    I've been playing around at the river near my house destroying beaver dams and relocating beavers to help in flood control. We first saw these guys in the Spring and now see them almost every day we go out. We have found what we believe to be their nest and the DNR is going to verify it in February during their survey. If it is a nest it will be the first one in this county since 1890. These pictures were taken in Gary, IN about three blocks South of I-94. I was within 30 yards of them. Not something you'd expect to see in an urban area. There are also a couple of juveniles in the area.

    There's a fine line between woodworking and insanity, I'm just not sure which side of the line I'm on!

    One of the many birds we do "NOT" have here in the Islands...I guess it's to far for them to fly. Very nice. I remember visiting Alaska and seeing them all over....the nests are so large as well.

        Great Pics - They are fun to watch. One cold winter day, we found a bunch playing on the Mississippi River. They were hitching a ride on the ice chunk and floating down river. They would then fly back and find another ride.

                Nice work. I truly admire all the projects that you share and I truly envy the fact that you finish what you start. What is your secret?

                Thanks, Kim. I'll show that to my husband but since he has 2 surgeries coming up I doubt that will be on his to do list. The place we buy wood from air dries the wood for a year, than finishes with kiln drying....

                will8989, We made a drying kiln out of a plan we saw on youtube. We took a 6-Tier Commercial Grade Heavy Duty Steel Wire Shelving Unit that we got at lowes, wrapped it in 1 inch foam insulation board and put two heat bulbs in the bottom, we have holes at the top and bottom to let the moisture out. We...
