Ran a fairly successful Paintball Field South of Austin for 20 years.
Hosted many tourneys and scenario games there.
This castle was part of my scenario field where we held quite a few scenarios including multiple Viper Texas Triple Threat 26 hour games.

1985 Chevy Suburbalanche; a pure hunting and fishing rig. 35" tires, 4" lift, cut 4 feet out of the top and move it forward. Should have patented it, and Chevy would have been paying ME!!!

I learned by doing it, you just gotta start and don't worry about making mistakes, they just happen!
And yeah, I've made my share of expen$ive mistakes!

Looks well done Sir!
But that "Chevy" you are talking about is actually a thinly disguised Honda.

Built this about two years ago in Oak Cliff for a client...one of my favorites. Cedar deck over concrete pie slice shaped cement patio with pergola above it and benches with drink holders.

I built this for the Prosper PD. It went on their new station. Probably the coolest (and hardest) thing I've ever built. I wish I had a picture of it at night because it is lit up with LED in the badge

There is a cool looking, night time picture on their website. Their picture with police officers below it shows just how big it is. Very nice.

I miss this thread, you guys make cool stuff.

A friend was trying to make a mallet like this but was unsuccessful at molding the plastic. I took it as a challenge and made my own.
I made the head from HDPE that I saved from plastic Folgers cans, a broken Lowes bucket and an old white paint bucket. The head is 3" x 3 1/2" x 6"
The handle is mesquite with a 1/2" mesquite pin. Total length 15"
