Sa Wheat...

If you go way back to the beginning of my blog you will read me mention Sam. He was kind enough to help me with some parts for Anna. We have never met face to face, but what I do know about him I do not just like, I envy. He has sent me pictures of his strip canoes and many of him hiking in some extreme mountain setting. But what always takes me by short and curlies is photos of his 1948 Boles. He sends me photos of this trailer in places only God, mountain goats, and winter blizzards belong.
He posted this photo on Airforums and my commentary got me a stack of photos of the nine week complete restoration he just did on that sexy little Boles. I asked him if it would be alright to share them with you, and in a usual Sam response he saw "no problem in that. " Folks enjoy, this is a super sweet little trailer.
I cannot find the first set he sent that show the exterior and new flooring, but there she sits in his barn.
Take note, that is all new wood you are looking at there. Very tight crisp construction.
New plumbing and cushions on top of all new wood fixtures.
Refer cabinet and wardrobe...
That is all spalted birch. I am telling you that is very tight! Not just run of the mill birch, he used spalted. Sam is a man that loves wood.
Sam is a man that knows how to work with wood. I have very inappropriate expletives I want to insert, but I am trying to keep it clean.

I would love to sit there and eat a plate of bacon and eggs... cream in the coffee...

Wow. Wow wow wow wow wow.

First off, that top picture is simply fantastic. That's what trailer camping is all about.

Lovely work too - I envy those of you with the skills and patience to do that type of work.

Rather than bacon and eggs, I picture eating warm cherry pie with ice cream at that dinette...

I agree with your superlatives on the new interior of this Boles. Absolutely gorgeous work! Wish we could have that inside our Scotty, but Marc wouldn't approve.
