Redwood for this community project provided by
the Lumber Baron in Albany.
Thanks Max.
Making 100+ Lath from nominal 1X goes faster
with precisely measured stop blocks clamped to the fence.
That way you only need to pull a tape measure once.
75 shouldered 1X lath's ready for pilot holes.

My Delta 10" chop saw was used to gang-cut the Lath to minimize tear-out
This is the Bulletin Boards rain gutter.
Bruce Sturgeon (CROWN Heating*Sheet Metal, INC.)
will fold-up the rain gutter.

Details of Angle Bracket for the roof
¼" Steel from Oakland
pre-cut to 49.5°.
These were fun holes to drill.

Angle Brackets all drilled and MIG welded together to form 99°.
Ready to be powder coated.

All of a sudden
Solano Playlot in Richmond Ca

The four main framing timbers being joined with metal brackets to form the roof over hang 

My neighbor Dennis asked if I was building a boat dry dock once I had the frame together for mock up

My muscle memory was dialed-in so well I was cutting shoulders off the end if these 1x ribs eyes closed.
Safety glasses still on of course

The final piece arrived exactly as dimensioned and fit perfectly
