    Scale trail bridge

    I have had this idea for a while and finally took the time to build one. Let me know what you think. Its not quite finished yet, I ran out of wood but figured I would post up pics to see what people thought. It measures 6' in length and 13" wide and I used hemp twine to tie everything together.

    Nice. I see you remembered your lashing and knot training from those Boy Scout days. :) To make the bridge a bit of a challenge, why don't you have some broke pieces, or a gap or two on the decking. Most of the real bridges of this type are old and neglected anyway.

    Blast from the past!!!


    I'm glad you bumped it because I've been slacking on mine ... so maybe this will be the kick in the pants I needed.
