There you are Rich! Thanks for joining in, and posting your comments and thoughts.

This afternoon I completed the left side trailer wall slats. Below as seen in the picture we have all the slats mounted, and glued down into place over the template. The following picture shows my left index finger, to show a visual of the slat sizes, and the fumble finger size. Then we have the picture that is just a better overall hand visual. The last picture shows you the completed slatted left side wall, laying temporally up against the trailer body where it will be mounted and glued into place.
Now for the other side to be built. See you in another 8 Months. [:-banghead]

Louis, nice work on cutting & piecing that all together!
I'm certain that the second one will be easier going.

Thanks for comments and posting Greg. I'm hoping that it goes easier after the first. [:-thumbu]

Yet another custom creation built by Lou. [:-thumbu]
You'll get the second thumb when the other side is done.

Looks terrific!

I'll be looking for that second thumb Jim. Beats the finger.

Wow, didn't realize how small that is. Nice work Louis. All those slats are straight. Sometimes impossible to keep straight in that small size.

I'll sit down now so Rich can see.

Wow, great work there Louis! Any bent/ broken slat can always be blamed on a cow kick! #128521;

Nice work Lou!
Have yours eyes refocused or are you still seeing slats and posts when you look away?

Hi Bernd. Yes me too, didn't realize just how delicate, and small it was, until starting the project myself. In the magazine it looks bigger and doable.
Thanks for your comments here! [:-cowboy][:-thumbu]
