I have a slightly OT question in regards to my old house porch restoration project...?
Been curious about the pvc trim that is widely available nowadays? Does anyone know if it takes & holds paint well?
Here's one i made fairly inexpensively as i already had some old 3/4" scraps of plywood from an earlier version.
Build in 4 easy to transport sections that assemble into a platform 5'3"d x 6'w x 8"t.
Lag bolts with the heads cut off that fit into sections of pipe make it rigid enough to be put...
A friend of mine owns this antique bass drum. I don't know the wood type or the lay up but it is appox 27"
I suspect it's from the late Victorian era and is missing the original rope & tensioners. Those hoop claws are probably the best clue.
But i'd love to hear other and better informed...
I think I like them all.
But the stuff from the very beginning pioneer/horseless buggy era fascinates me the most.
I'm really intrigued by the idea of guys making something from nothing, by hand and with no guide to follow.
If the bike checks out I think someday you'll regret not doing it- Never pass up an opportunity for a adventure!!!
