Building a Bridge and Eating a Pig

A crew of local and remote volunteers cutting parts.

Will cutting a critical joint to precise tolerances with the chainsaw, trimmed to closer tolerances with a few chisels and planes.

We had several locals come out and cook up a whole pig for everyone today, I think we have enough pork to feed an army for the rest of the week!  It was superbly done.

A stack of knee braces ready to fit into the frame.

Below you can see what I worked on all day, that single beam all the way on the right.  It was two beams this morning, we spent quite a bit of time laying out and then cutting the six foot long scarf joint in the middle to make a 37 foot beam in the end.
