  • Got some marching order from my son today

    I think he got his mother's sense of humor

    he wants me to assemble this. not much carving maybe the letters, He is going to try and get the trap from Cabelas and a friend to cut him a bark-on slab. Probably get the bark glue with Elmer school glue, give the letters a dark walnut stain, the whole thing a natural stain then a coat of Watco Exterior Wood Finish. Told him to get the darn thing welded open

    Any suggestions before starting are welcomed

    In the meantime, the continuing study to improve my caving, if possible

    Yup!..... make sure to have the jaws welded open ( by someone who is qualified).. that looks like a # 4 beaver trap and I can guarantee you'll only put your finger in one of those once .... I never got a direct hit from one of them but got nipped a couple of times when I was trapping years ago.

      Joe, The only problem is that you won't be able to hear them. Then they will keep coming back. Good luck.
      If I took the time to fix all my mistakes, I wouldn,t have time to make new ones.

        Wonderful concept. I'll have to dig around in the camping stuff... What no teeth ? Had a friend with a Boot and leg bone (broken off and Boot and bone weathered) as a display in a roadside diner.

          Easiest way to do the letters is chip carve 'em. imho.
          Fun project.

              Those rednecks. So darned resourceful aren't they? That's a chuckle and a half right there.

                I have a great suggestion! You make the plaque and let your son mount the trap!

                  That must require an awful large slab of wood.

                        I think it will be Terry, already think how to get the trap mounted to the wood securely.

                            Would that keep the politicians away?
