There are a lot of talented people on here. And once in a while someone shares photos of their latest project: knife, trapping tool, modified trap, fur project, fur shed, leatherwork, woodwork etc. I really enjoy seeing all your handiwork. So, please share your latest project.

I am nowhere near as talented as some of the users on here but I finished out a quiver with a badger pelt and it turned out well.

Bandy, that is a nice lookin mount!

Grabbed some small deer antlers and pulled together a coat rack.
Kids liked it.

My latest handy work is force fetching my newest pup. She is about ready to get off the table and back on the ground now. I start with the normal things guys make dogs fetch and then I move to some more uncomfortable stuff...like the bristle side of a brush. I want her to fetch anything I tell her too even if its uncomfortable for her right now. Her reward for almost being done with the table was a real bird last night!!

Yanmar does not make triple rear remotes for their compact tractors so DIY is what I am working on at the moment. Amongst other things .... nothing fancy and elaborate like you folks are doing. Just drilling and hot glueing metal bits together.

Here are two whole hide tobacco pouches. These were commonly carried by Natives and Euro descent men on the fur trade. They would carry their pipes, tobacco and Firestarter equipment in them. They wore them draped over a belt or sash. Coomon skins included small otter, Mink, marten and skunk.

They are not that tough to make at all.
To do it right, they should be skinned through a slit from the neck to the chest, where the red ribbon is. This leaves the bag portion, without having to stitch it shut. Oftentimes the skull was left attached at the nose to give shape to the head.

Most of my summer besides trapping Pepe’s, working cattle, getting called into work for transports has been filling the carp freezers the wife caught well over 300 this summer.

Rebuilt the East end of the house cheap windows sweating ruined the siding and the studs around them put in new studs and 4 new windows tossed up barrier paper while I had it apart.

That landing was clear of wood last spring now it has about 10-11 cords of boiler wood on it for next year still need to pick up 3 more trailer loads when the guy has his beans out of the field next to the pile.

Had a slab doing nothing behind my garage, built a pergola from old power poles and a crude chainsaw mill, built the canopy from a installing grommets on a painters drop cloth, and built a block wall concrete planter covered with stone veneer and poured a 2” thick cap for the top, nice hang out area!

I enjoy building horsepower. Here's the line for this winter to get done before next racing season starts.
The one on the floor I just finished for a customer, a 434ci Chevy for in a super latemodel at over 800hp.

There's a couple aluminum Mopars that are mine, a 438ci and a 410ci. The cast iron block is a 350 Chevy I'm building for the limited latemodel class, which I'll sell. It should dyno at 625-650hp.

I also like to build oil pans.

Sometimes it's not the complicated or artistic projects but what your handiwork means to someone.

One of our members of the firehouses' elderly mother visits regularly and contributes her time to help out quite a bit and is respected for her efforts.

There is a small set of 3 concrete steps from the engine bay to the meeting room. She slipped and fell one day coming into the firehouse. Not good for someone of advanced age.

I found an old handrail that someone was giving away. I sanded it down and refinished it. Cut it down to fit the small set of steps. Secured it to the wall directly to the studs with very long screws so it is in the wall SOLID. It does not budge at all. You easily put all your weight into it and then some. Perfect for a safe thing to throw all your weight into instead of landing on the concrete steps. This was installed ironically on Mother's day. I told Carol that I did this for her because I didn't want to see her fall again. She was SO happy and thanked me multiple times.
[Linked Image]
I think she thought that was the best Mothers day gift she got that year even though that was not my intention.

Sadly , Carol passed away last year from a battle with cancer. The people in the firehouse call that handrail as 'Carol's handrail'
Kinda a legacy in her memory and our other members who are advancing in age appreciate having it there too.

Thanks for starting the thread, Dan. The art and craftsmanship displayed is astounding. Sharon, wow me once again with a wolf or a wolverine. Where's Snowy with his wood carvings? Newhouse with his ivory carvings? Trey with his photos? The list could go on for pages and pages!

Ok, realized I haven't shared either so I better practice what I preach. LOL.

Trying to learn learn home tanning and I finished these yesterday. I caught the badger in a cat set last winter. The marten was a bucket list item. Had never caught a marten until last winter (not a lot of them in Utah) and finally took the time to make it happen. I caught a male and a female a couple hundred yards apart, two days apart. I had the male mounted ("Marty"). This is the female ("Martina").

This was actually done for the 2020 Alaska trappers spring fling,,,,,,,,,which was canceled. So I added the 21 to make it happen at the fling in 2021,,,,,,,,,,which was canceled. It is now in Alaska and AKHOWLER will figure out how to squeeze the most out of it to benefit the association. I need to home up with something I haven’t already done for 2022!

I like doing a lot of things but beside hunting and trapping I sure get a lot of enjoyment out of welding. Got two other projects in the works and a few brewing in my head. Sure got a few comments when I made this guy and put him by my driveway ! [Linked Image]

Pawnee, I highly value your contribution. Farmers feed the world. I spent two years in Japan 45 years ago. They had a tradition of eating every single grain of rice from their bowl. It was explained, they do this out of respect and to honor the farmers that labor so hard to provide our food. To this day I will not leave a grain of rice on my plate. Thankyou!

Pawnee, I highly value your contribution. Farmers feed the world. I spent two years in Japan 45 years ago. They had a tradition of eating every single grain of rice from their bowl. It was explained, they do this out of respect and to honor the farmers that labor so hard to provide our food. To this day I will not leave a grain of rice on my plate. Thankyou!

Good mantra to live by.
Now part of my things to hold dear.
Dan Barnhurst , that goes for you too. Farmers are undervalued for what they do everyday.

Thank You for posting that , Pawnee

Made some chairs and small tables for our firepit area. Painted them with a good quality enamel house paint.
Found some large resin plant pots and those got painted to match.

Money cannot buy you happiness, but it can buy you a trapping license and that's pretty close.

Simple fish bat. Oak with couple Oz lead in the end to make it weight forward. Still needs couple coats of polyurethane or oil. Not sure which yet. Forgot how hard was to make something like this with just hatch and file. 🤣 Actually been several years since ran my lathe. Made this after watching my buddy trying whack 20lb Salmon with his pliers.

Gulo, WOW that baculum table is beautiful and somewhat horrifying! When I think about all the boys it represents it kinda makes me reach up front with both hands to protect my own!

I love the two pelters I bought from you and am thoroughly enjoying your book right now. Kinda feel like a kindred soul. Farm, hunting, fishing , trapping. Two wildlife degrees. Cougar study masters thesis with Wildlife Coop Unit at USU. Thirty years with Utah Division of Wildlife. Had a lot of similar experiences, just not quite as hardcore as you LOL. Thanks for sharing.

Look at all this talent.

Nice reflections of life, Jack ! I remember that table ...and the cozy she shed. Love the wuff skull rendering ...and your book, which I am halfway through. Hard to put down. The most beautiful home I have ever seen...bar none.

Amazing the talent here in fine finished furniture and everything else !

Wow lots of talent on here, it would be hard to figure out who's work impressed me the most. My short list would have to include Newhouse114s calls, the wood in MaCfees furniture, and of course Sharon's paintings.
