Finishing the Landing and Attaching the Footpath!

Makers (Winter 2014)Sean Murray

We began today by splitting into two groups: Ethan and Dexter finished blocking the landing (the part of the drawbridge that does not move) while Sean and Trent built the landing's bottom rim and vertical posts.

We assembled the landing and--it fit! Can't say enough about the precision required to build a thing in modules, then have those modules actually fit together!

Then we attached the footpath (the part that draws up and down) to the deck--another great mate!

With the last moments of class we started in the pulley system that will raise and lower the footpath.
