 250 hours of work and has a book matched walnut overlay.

Arguing on the internet is like having a competition to see who can hit a brick wall the hardest. You may win, but you're still an idiot.

Guy, I am now paying homage. That scratch built Bearhawk is cool!
Some seriously neat projects in this thread

Default 1917 Fokker Dr-1 Triplane

I finished the RV-7 in 2009 and started building a 1917 Fokker DR-1 Triplane from Ron Sands plans in 2012. Instead of aluminum, riveting and fiberglass, I'm working with wood, steel tubing and fabric. The metal cutting blade on the bandsaw is swapped out for a wood cutting blade. Three years into the project -- if the weather is good, I have to fly the RV-7 -- all the ribs are done, I've learned to gas weld (sort of) and I'm nearing completion of the wing spars. I'm hoping to finish up the three box spars in a month or so, then I'll switch to the metal work: welding the fuse together and fashioning brackets.

This picture shows myself (right) and my expert crew making "the big cut" on the spar ladders, trimming 1/8" off each side with the table saw. Similar sort of event to cutting the RV canopy. Two spar ladders = one box spar, three box spars = one triplane. You can see the 60+ ribs hanging behind my head. 13 foot long table specifically for building the spars to the left.

This one is a fun project; no urgency to get it done like I had with the RV.



Someday maybe I'll be flying something like this (but I'll never part with my RV!):

I can't get over how beautiful that kitchen is. My wife spends as much time on Houzz as I do on VAF getting ideas for our retirement home. Must keep her away from this post....

Amazing craftsmanship, Guy!

This is too good to let it go. Could this thread be moved?
