Energized after a hiatus from building, tinkerers rush to start where the left off at the end of Tuesday.
The ferris wheel team quickly picks off with a new seat design.
This time the seat comfortably can fit both tinkerers and collaborators.
More benches are constructed for the feast.
Savan cuts plywood which will be used as the bench top.
The thunderdome team (now called thunderfoam as the combat will be with foam weapons), adds canvas to the door frames. The canvas will be lifted up with a pulley system, releasing the combatants.
Arianna and PK get creative to reach to the top of the thunderfoam.
Watermelon with 3 of the 4 new ferris wheel seats.
With all the pieces ready, it is time to construct the wheel.
The next step is to line the two sides of the wheel up at the corners.
A finished bench is transported to the table in the forest.
The ground is slanted so the team needs to add to the legs to level the bench.
The bridge team starts adding segments to the tensioned cable.
The wheel is finally ready to lift off the ground.
The axle is knocked with a dead blow so that the wheel sits center.
It takes a couple whacks.
We move the wheel to the side supports.
It all fit after some wiggling.
A rotating chair is set up as an additional attraction at our growing festival.
Savan, as the lightest tinkerer, tests the ferris wheel first when it is time to spin it.
Pure joy ensues.
After all our testing, the ferris wheel still stands tall. Tomorrow the team will improve the seats, making them more sturdy.
Being the last build day, the teams tomorrow will push to have finished projects. Soon, the Kingdom of Tinkering School will have a grand festival.
