I decided to take the 1964 Taft Marine Runabout we just restored to the local Wooden Boat show and got her cleaned up and looking good. Just had to take a few pictures of her details. It just brings me back to why I take on crazy projects like this when I should have let her go to the wood pile.

Here are a couple of photos from our recent build of a Woodie Tailgater that is on the final leg toward traveling across country.
You saw the copper tub being built a couple of months ago. The wine rack and cathedral grain panels are installed and most of the wiring is in. Glass racks are on the way and the roof and doors are next.

Right now we are trying to engineer the best way to use and install this beast of a Viking grill without putting it on a slide out. The grill weighs in at 325 lbs and counter balances the front slide really well at this point. 
This has to be the best built grill I have ever had the pleasure of getting close to. Everything about it is quality engineering and manufacturing. The only draw back is it was never intended or engineered for travel. Once we figure it out it will be quite the surprise when the back hatch is opened.
Liquor racks are getting padded leather and I'm developing gun racks for over the fenders.....also padded leather.
I'll post some more pictures as we finish.

Today Tom did some scrub planing on shelves and a bartop for the Airstream trailer we are working on. This technique is to level out the surface to make it all flat, even when boards are glued together.

Copper Sink for Woody Tailgater

Vasse Vaught Metalcrafting's owner Vasse came down and made a copper sink for a new Woody Tailgater. Yesterday morning it was simply a copper sheet, you can see as he shapes, solders and polishes it into a thing of beauty. Each working he does is unique and crafted specifically to the individual needs. Visit his website at: 
The sink starts off as a sheet of copper

Vasse shapes the sink

Then comes the soldering

After the drain is added it just needs to be polished
Here's the polished sink ready to go in the Woody!
