It,s been a while and time to update.
I had a returning customer come into the shop with his wore out bridge.
This old bridge was used at one end of there pool and the old bridge was made of cypress.
It was loose and rickety. After talking a bit we decided that Aromatic cedar was to be used.
I didn't have 2x12 stock for the main arch frame, so the customer went to the local home center and acquired three 2x12x8's for the main arch frame.
Now the reason the 2x12's were used, he wanted to push it up higher, as he has a Lil troll he attaches to it underneath, because of the grand-kids excitement.
Now coated deck screws were used in securing the cedar boards to the frame as well as the railing.
Stainless steel bolts and washers were used on the support post. A fun project to do.
