Part 3: Carving a Bear on a Tamarack Post.

02-16-2007 12:18 AM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 9 comments »

In the fall of 2005, I built a small deck area between our cabin, & a little multi- purpose toolshed, & Barb’s Library. I had cut down a tall Tamarack tree that was blocking our satellite signal. Being that I hate wasting wood, I built a railing on the deck. Then I decided to carve something, so I chose this Bear. The Tamarack was green so it carved pretty nice. The heart wood was dark, it gave the Bear a nice background. Barb was taking snaps of me carving, so I made this shor...

Hi, I’m trying something new today. I’m trying to run a slideshow.It shows the construction of one of my decks at our cabin. I don’t care to cut trees down, so in order to fit a deck on this location , I discovered that using hexagonal sections fit the best.

Part 6: Logging operation, not by choice!!

Barb was feeling better last Thursday, so we took a jaunt up to our cabin for the day. We new in advance what to expect when we got there. Our good Neighbor called us a about it. A big old Black Spruce tree, between 90, & 100 years old, had blown down right in front of our cabin. He was kind enough to cut some of the lower branches that were on our dock. We were fortunate, because it missed or dock by an eye lash. It destroyed a glider, but I didn’t feel too bad, because...

Part 7: A cute Bear Cub near our cabin.

10-02-2007 03:22 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 16 comments »

I’m sorry, I haven’t been very active lately, I’ve been familiarizing myself with my new computer. It takes time to transfer the oodles of my picture files, plus learning a new system. We were up at our cabin a few days last week, closing it down for the season, & on the way home this Cub ran across in front of us. The road is real close to the lake, & by the looks of his fur, he had just taken a bath. I stopped, & took these pictures from inside the car. I...

These are from another view point. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~You may notice a lot of dead Birch trees. I guess a bug called “Saw Fly” is responsible.I leave them for the Flickers.
