Building a Trapper

Post by ralphobarly » Wed Aug 11, 2010 7:59 am

Hello Peoples,

I'm just about to start stitching together my trapper and I was curious. Has anyone actually ever completed a trapper design? I was searching everywhere and I can't find anyone that did. I'm just very curious to see what the finished product will look like.

Thanks

Matthew

G'day

Stitched my "Trapper" last weekend, it came together beautifully. I am located in Brisbane, Australia.There is another Aussie trapper build on the forum but there are no pictures.
Will try to post pictures after this weekend
I'll need to get the camera working first & figure out how to post photos, as I'm new at this!!! :oops:

Matt has a great write-up on posting pics in Tips and Tricks. I used Photot Bucket. Made the sizing of pictures and stuff real easy............. :idea:

Hey Mathew... How's your trapper coming along. I'm having a great time with mine, a couple of hours each night, enjoying the journeythen looking forward to sitting back like Hairymick in some nice out of the way spots.
The group on this forum are great, Matt's plans are pretty good, but the forum gives the confidence to get into the building.
Look forward to hearing more from you
Col
