|Solano Playlot Bulletin Board 3D rendering 2014 |
|Redwood for this community project provided by |
the Lumber Baron in Albany.
|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|
