I need some of this type of work. I can't find anyone in my area, and can't
get anyone on the internet to answer my questions about a piddly little 40
feet of railings.
I have seen many sites in Log Cabin magazines where the woodworking tools
are available for around $500 where a guy can go out in the woods, gather
the wood, and do his own.
Am I missing something here? Am I wanting too small a job for anyone to
Should I just buy the cutters and do it?
Any of you guys tooled up for this and looking for a side ca$h job?
I need four rails, each approximately 10 feet long and 32" high. They will
look like ladders when finished. The centers of the spindles would be about
six inches. This is for a second story cabin porch, so it has to keep small
kids and medium sized dogs from squeezing through the spaces. On the ends
of each piece, it will look conical part way, and then cylindrical for a
bit. If you are not familiar with this, Google "tenon cutter", take the
second of third one, and it will show the cutters and the sticks they have
cut. I would like to have the bark removed by a drawknife, but it doesn't
have to be totally smoothed and finished. Once it is up, I will finish what
needs to be finished, and seal.
I DO NOT WANT THEM ASSEMBLED. I will do that. I am going to replace the
square porch support columns with actual trees, and will drill the necessary
holes in them, and mount them.
They will be shipped to either Cedar City, Utah, or Las Vegas, Nevada.
The component pieces would have to be selected straight pieces that are not
likely to warp a lot, and free from major defects. Top and bottom rails
would be 4" and spindles 2". Plus or minus a little.
No, just curious - Lots of folks here have answered a lot of your
questions. Some have blocked you so they no longer see your posts. I'm
giving you the benefit of the doubt. We all can learn from each other.
These types of groups work best when you give back when you can.
<the rant escalates>
Too often (Not you Steve) people ask a question, someone, or many people
jump right in with great answers, suggestions of follow-up questions and
the nothing from the original poster. Its frustrating and discouraging
to those that contribute. If someone asks about jointing on a router it
would be cool if, after they learned a tip from a response here, that
they tried it and reported back on what worked and what didn't. (Just an
example) Or, even better if pictures were posted and linked here of the
project that was complete because of help gleaned here.
Anyway - The more you feed the animals the more they will love you back.
The food is encouragement that their helpfulness is actually helping.
