Fantastic looking. Next time I visit my son and DIL in Edmond, I'm coming to visit!

It looks like a Minnesota Bremmer Pond project -- and that is meant as a total compliment.!

Dang, that looks good! I'll bet there are a few hours in that project. Can you bend the tubes yourself?

Yes esshup, we can bend the tubes personally. We have a tube/pipe bender in the shop and it works great for stuff like this.

There are a few hours and many thoughts in this project!

It's really nice when you have all the right equipment. You can build some nice things!

Well we do have a bit of an advantage. My father is extremely talented in the metal/wood working areas and that is a great thing to have at our disposal. Also, we have an another advantage. My father farms and does his own dirt work so we have the equipment to use for moving dirt and we have plenty of space to work on large projects such as this one. So I have it very good.

With the recent rains, the pond has filled enough to have the last of the dock set in water. The dock was relatively easy to set if you have the right equipment. We used a tractor to carry it down to the pond and place it in the water. Then used a very long rope and walked around to the north bank and pulled it into place. Finally, our helpers slipped the pin into place.


First picture of the dock.


Second dock picture with mother and father standing on it.

Thank JHAP. Can't wait to full enjoy it, waiting over a year on water was hard enough.
