Dangerous Done Well: The Tower Stands!

Dangerous (Winter 2014)Sean Murray

For our first big project in Dangerous Done Well, we're going to climb on something that we built ourselves.

Before the break, we began construction on an eight-foot wooden tower. After lots of good teamwork...

...the tower was finally standing! But the tower was far too rickety, creaky, and tip-prone to climb. 

So we added diagonal bracing and an extra set of supports orthogonal to the original supports.

We finished just in time for Nico to take a test climb...

...and, of course, clean up.
