Default New project

This project went faster then the 1841 and #1 carriage. A 3" coehorn mortar, Hern tube and rustic hickory base. I"ll do white oak again but think twice about hickory. It works hard, when you sand end grain it just gets hot and doesn't move. Chiseling the inletting for the barrel took the most time, about 9 hours, some of which included sharpening chisels again and again. The dog is happy the perfect projectile is a can from some up scale dog food.

I don't know why the pics tipped but they straighten out when you click on them. I need to get my camera back the old tracfone ain't much.

Love it! The hickory looks great!

I don't often bare my soul, it's ugly and tends to frighten people.

Thanks. And thanks Fred for tuning up the pics.
