Texas Ramp Project

  • Dec 22, 2013 · 12:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

SINCETHERE IS A 100% CHANCE OF RAIN SATURDAY, BUILD HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL NOON ON SUNDAY. MY PHONE NUMBER IS [masked], LEAVE ME A TEXT MESSAGE IF YOU ARE/ARE NOT GOING TO ATTEND.

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 .

    We had a great time today, and provided Betty with a fine new means of exiting her home. Thanks to the 9 people who made it out on a chilly day.

    I live in Waxahachie so I would prefer the Arlington location unless there are too many at that location, in that case I will go to the other location.
