MadDogMike, that is such a cool idea for a pirate ship. Those boys will be telling stories and showing pictures of the ship and accoutrements forever. I hope it is still standing when they have children of their own. Wendy

Mike!

You really put the Mad (=crazy) into MadDog! You've got to be enshrined into the Grandfather Hall of Fame one day.

Wow. First a pirate ship, then possibly an actual firing "softball cannon", now a crowd of crocs? Next thing you know, they'll need one of these to release their inner Cap'n Jack Sparrow, sailing over those gaping maws and snapping jaws to dry land.




Original Fun Ride™ Zip Line Trolley

I saw one of these on ebay for $49 + free shipping.

Of course, your daughter will probably HATE that idea, something about blah, blah, safety, blah, blah, risk of injury, blah, blah, hospital, blah, blah... or some such other nonsense. Moms always seem to hate the most fun things, don't they?

Jon - I bought a new echocardiograph at work and brought home the wooden crate, about 3x3x4 feet but haven't come up with a good use for it yet.
Wendy - if my grandkids have half as much fun playing in the ship as I have had building it, I will have won twice! Hopefully it will still be standing in 25 years, I don't see why not.
Swizz & Cy - thank you.
Bruddah - You're just finding all kinds of stuff for me My daughter isn't too much of a safety freak, she knows that boys will be boys. But I have been trying to be careful to make things reasonable safe; no exposed bolts, no places to catch fingers, lots of paint to avoid splinters, no rope ladders (a big source of injuries), etc. I think a zip line would be reasonable safe when the boys are older

I finished Tick-Tock. I may try to add a little more brown and re-fire him so that he shows up better in the grass. About 3 feet long overall.

I know it's a play area for children, but it wouldn't be so bad if it was a rum crate! Stencil and or branded.
(If you want me to laser cut you a stencil, shoot me a PM and I'll mail one out to you.)

Wow, I wouldn't change the crock, as is he could sneak up on someone and give them a good thrill. He's terrific. Wendy

Thanks Jon, I think that is my cousin Vantu
Thank you all for your croc comments. I just wanted you to know I have not been resting on my laurels (or any other part of my anatomy for that mattter) I did make another croc in brown and it shows up better in the grass but I haven't done much art lately. My brother is getting married in my front yard next Saturday and I have been busy getting the place ready for him and 250 of our closest friends
Got construction and painting done on the Pirate Ship, now it's just adding details for the next 10 years (kinda like a Tiki Bar, it's never "finished"). The weekend after the wedding is a trip to Mexico and THEN I have some ceramic projects lined up
