Good to see you are well Gary. You are staying busy with things you like.

Ive also taken a somewhat more civilized track recently caring for an aging parent. I still get to spend some time at my cabin, but am now seriously considering totally avoiding winter and snow in the future, even if it means doing it in a camper in Az for the cold period.

Town life has been interesting, and nice having things close by instead of a 35 miles one way drive for anything.

Cabin life...I think...can always be a state of mind even when we can no longer enjoy cabin life like we may have in the past. Life does throw curve balls, circumstances / priorities change, you or your partner's health may change, aging parents, kid's health issues...enjoy the ride for what works for you and those you care about...it's always been about the journey...it's all good.
Cheers.

Well now......look who's late to the party...


Love the replies
Even from CabinBuilder hisself!

Small cabin folks are like that

Missing a folk or two
Hattie is one
Showing her last post on SCF many moons ago
Anyone know if she's OK?

We did[i][/i] have a tragic thing happen in our family realm

Our eldest son passed away early last April
He was 49
Healthy

Four days after getting his COVID vaccine

Losing a child is not in the natural process of things

My lady was hit hard

Time has put her back together


So good to hear from y'all

Keep a fire

I'm so sorry to hear your news Gary. Nobody should have to outlive their children. You are in our thoughts.

My condolences to your family Gary. That’s awful news

On a brighter note I love the picture especially with the muzzle loader

Glad you checked in

Thank you so much, fellow cabiners.

Stuff can sure happen to re-align priorities

None of us are unscathed

Y'all enjoy each day

I put some words to a pic I took at the cabin;

I pretty much live by them

There are times I miss cabin living.

When there, I put together some words.

They don't help in my homesickness, as they still ring true for me.

I do have my memories, however;

Someone here, in another life, posed the question; ‘What is your definition of a cabin?’



My reply;

For me?



t's more than even Kinkaid could replicate.
It's warmer than the warmest of wood stoves.
It has more charisma than the grandest of orators,
more appeal than the most opulent edifice built.

Yet it's simpler than the simplest of abodes.
...all the while doing its modest magic

Turning a mason jar to a drinking glass,
a tuna can to an ash tray,
a wooden apple box to a cabinet,
a burlap bag to a slip cover,
favorite old clothes to attire of choice,
a stranger to an acquaintance,
an acquaintance to a friend,
a wife to a mistress,

a life....to living.


And for me,

it's now home.

Great looking stuff Gary.
Do you have to plane or use a router sled to get the pieces the same thickness? Or do you get the pieces the same thickness?
I have a couple piles of live edge stuff that I am waiting for the wood to dry, warp, and or crack enough to let me know what I can build with it. Sometimes the wood is the boss, LOL.

Yeah, they have minds of their own.

There's a guy up the path with a saw mill.
He turns ponderosa pine logs into beams for lodges and cabins.
Gives me the outer slabs.
Dims are however they come out. Mostly one to one and a half inch thick and six to 12 inches wide. I cut them down to 12 feet so I can haul them.

One lady outfitted most her house with my stuff.



The trick is joinery......getting the corners to match.

If you've got the saw, it'll be worth it.
Fun......challenging projects
