Heavy timber truss

This is our desgin for a  truss that is being installed over a backyard Jacuzzi. They are built from 4″x6″ heavy timbers and bolted together with custom plates.

Here are the plates that are shown in red on the above drawing. These will be bolted with 5/8″ bolts to the timbers to form the truss.

A custom metal fence gate

This is a custom fence gate in the process of being install and before the 2×6 tongue and groove oak boards were sandwiched between the panels.

Here is the gate after the wood decking is in. Poor quality picture.

 

 

Our plasma table from scratch

We looked around and decided we wanted to build our own Plasma cutting table. We have since enlarged it to 4×8 from the original 4×4 shown here. It uses a Hypertherm 45XP Plasma cutter. We can cut up to 5/8″ steel plate in any design.

Here is the table itself almost done.
