[quote="Vickie"]Flyer canoes?

Cool thought!


Flyer totems?

Wouldn't split the log for this.

I think your building new flyer dens. Don't see the drills out yet. But then you could be building them a canoe which I really like that idea .

What is it? What is it? Don't keep us in suspense here :!:

Is it new shelves for the wild bunch to play on?

OK my guess is 4 flyer nest homes for the 2nd and new wild bunch cage.

How did I do?

You two look like your having way to much fun on the motorcycle.

Oh Judy, you always know! They'll even come with work out instructions to build up biceps so you swat with 50 pounds of half a log.

A Man(and woman) Made Hollow Log! Y'all are going to scoop out chambers and then glue the 2 halves back together for the little monsters.
Because the huge hollow middle support post in the wild bunch enclosure is getting too crowded. So you are going to add some suburban neighborhoods. Then some of the furballs can move out of their urban high-rise and live in the sweet new 'burbs :cool:

Running half the log threw the saw.

It left slivers like a filter that had to be removed with a chisel and hammer.

Chiselled out half.

Gee, wish I owned a table saw, to do that with a log! I only have a circular saw, and a jig saw. And people think I am strange for being a woman who owns power tools, and knows how to use 'em! I wanna be like Joan! :D I am jealous. And I want more flyers!

And I am really jealous of Powder! What an amazing little flyer girl she is! She knows who she owes her life to!

Oh no, Powder has it finished! She is better and faster at building anyway. She don't need all those power tools, just her teeth.

Tom cutting the end caps in half (he wouldn't let me use the table saw because there wasn't a guard) :roll:

Staining the end caps

Air gunning the end caps in place

What the heck! Joan ... this is a family forum. :oops:

There ... that feels better! :wink:

How the heck do you think I'm supposed to get inside this thing? :?

Drilling a hole in the end cap

Step aside and let me show you how it's really done :wink:

OK ... you're 2 cm off ... this won't pass inspection

How did you bend the hanging rods?
