Texas Ramp Project

  • Apr 6, 2013 · 8:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

We've got another long ramp to build this time, 50+ feet.  The home is at the corner of Pipeline and Castle Drive in Hurst-you'll see the big pile of lumber in the yard when you drive up.  Charge up those batteries and let's get to work!

What will we be doing?
You'll do whatever amount of light construction you're comfortable with. Our primary tool is a drill, either cordless or corded. We use them to screw everything together, and when we're not using screws we're using bolts that need a hole drilled first. The work occasionally calls for a circular saw or other power tools, but if you're not comfortable or familiar with those, you won't be asked to use them.

What should we bring?
It's very useful, but not required, to bring a drill, either corded (with an extension cord) or cordless. Any other woodworking tools you want to use are quite welcome, but we'll have at least one of everything needed at the build site. If you've tender hands you might want to bring gloves . You're welcome to bring something to drink .

What should we wear?
This is light construction work. Dress comfortably for the outdoors, and expect to get dirty and sweaty.
