Ok, I gave up on trying to use picasa to host my picture. Picasa seems to use a dynamic URL, which is why I could see it when I previewed but no one else could.
I've moved the image to Photobucket as you suggest in the FAQs

Thanks for the advice. I think I'll epoxy the joint (long grain) and add a layer of glass underneath for additional strength.

Canoe Storage

My question is this: Will I run the risk of deforming the shape of the canoe if I hang it using slings (either right side up or upside down), o...

Spline in Deck?

Hi everyone,
I plan on having a strip of walnut down the centre of my decks. My question is this: Will my decks be strong enough if I only use thickened epoxy to glue my deck pieces together? Or will I need to use a spline or biscuits?

I guess I'll have to build those later :twisted evil . However, I am now also considering the Prospector. ...

Help choosing design for Lake Erie

Hi everyone, I can't wait to get started on my canoe. I just hope building the canoe is easier than choosing which canoe to build! :) Looking for: -I'll be using it in mostly shallow waters on Lake Erie or in a sheltered bay. The lake winds can pickup fairly quickly on the lake and turn from glass l...
