    My Farm Projects

    I inherited 140 acres that my parent bought in 1965, so I decided to start this thread to show some of my farm projects!

    Today was a small project in the picnic ground. Years ago I'd put a bench next to the pond to fish from, but I put it too close to the edge of the water! Using 3-2-3/8" chain link fence post for the front & two 1-5/8" posts for the sides: Click image for larger version.

ID:	68410 The lumber is CCA treated lumber from my 16' trailer floor that I recently replaced. Drove the posts 30" into the clay bottom: Click image for larger version.

    Lowell, I enjoy seeing all your pictures, but I have to say my favorites are of Chief and Dottie.

    There's gotta be a way to drill a hole in those fence post caps and mount rod holders on them. That's just another project waiting to happen.

    Looks nice! Color me jealous!

    Not the caps, but I'll be putting the small sized tarp hooks on the posts along with an "eye" bolt to hook a fish basket!

    Besides the rod holders, I pulled out some old fence wire, wadded it up & hauled it to the ditch this morning. Swept out the "timber shack" & re-fastened the seat swivel after painting the shelves a couple weeks ago. Click image for larger version.
