Sorry haven't posted in a while but haven't been sitting on my a$$. Here's how you convert your trailer to a flat bed. Here's the before pics'


Here's the progress.

Notches for the supports that are bolted on the trailer.

Now the rest.


I forgot to take one with the hold downs bolted on but I think you get the idea. The decked shot is before the hold downs I just left it for last since I didn't have the other pic.

Here's what it looks like when you pic up your Mahogany and it's on the trailer.


Yeah I know most of the weight is on the front axle but I was only driving two hours so I wasn't that worried about it.

This is what it looks like unwrapped.


Problem is it wasn't all there! They forgot to give me the 5/4 covering board blanks because they were not by the milled stack. I didn't think to ask , just figured it was all under the wrap. No biggie, one call and it's being delivered on Monday! These guys were great would use them again in a heart beat.

Beautimous. Are they all resawn? When I picked up my mahogany the planks were 2" thick and then I had to have them all resawn. Getting closer to the glue and screw.

Well funny story. I decided to not go with the 6/4 since it would be a pain in the a$$ to resaw a 7'-10' wide 16' board on my 14" bandsaw so I went with 4/4, however they didn't have enough 4/4. I had to buy 5/4 but he milled it down to 3/4 at no charge! He said he would take it down to 5/8" but I was afraid if any of it had tear out it would end up less than 1/2" so we decided 3/4" and I could walk it down form there on my planer. Love that place great to work with

I got addicted to the smell of fresh cut Mahogany in '79 building my first boat in high school. I swear I could smell it reading this thread. Enjoy working your master craftsmanship into your final work of art. Thanks for the pictures along the way!

Well back at it again, too many life things keep getting in the way. Well anyway, after 2 1/2 days of moving boards around and picking grain, I'm finally ready to start finish planning them to 1/2". Yeah I'm a little more anal than most I guess. I just hope it all blends like I want. I have another project in the works also. I'll post pics when I get all the parts and start.

Ok did some more to the boat mover but also got at the Resorter again finally. The Chine planks are finally fitted and drilled but I only have cold weather CPES formula so I had to order the warm weather formula before I can CPES them and 5200 them into place. Ill eb out of town most of the week so that will be next weekend.

Congats on landing the job. Making a move over the holidays? Gotta be lots of stress but looks like you have it under control.
Sounds like it will be awhile until you get settled in and back on the boat project. Are there any fresh water lakes around the area?

Sweet. Some day I hope to make that show... at least 2-5 years away from that bucket list item... some family stuff first. Be sure to post a picture or 2 if you go. Maybe when you finish your boat and put it in the show is when I should go?!
