Re: Hello to Everyone from Phoenix

I'm a fan of buying tools once and this bandsaw has everything I need for a home shop. I picked up a bunch of quarter sawn white oak for the frames yesterday. I used tracing paper and paste for laying them out, it seems to work really well. I was so excited to start I used the wrong piece of lumber ...

Re: Hello to Everyone from Phoenix

Picked up a new Bandsaw yesterday. I’m very excited about it. F327E182-340F-4597-A48E-C3A9BB2B9FCF.jpeg I’m gathering material and tools gearing up to get started in a couple weeks. Still need to track down a couple things but it’s starting to look good. I have a ton of ideas and a lot to learn but ...

Re: Hello to Everyone from Phoenix

Thanks for the great reply Andrew, I feel much better about the whole project. I'm sure we'll be talking since we're local. Yeah the summer months aren't going to be fun, but we'll cross that bridge when we get to it.

I got sidetracked when I found my diamond sharpening stone and guide. Well an hour or two la...

Thanks Matt, the High Freeboard and the ability to fit this boat into my garage were the deciding factors.

Re: Matt's Geronimo

I enjoyed reading your thread so much I bought Geronimo plans today. This is something I've been wanting to do for a very long time and it's time to move in the right direction. I don't have a start date just yet but when I do there'll be a MIKE'S GERONIMO thread. I'm In the crazy brainstorming phas...

Re: Hello to Everyone from Phoenix

Well I did it, I ordered the Geronimo plans, along with the plywood boat building, fiberglassing, and builders notebook books. Not ready to start just yet, but I have a lot of reading to do in the mean time. I'm very exited.

Re: Hello to Everyone from Phoenix

Thanks for the replies, I feel better about the whole project now. During the lowest humidity months of the year the boat will be spending time in the water once it's completed so that will help. I might set a baseline humidity for the garage and aim to keep it close year round. This project is some...

Re: Hello to Everyone from Phoenix

Thanks for the reply, I get worried about materials drying out in the garage while I'm working on the boat. Over the summer the boat will sit in the garage waiting for it to cool off enough to work. I could add a humidifier to the garage if need be. After the boat has been encapsulated and finish ap...
