Re: Woods Skoota 32DM

Where? i cant see it! :P

Looks good, its nice to be able to see it from afar all at once.

Curious... Been dreaming of building a shop lately, what size doors would be ideal for a project like yours? I know you have had some issues with your work space size.

Re: Winter is over

Sounds like a homesteader septic system bit you at a bad time. Little suprised it was buried that deep but mine is down a ways also. I bet you will need to install a new leach field next summer too.

Re: Winter is over

Thankfully the ground isn't froze yet...... Had our septic give up the ghost this week :( Dug down to access the tank, not knowing anything about such things I figured it was about 5-6ft down to a raised lid but the stand pipe I needed to access to pump it out.

I think I like the idea of textured paint (tinted truck bed liner is polyurethane and durrable)

CNC Model kits?

I think this has been asked before but I can't remember if anything came of it......

Do you or would you offer CNC cut models for sale? (say 12-24 inch longish)

Looking for some winter entertainment or Christmas gift ideas for Landon.
