Being a trained furniture and cabinet designer and maker I frequently turn my skills and workshop equipment to making items to assist me in my deer stalking.
It occoured to me that it would be quite a nice touch if this site had a dedicated section to encourage people to post examples or instructions of how they have gone about certain projects so that it can be used as a source of reference and inspiration to others.
I appreciate that people do frequently post threads on things they have made but I think it would be great if one could find all these projects in one place - just like in the cooking section.
The nature of deer stalking frequently brings about the need for specific items that cannot be bought and so many people, myself included, turn to making items, which frequently turn out to be a real success and help. For example : high seats, rifle slings, winch arrangements, shooting sticks, clothing, larder equipment, knives, firearm adjustments, deer extraction sledges, reloading benches and aids, vehicle modifications etc etc etc are all projects that would rest quite nicely in their own section.
The start of the section could have a basic set of standard dimensions for high seat design and construction as this is something that is constantly being needed and would save much searching of sometimes rather lengthy threads.
Perhaps other members would like to give their thoughts on this ?
Kind regards, Olaf
ps. This Chrismas I am making myself a hand warming tube from some mink furs that I salvaged from an old fur shawl ! I'm aiming for that Dr Zhivago look this season !
