This sturdy butcher block table is built from salvaged red oak. The mahogany legs are joined to the top with through tenons, adding a contrasting element to the table top.
This Spring we built a new rudder for the sail boat Taliesin, a 41′ Concordia sloop built by Abeking & Rasmussen in 1957. I want to give a big thanks to the crew at Concordia Company in South Dartmouth for their expert guidance and assistance with this project.
The 50 year old beams of this S. Dartmouth pier were compromised by rot at the ends. We repaired beam ends by bolting on new planks that extend beyond the rotted areas and into the good wood. Then we built a structure to support this portion of the dock. Turned into a pretty fun job with the added challenge of working in an icy inter-tidal zone. Most days were a hurried race against the flooding tide with plenty of wet feet!
Other dock repairers might find ‘Wood Pile to Beam Connections‘ by FEMA a good resource.
We are proud to announce the Ding Shack now offers remodeling for your vintage RV’s and camping trailers! We are fully equipped and semi-qualified to trick out your camper.
This trailer belongs to a friend who is planning a cross country trip this winter. He’s done a quick and slick refit with new cushions, curtains, paint and wood laminate floor.
Today I added a locker in the galley to cover a space that used to house a propane heater. The first snow of the winter was falling all day and I think the camper was tugging a little at her mooring. She’s almost ready to head out West!
