Main benchwork complete …
Today I finished the last section of main benchwork as described in my last post.
The I-beams were fabricated from lengths of 5×1 and 3×1 DAR pine. A groove was routed into the top and bottom flanges to fit the web then the whole thing was glued together with the urethane glue. The beams were made in 5.4m lengths and then cut to suit each location.
Wall supports for joists are L-girders made from 3×1 and 2×1 DAR. The benchwork is now ready for joists. I also need to get some more masonite sheets to cut up for spline strips, then I can continue on with the spline from the helix to the DOWN storage yard.
