I multi-tasked

Next is jigging up the stair treads, and welding all the PCs in the next few weeks, think I will use the 6 x 12 table at work.....and the welder of course....lololol.....

Then all the assemble after sub assembling..... May weld at work and use fork trucks to erect my walking steps....a.k.a. The 1/2 round Christmas tree/staircase.

I am honestly doing this now just.....to say I did it

Wife thinks I am crazy.....then she said "glad nothing has changed"

And she was all about " your scared and I will have to go up first to put handrails up before you can join me"

Well dugh "make it safe and then get me a sammich and a beer!"

I can only say that on the internezts though.....

okay it has been a long day...it was beautiful outside...it got to 88* it was an oven

I went with a 36" deck instead of 48 inches....there will still be 3 more feet sticking out the back, at about 6 ft tall

so I started by cutting 2 pc of channel, and welding them to the frame, there is 24 inches of weld plus I will be adding a bunch of bolts later on

It is a pain working alone at times and you got to get creative


everything is basically mocked up



I have tons to do, I also forgot my middle pole which is the backbone of this project, I may drive to work in morning and get it...we will see (2-1/2 hr round trip and $10 gas
