Winter weather has been borderline for painting and varnishing. Good for sanding but that is depressing by itself. Do I hate sanding epoxy more because of my Scotch blood? You know using up a sheet to sand about the same size surface area.
I decided to make my tiller out of black walnut that I cut down because the tree was dying up top and leaning over the house. Main problem was not being able to find anyone that could/would mill it up - took a year of asking around. I finally found the man, Albert Thompson, over on James Island. Super nice guy with a portable mill. He cut the native live oak timbers for the The Spirit of South Carolina - and they were some huge trees.
up on trailer - solo with winch
cutting time - lot of waste since it sat on ground for so long
