I'll come down the Wabash to the Ohio. Then down the Mississippi and ICW and be there in a jiffy.
I already had bought a contractor pack of fluorescent tubes and had a bunch left over from when I upgraded the lights in the last shop. I put in four 2 bulb fixtures in my garage. It's pretty much daylight in there now and a huge upgrade over the two bare light bulbs that were there before. The chal...

I used white oak for everything so far. It's probably not something you would want to veneer your hull with but it's great for frames and longitudinals if only a bit heavy. Just make sure to rough up your glue joints first.
I haven't started working on the boat again yet but it is happening very soon. I just upgraded the lighting in the garage big time and built a bunch of shelves to get things organized.

Since we are showing off workbenches: Mine is a Paul Sellers design made of walls studs finished with Watco danish oil. I have a Wilton quick release vise from ebay. I love the bench and vise. It can do it all.

That wood is beautiful IMO. I have several boards of sapele and I don't think any of it has that type of grain pattern. That doesn't mean anything though. It could just be the angle at which that board came off the log that caused it. What you have there looks like the medullary rays in oak actually...

Glen-L website does specify that you should stretch the Barrellback to 20' in order to have enough room for a small block v8. I get wanting to have the v8 sound but if you built one with a v6 I'm sure that you would be more than happy with performance. I'm also a big believer that you will be happie...
