Texas Ramp Project

Our project this month is a 44' ramp off the end of a porch, which will help a disabled man use his new wheelchair to get to and from his home.  He recently attended a funeral and had a terrible time using the stairs to get back into his home.  The site is shady, just what we like. The weather forecast is scattered showers, but we'll hope for the best.

IF YOU ARE SIGNED UP AND ARE UNABLE TO ATTEND, PLEASE REMOVE YOUR NAME FROM THE LIST.  THERE ARE A LOT OF VOLUNTEERS EAGER TO HELP BUT THERE ARE NO SPOTS AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME.

So if you're interested........ Sign up and we'll see you there!

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 .

    The right hand panel says 14 attending and 0 spots left w 14 people on the waiting list. Is this right?

      That is correct. These lists fill quickly, but folks often have to drop out nearer to the build date. Put your name on the waiting list and keep watching the list for cancellations.

      If they are under the age of 14 they won't be able to use any tools.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
