    Re: wooden bathtub

    I made a nice soaking tub out of homedespot birch ply several years ago. I used a lot of epoxy. The best part is I have a bathtub I can lay down in (sixtoo). Still going strong with daily use.

    Hi, thanks for the compliment. I built the 15 footer and love it. The little one is designed as a tender. What are you looking to do with the boat?

    Re: Looking for workshop in north central Vermont

    In Vermont the most essential tool is a really great pair of boots. Put up a tarp and work when the temps are above 15. (A bit more if you like epoxy.)
