After a couple years of working on this off and on I can finally say that I am finally finished with my boat and oars. Took a lot of trial and error on a few things since I have never been able to claim to being a wood worker. lol. The boat has been finished for about a month now so I have been working on the oars since then. I was finally able to wrap and put the rubber donut on the oars last night which was no small feat trying to get that donut over the 2 1/4 in square tops. It can be done but you need 3 guys to do it. I wanted to say thanks to this forum because it would have been damn tough to do all this without all you and this forum. Thanks
Here's some directions on how to post your pictures:
To post a picture I first locate the file so you could find it on your computer. Click on the small icon above the box where I am currently typing. It is just to the right of the small icon that says "LINK". That will open a box that reads: "ADD IMAGE". You can choose from FROM MY COMPUTER or FROM A URL. If you choose computer, then a double click will start the process of copying the picture so it can be posted on the website server.
When your picture will be posted it will be full sized and there will be no clear margin around it unless you select "padding." Selecting 1 means you will have 1 pixel, or very small space around the outside of your picture. Unless you are trying to place several pictures tightly together you can ignore padding.
You can chose to post the picture to the left right or centered on the page. You can also make a picture larger or smaller based on the width in pixels that you select.
Click okay and the picture will be copied to the post you are working on. Hope that helps. Let me know if you have any questions.
