Aram, I have learned a lot from your build.  As much as I have enjoyed the build I am saddened that is FINISHED.

Thank you for including us.

Thank you. It was very challenging for me. Happy to share the experience, glad someone out there found it worth looking at.

Very nice work. Yes

Didn't you used to live in the Bay area?

Funny thing is, I lived in Cottage Grove in the 70s, about 20 miles south of Eugene. I worked down in Roseburg at a tree farm.

Cheers,
Alan

Thank you. I did, but I escaped after my daughter left for college. We checked out Cottage Grove last time she visited me. Nice place, but talk about your sleepy villages!

In the 70s when I lived there, there was less than 1000 people in the entire town. It's changed a lot.

A friend of mine built a home out east of Portland and bought some beams from the school that was torn down in Cottage Grove...but there isn't too much happening there. It's a beautiful area, I like Oregon. I'm building a shop/home in Lake County, CA for my exit. My house is a large dovetail box. No curved top though, but it has a timber roof. Smirk

I love it.

I did not see what joints you did on the small box?
It is always the right time, to do the right thing.

You know I still go to hand tools and look for updates everyday to see what is happening here with the box.

Hmmm I know it is done but it just seems like there needs to be another one.


So Aram you up to making another one???

Not being pushy or anything but what are your plans for another one. Laugh Laugh
