You're being kind. It looks like I slathered a chicken with epoxy and let it loose in there. :D

isn't that how you're supposed to do it?

I tried to say something but God thought I was wrong and filled my mouth with saltwater. I kept my pie hole shut after that.

It's important to use a free ranging chicken. The ones that have been raised in cages just sit there and don't know what to do.

You see! Right there! It is the tips and tricks of the trade like that, that make me grateful I am a member of this forum! Growing up in the midwest and knowing how difficult it is to actually catch a "free range" chicken I would have definitely ordered the wrong kind.

I've cut and shaped all the wood cleats that go along the tops of the frames to provide a surface on which to glue the deck later. Similarly, I notched the frames and fitted the shear clamps to both sides. That'll also provide a glueing surface for the deck.

Now that those parts all fit it's time for assembly. Here's epoxying the port sheer clamp in place.

Assembly will be limited by the number of clamps available!

It is physically impossible to have too many clamps. :lol:

Looks like an ad for a clamp maker!

Glueing the cleats to the interior frames is a bit more of a jumble.

One more day of cleating to go ...
