Making my first cedar strip canoe.  Time lapse
Wanted to make a cedar strip canoe so gave it a whirl. 13' solo canoe. Turned out ok but I did make a few mistakes. I think it will suffice for my first canoe. And for those who don't like the music, push the mute button. Thanks for watching.

Homemade Alaskan Mill
I've always wanted an Alaskan Mill and I finally came around to making one. Don't know why I haven't made one sooner as I have been wanting this for many years. I'm very happy with it and can't wait to mill some wood!

Homemade T-Square Fence for Rebuilt Table Saw
I wanted to make a new table saw fence for the rebuilt table saw and the other one made from wood was warping due to humidity changes in my shop. It turned out really good I think. Just a few upgrades to it and it will be done. Thanks for watching.

Solo canoe trip. Sayward Forest Canoe Route.
Always wanted to do a solo canoe trip, so I chose to do the Sayward Forest Canoe Route on Vancouver Island B.C. It is usually a 3-4 day run if you take your time but due to limited time I did it in 2 days. It was an awesome run and can't wait to do it again. I wish I had taken more pictures and video but I did kind of rush it. Next time I will document it a little better.

Milling some wood for sawhorses
Well the alaskan mill works real good with the new bar and chain. But I didn't like to kneel on the ground to mill the wood so I went to the bush milled some wood turned it to lumber and built some sawhorses. Very rewarding. I love this thing now!

My attempt to turn a wooden pen from bubinga wood.
Picked up a chunk of Bubinga wood. Though I would try my luck again at turning a pen after I had bought a pen mandrel. I am no pro at this but they do tend to turn real nice. Video is a little drawn out but it is step by step for those who have never seen it or have limited tools to make one. If any one has any tips for me please feel free to lend me some tips and bend my ear. Thanks for watching. I know I do need to work on my presentations. I'm not exciting but I would like to make some more of these videos. Thanks for watching.

Grizzly Bear swimming across the channel
Our boss thought it was just another log heading up Knights Inlet, but then it suddenly turned and looked at us. We got up close and saw that it was a Grizzly Bear swimming across the channel! Pretty cool, you don't see that every day.
