Hi
« on: February 20, 2015, 08:41:50 AM »
I'm new here. I'm not sure if I'm in the right place. I like to build pedals, and be facetious.
My $.02 is worth exactly that...

Then you are most certainly in the right place here :-)

Welcome to the community
I build pedals to hide my lousy playing.

Here ya go! It's not a pedal. It's 15ish foot cardboard pirate ship I'm working on for my sons 4th birthday. Good thanks to my friend Lumpy for letting me use the first floor of his place.

My $.02 is worth exactly that...

I thought about doing a full build report in the folder for those things. But since I'm  new here maybe I'll just stick to updating here. My sons birthday party was today. He was a little sad there wasn't a wheel to steer with. At 12:15am the day of the party it's hard to choose a wheel or a mast/sail. Oh well, we'll have to add one this summer when we haul it out of the basement to play with it this summer. It's folded up somewhat neatly and stored safely in the basement.

Here's a picture of the little guy acting like an angry pirate.

We named the ship Hot Turkey, because really... ...why not? Here she is in all her glory.

Here's a look at the name plate my good friend Lumpy made.


I'm available to make all kinds of things all over the country for large sums of money. Let me know.
