My first build

Post by LEE SCHNEIDERMANN » Thu Aug 28, 2008 11:29 pm

I wanted to share a picture of my "first" build. It's perched atop the Freedom. :D :D

That is a 1/4 scale model of a free pirogue plan I found on the internet.
I wanted to test all these "theories" out I kept reading about to see if they really worked.

They do! :wink:

Jeezzzzz Lee....

I made one about that size for a lady down here that wanted a pirogue for a Cajun Cookout to fill with cooked Crawdads. I was wishing she wanted a full size boat and would invite me to the cookout but that never happen.
Guess I had my hungry face on when she said what she wanted it for. :lol:

Never thought of using it around the kitchen, but it would make an interesting bread basket or biscuit server!
