Hello,

Today I completed the basket ( modeled it after Salvatore's version) then moved everything back onto the cement blocks. The next job will be to level everything. While I was working UPS delivered my epoxy and fiberglass. Great timing BBC!

Thanks Pee wee. I won't be using wheels because the whole assembly will be sitting on leveled cement blocks.

Bogie
That explains the blocks in your first picture but the PVC pipe is still a big mystery! :doh: :doh:

Strong back looking good!!
Orangequest,

Yup, the PVC is out of place in that pic. I bought it for drawing curves onto the plywood when I'm laying out the side / bottom panels. Later I'll cut it into spacer rings.

My Meranti BS-6566 arrived today, all 415 lbs of it. The driver, my new best friend Kyle :lol:, even helped me muscle it off the truck. The rain stopped just long enough for me to take delivery and then haul it all out to my workshop in the backyard. The wood is far better quality and a lot lighter than I expected. I should also mention that the packaging was outstanding and the wood survived the shipping process undamaged. Now I have everything I need to get this project rolling.

You are going to be amazed when you wet out the first piece. Everybody thinks it is a shame to have to cover it up with paint.

You're right, Fuzz. This stuff could be used to make beautiful furniture and I was really surprised to see how light it is, especially the 1/2" sheet (s).

Thanks everyone!

I took my time drawing the panels and probably measured everything four or five times before making any cuts. I used my jigsaw (don't have a circular saw I trust enough) and was able to get things pretty fair, but I will still need to do a little sanding to get them right.

This weekend I hope to get the side pieces cut and then get both the bottom and side sections spliced.
