Finished this up today.
So far, I’ve made plans to go north on four different weekends. Each time, I got snowed out. This week we got 8 inches of snow; I think most folks have had enough. Time for a little warm weather. Anyway, I spent the day in the garage turning some Red Oak slabs into a massive bench
I’ve worked up some plans to make a timber framed gazebo at the ranch. This structure will be used as an eating area. It was designed with the minimum number for joints and timbers.
The Sketchup file includes an add on TF Rubies which allows pulling shop drawings directly off the model.
Below is the timber list and all the shop drawings that are needed to cut this frame. Not all dimensions are included on the drawing. A few general rules are below:
What a day. Skies ready to start dropping snow, a little rain, a little sleet, and a shit-ton of gray. I hiked in a across the lake to check on things as I have not been out to the ranch since before deer season. The advantage of our place tucked back into the woods is it is damn-hard to get to and most folks just don’t have the energy to do so. This, means that our place nothing but deer, beaver, and porcupine tracks. Nice day for a walk.
Crossing the lake. The Ranch is up over that ridge.
Approaching the Stump Ranch.
I decided to leave the snow shoes in the trunk. Bad idea.
The Bunk House.
Table and burn barrels.
